HOW WE GOT STARTED
Silvr Coffee Co was started as a hobby during the Covid-19 crisis. As we inadvertently were part of a rising social climate, and saw many companies who hold a significant place in the coffee community fail to support the marginalized people who have supported them. We took a closer look at our own coffee community and saw a lack of diversity, tolerance and support that we were often blind to. We couldn't wait for these companies to care. So we thought, "Why not do it ourselves?" And thus Silvr Coffee Co went from being a hobby to becoming a small business attempting to set new standards and expectations for the coffee world... one coffee bag at a time.
LET'S BE REAL
We buy our green coffee from Mayorga Organics. We find that their mission of shortening the supply chain, and providing fair wages aligns closely with our core values. They strive to eliminate poverty in Latin America through responsible trade of organic foods.
Our second green bean supplier is bought directly from coffee grower Samuel Ronzon of La Joya Microbeneficio in Veracruz, Mexico. @ronzonsam
Our bags are made of White kraft paper and aluminum foil fused protective inner lining and LLDPE. The 5.2 mil laminated material offers an excellent aluminum barrier to protect against moisture and air. Since LLDPE maintains its base properties during the recycling process, it is a commonly recycled material.
Packaging & Products
Our envelopes are made of kraft paper and our merch boxes are made of cardboard. Shirts are made of either 100% cotton that is biodegradable or a 50/50 Polyester Cotton blend that can be recycled back into a polyester chip, which then goes through the traditional fiber making process. Stickers are made of matte paper with a recyclable adhesive.
We make almost all our labels, stickers, accessories in shop. We don't like to waste anything. Even though many aspects of our brand have changed, we are committed to using all of our old accessories before making new ones. Defective labels or paper scraps are kept in a dry-waste garbage bag to be recycled or made into recycled paper. (Yes we're taking that on in the futue). Our used inkjet cartridges go to recycling programs like Best Buy Ink Cartridge Recycling Program or organizations like:
We do our best to always do good. In the past, we raised money to donate to the NYC school system, participated in the BLM movement, promote diversity on our platform and frequently host Instragram Live brewing sessions. Not only do we teach viewers about coffee, but also offer a space for everyone to hang out and talk about what's on their mind. Most of our little victories are posted on instagram and facebook stories. Keep up with us at @silvrcoffeeco
