    Use locally roasted coffee beans (e.g. Origin, Yallah, Olfactory) wherever possible on campus

      Whilst the current coffee offerings on campus are good, we have 3 excellent coffee roasters on our doorstep - Olfactory in Penryn, Origin in Porthleven and Yallah near Truro. All 3 roasters use direct trade with farms, meaning that coffee producers are paid more than they typically are by larger roasters. Using locally roasted beans wherever possible on campus would keep money in the local economy, have significant sustainability and social justice benefits... and also taste better.

    11:09am on 25 Jan 17 Hi - this one is linked into the tender/contracts that the catering team have with external companies, so I'm told will be a long term project. However, there is also the side of the argument that a decent number of students every year say that they like seeing home brands (eg. starbucks) on campus. Hopefully I'll be looking for a compromise with the catering teams. Thanks, Amanda (FXU President Student Experience).
