Alpaca are part of the 1% for the planet group, giving 1% of their profits back to drive sustainable causes in them world.
Alpaca Coffee launched on Kickstarter in April 2020 as the "100% Plastic Free Coffee Company" and was chosen as a Kickstarter "Projects We Love"! They managed to raise enough money to get the first version of the product off the ground and we were backed by over 160 backers.
Over the course of 2020 - 2021, Alpaca went through further developments as the team worked hard to improve the quality, sustainability and ethics of the coffee. During this time, Mo, Head of Coffee, the very first person to join the company, came onboard.
Alpaca joined the Social Starter's Pernod Ricard mentoring program and were accelerated by an impact business growth programme, funded by the European Union's Regional Development Fund and London & Partners. Their founder was also named "Young Entrepreneur of the Year" 2021 by the Great British Entrepreneur Awards, in partnership with Starling Bank!
We're excited to feature this forward facing, sustainable and hip brand with a feature in the Secret Caffeine Club.
