We’ve always supported local community events and welcome the chance to provide prizes and giveaways to help fundraise for schools, sports teams and other community projects. Over 150 groups around Christchurch and further afield have lapped up the latte love.
Each October across all our stores you'll see our staff looking pretty in pink. It's a fun-filled day for all and also helps us to raise awareness (and money) for the programmes and initiatives of the New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation.
So far, we've raised thousands of dollars, and with the continued support from our loyal guests, we're looking forward to raising thousands more.
Sweaty riders are welcome in our stores and the clack, clack of cleats is a familiar sound. Every year we run our exclusive event Tour de Coffee Culture which involves cycling between our stores and collecting prizes and rewards along the way.
In 2010 we launched the Coffee Culture Charitable Foundation with two distinct aims. The first is to support young people in our communities to achieve their full potential. The CCCF makes scholarship grants of $500 available to teenagers every year to help them in pursuit of their goals. So far with your help, we have been able to help out 53 secondary school students!
Taking care of our planet is everyone’s responsibility. Over the past few years we’ve overhauled a bunch of our business practises to make sure we’re doing all we can to minimise our impact on the earth.
Reuseable cups, using local produce, eco-friendly packaging, and recycling and re-purposing anything we possibly can such as coffee sacks, magazines and newspapers, and even our milk bottles are just some of the ways we're pitching in.
