Barista & Co started as an idea in 2011 while drinking an iced coffee in Hanoi, Vietnam. Sat at that street café, founders James and Louise watched people take a moment for themselves or to talk with those around them. All brought together by a coffee that was crafted with simple tools as it had been for many years. On returning to the UK, James and Louise combined their love of coffee with their experience working in the retail sector and made Barista & Co a reality.
An old tradition from the Italian city of Naples was to order your normal coffee but pay for two providing a caffe sospeso, or suspended coffee. This act of kindness was then passed on to someone less fortunate who could enjoy a coffee on you. Every time you buy a Barista & Co product they give a coffee to the homeless or less fortunate.
Also, every product purchased from the Teal range triggers a donation to Project Waterfall, a charity who bring clean water, sanitation, and education to coffee-growing communities across the globe.
Barista & Co calculate their carbon footprint on an annual basis and with Trees for Life, a conservation charity dedicated to rewilding the Scottish Highlands, plant 4 trees for every tonne of carbon used.

In 2008, the original Moka Express was included as a masterpiece of modern art in the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA), New York, Department of Architecture and Design

You may recall seeing UpCircle Beauty (as their original brand name, Optiat), on Dragon's Den in 2018, when they accepted a joint offer from Touker Suleyman and Tej Lalvani.
Speaking to GLAMOUR about the brand story, co-founder William Brightman, explained: "Back in 2015, we had a thought: if we’re throwing away a cafetière full of coffee grounds every morning, how much is going to waste from coffee shops all over London? A lot, as it turns out. So we decided to do something about it. We needed a way to give those coffee grounds a new lease of life. And UpCircle was born. Since then, we’ve saved approximately 35 tonnes of coffee from landfill, based on our current growth rates we estimate that we will have saved an additional 1000 tonnes in the next 5 years."
When Jamie and Abigail Forsyth started a café business in Melbourne, Australia in 1998, disposable cups were just entering the public landscape. In 2007, following unsuccessful trials of existing reusable cups, they decided to design and make their own – a barista standard reusable cup for people to enjoy better coffee on the go.
They took a gamble that usability, sustainable manufacturing practice, and design aesthetics could drive behaviour change and make a difference in how people think about convenience culture. The first KeepCups were sold to coffee-loving Melbournians at a small, underground design market. The reuse movement grew from there, with the support of the café and roaster community endorsing change.
KeepCup has grown from a solution to a problem, to define a product category. Today, KeepCups are used in more than 65 countries around the world. KeepCup users divert millions of disposable cups from landfills every day, and through their actions inspire others to do the same.
