Caravan Coffee Roasters, set up by Kiwi chef Miles Kirby with Kiwi friends Laura Harper-Hinton and Chris Ammerman, has launched Coffee Relief.

It’s an initiative in partnership with Comic Relief to support this year’s Red Nose Day.

Running from the 1 to 15 March, Caravan and its restaurant siblings on Exmouth Market and King’s Cross will donate 10p from every cup of coffee sold (including both takeaways) and 50p from every bag of its house-blend roasted coffee sold to Comic Relief. Caravan also encourages other specialty roasters and independent cafes and restaurants around the UK to do the same. During Coffee Relief, Caravan will serve its takeaway coffee in specially branded Red Nose Day cups, adding a little comic relief to your daily brew.

The Kiwi’s Caravan firm has been providing Londoners with their seasonal espresso blends and single origin coffees since 2010. Sourcing specialty coffee from single farms and estates, the roastery says it has always championed quality, provenance and sustainability, as well as maintaining fair trade relationships with its growers. Caravan Coffee Roasters has received much accolade for its coffee and the skill of its roasters and baristas, including the ‘Best Independent Coffee House’ award from Restaurant Magazine in 2014 and placing third in the ‘World Barista Championships’ in 2014. The roastery also and supplies a host of London’s leading restaurants and cafés. The team at Caravan hope to further support ethical and responsible coffee sourcing around the world through Coffee Relief and its partnership with Comic Relief and Red Nose Day 2015.

Since it launched in 1985, Comic Relief has raised millions of pounds through fundraising campaigns, such as Red Nose Day, to tackle the root causes of poverty and social injustice. Coffee Relief is a new initiative this year from the charity, piloting with Caravan Coffee Roasters, to raise money to transform lives in the UK and across Africa. Other fundraising activities for Comic Relief have already begun, with a host of famous faces such as Davina McCall, Nick Grimshaw, Fearne Cotton and Lenny Henry spreading Comic Relief’s message through a variety of media activities.
