Connecting with fellow black farmers around the world, The Black Farmer has launched a range of Eco Roast coffees Eco Roast technology is a zero-waste solution that harnesses the energy contained in spent coffee grounds and uses it to roast fresh batches of coffee. The launch range of four coffee selection boxes provides ‘A Taste of the Caribbean’ and ‘A Taste of Africa’ both in roasted and ground and whole bean versions. The selections feature coffee from top producing nations in the Caribbean and Africa – Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Cuba; and Kenya, Ethiopia, Rwanda. Each 240g box contains six x 40g sealed sachets, two for each variant. RRP: £4.79.

Then there are his ‘With a Twist’ tea products. These take well-loved tea variants and add something extra. The range includes Breakfast tea with a Twist of Ginger; Earl Grey with a Twist of Elderflower; Mint Infusion with a Twist of Nettle, and Green Tea with a Twist of Mango and Bergamot. Each 30g box contains 15 fuso bags. RRP: £4.15.

The Black Farmer, Wilfred Emmanuel-Jones, known for his British-farmed meat and egg products says, of the new ranges, “My brand has always been about being more than just a pack of sausages or eggs, but about making real connections with real people. By taking my brand into tea and coffee – both beverages that I love – I am supporting and recognising other black farmers doing great work around the world.”
