Why Corporate and Social Responsibility Is Changing In The Coffee World

Today we launch our new widget with JustGiving, and share with our customers that Corporate and Social Responsibility is part of growth of our brand, allowing

corporate and social responsibilityour coffee marketplace to contribute in more direct ways to the community at large.

We understand that thinking globally can be about delivering locally and we work to develop new initiatives and new innovation around the coffee marketplace, allowing a greater choice and redistribution of resources to the communities that we work with.

In our coffee marketplace we understand that people’s palate are changing none corporate and social responsibilitymore so than how we enjoy coffee, with more people purchasing barista style machines for their homes and purchasing more and more international origin coffees and customers are expecting more.

With the high street moving away from pre-blended coffee, the industry is in the curiosity for the “science” of coffee making—improving grinding methods, better monitoring of water quality, and the types of beans that make up blends, allowing customers to better identify with taste and content of what they are drinking.

This type of transparency is allowing independent coffee chains to better establish their local brands in a growing marketplace which currently supplies approximately 165 million cups of tea and around 70 million cups of coffee that is consumed in the UK each day, according to the UK Tea Council, the market for hot beverages can be considered extremely robust.

As commentators see the high street is Blendly logotransforming from a pure shopping destination to a centre for “leisure and services” as the dramatic rise of the Internet changes the retail landscape demand for high-quality, barista-style coffee in the home has risen in recent years and this has led to innovation in manual, bean-to-cup and capsule coffee machines for the home. This is also helping independent coffee chains to better develop their brand around individual coffee blends.

corporate and social responsibilityThe role of technology in food service has changed dramatically in the past few years, and no more than in the UK, where mobile technology has infiltrated many aspects of regular consumer behaviour with a new generation of gourmets is emerging in the UK aged 18- 35 years old. These consumers are keen on food with an authentic or distinctive positioning, supporting sales growth for imaginative start-ups and independents.

Niche products based around transparency developing the power of the Independent food companies that provide original products that are fresh with local grounding and have international culture are offering a great alternative to existing chains.

The development of a Corporate and Social Responsibility strategy allows the distribution of product and profit also to be redistributed in new and existing ways – allowing global markets to focus on local issues.

Blendly’s ongoing wocorporate and social responsibilityrk in this field are creating and developing framework to create a unique supply chain that offers transparency as well as a fair distribution of profit.

6 Reasons Why Your Coffee Shop is Engine of Economic Growth

The “gig economy” is triumphing over everything else. As that trend gathers force and there is no reason why it should not, people who work for themselves are going to become an ever-more powerful economic and political force.

This “sharing” economy, pioneered by the likes of Uber and Airbnb, is opening up vast new opportunities for working for yourself; so is the spread of broadband, and well-funded start-ups – all those “unicorns”, the billion-plus dollar start-ups – love to take on lots of freelancers and don’t object to paying them pretty well

The rise of the “gig economy” will prove to be a powerful social trend, both in the UK and in most of the developed work. It shows no sign of slowing down – and it is going to impact the economy and the political system far more than most people yet realise.

  1.  Coffee shops are about work in another way, too: the rise of the “gig economy” – the proliferation of freelance workers, digital contractors and entrepreneurs who don’t have an office and can’t afford to rent one – has been crucial in shaping their new role.
  2. With a new generation of gourmets emerging in the UK aged 18- 35 years old. These consumers are keen on food and drink with an authentic or distinctive positioning.
  3. People’s Palate are changing none more so than how we enjoy our coffee, With more people purchasing barista style machines for their homes and purchasing more and more international origin coffees.
  4. With the high street moving away from pre-blended Italian style coffee, The industry is in the curiosity for the “science” of coffee making—improving grinding methods, better monitoring of water quality, and the types of beans that make up blends, allowing customers to better identify with taste and content of what they are drinking.
  5. The High Street is transforming and commentators see the high street is transforming from a pure shopping destination to a centre for “leisure and services” as the dramatic rise of the Internet changes the retail landscape.
  6. The role of technology in food service has changed dramatically in the past few years, and no more so than in the UK, where mobile technology has infiltrated many aspects of regular consumer behaviour.

Would You Choose Sex or Coffee?

Sex or coffee? Coffee is very powerful. It connects us in many ways. But did you know that some people are willing to give up, social media and even sex rather than to go without coffee!

According to a survey published at Daily Mail, Seventy-eight (78) percent of the people said that they are willing to give up drinking, social media or even sex for a year rather than to go without coffee for their whole lives. Sixteen (16) percent are saying that they are not able to talk to other people without having coffee first in the morning.

But the relationship with coffee and sex is well documented A study by the University of Texas has found that men who drank two cups a day were 42 percent less likely to suffer from erectile dysfunction compared to men who didn’t.

For an article for the American science journal PLOS ONE, scientists studied 4,000 men drinking caffeinated drinks including coffee, tea, fizzy and sports drinks and found the result was the same regardless of weight, age or blood pressure.

In a 2006 experiment on female rats by Southwestern University in Texas, scientists found drinking coffee stimulated the parts of the brain that signal sexual arousal. But this effect could possibly was only be seen in women who did not drink coffee regularly.

Scientists have long argued whether too much coffee is bad for you with some arguing drinking more than four cups a day is dangerous as it causes restlessness, tremors, irritability, insomnia and stomach pain.

But in March a separate study on 25,000 middle aged men and women suggested that drinking three to five cups a day could reduce the chances of heart disease or stroke.

 

Why choose Blendly?

Why choose Blendly? We at Blendly noticed that there are at least three degrees of operational activity ordinarily that lie between the consumer and their fresh coffee, restricting the range of options.

This traditional method of creating a commercial coffee blend was based around the coffee production and distribution that has been in place for many years.

  • It meant that coffee blends are sold pre-blended.
  • Customers that wanted to create their own product had a restricted range of choices
  • The Process for blend creation was time-consuming

The ability for customers to create their own coffee blend was slow time consuming, development of your coffee taste was never local and the choices available was limited Coffee blends also tend to lack transparency with regard to the content of the product and the available colours

The Blendly ecosystem allows volumised, customised and transparent coffee blends to be developed.

It allows customers to create their own blend that is unique to the service they want to provide. This creates access to coffee blending as a service and will remove the need to store fresh coffee by intermediaries and distributors.

The Rise of the Speciality Roaster

The rise in speciality coffee culture is widely attributed to a growing number of artisan roasters and specialist independent coffee shops that are reinvigorating the coffee scene and leading the way into the fourth wave of coffee culture, bringing with them an exciting range of single origin and micro-lot coffees that are batch roasted for optimum flavour.

According to a recent Allegra Strategies report looking into the “Future of Coffee”, the speciality coffee segment is expected to see 13% year-on-year growth, outperforming the 10% growth predicted for the UK coffee market as a whole. The same report suggests that the market for speciality coffee will increase by 100% by 2020. Now that is some serious growth by any standards!

The challenge for the small Speciality coffee Roaster are in creating a standard production base that can create a Consistency  in the product as well as be developing a scale that can be relied on for mission-critical products delivery.

Your coffee shop is defined by its coffee. With so many choices out there, you must admit buying coffee can be complicated. That’s why we created Blendly with fresher, better and quicker ways to roast and blend.

Blendly allows you to choose what goes into your bag of coffee, allowing you to explore and create your own product and delivered fresh within few days to your door straight from our speciality coffee factory.

Your Blendly coffee allows you to create your own labelled coffee brand; to share with other people within your network

5 Reasons Why You Should Use Blendly

Why use Blendly? Having a Barista style coffee blend in your office has loads of advantages. Having the ability to customize all the beans, certification, grind and roast has even more. It’s a great way to start a client meeting as well as to show how much you value them. Blendly offers you this ability at a very affordable price. We are very transparent on what goes on your coffee bag.

Here are the top 5 reasons for using Blendly and creating your own blend:

  1. A hot coffee can break the ice. Offering a coffee to a visitor, a new starter or a colleague who’s having a bad day can break the ice at the beginning of a conversation, helping the connection to flow. It can be a great way to start a tricky conversation or make someone feel really welcome in your office.
  2. Grabbing a coffee can provide a well-deserved desk break. It’s healthy to get up and walk around the office several times a day to take a screen break. It will help you to get a good blood circulation going and will help prevent bad posture that is commonly attributed on desk jobs. Getting up to grab a coffee can provide the “excuse” for that well-deserved breather.
  3. A way to say thank you to the team. Employee benefits can help with staff retention. Having a free coffee included in it is a great addition as it will not only save your staff some future weight gains but also on their everyday spending. It’s a great way to show them that they are being appreciated. When the recession hits, companies were seen to get rid of certain staff benefits in the office. Show your staff that your business is strong and you care about them by offering some practical perks.
  4. Coffee can help ideas percolate. It is no coincidence that Google are offering free good meals and beverages for their staff. It’s in order to “inspire innovative thinking”. Your company doesn’t have to be the size of Google before you think about stimulating staff creativity.
  5. It makes the office smell great. Coffee was number for in the top 20 of Britain’s favourite smells in 2016. Filling the office a lovely aroma of coffee will make you a winner with staff and visitors alike.

If you would like to try and have this perks, visit Blendly and start creating your own blend.
