We are celebrating UK Coffee Week this week (7th – 13th April) with the lovely Slow Food UK. Slow Food UK is hosting a Coffee Quiz, to help you learn more about coffee and offers a prize draw to win a Lavazza A Modo Mio machine!
Although OrzoCoffee is caffeine-free and does not contain any coffee, we are 100% behind the initiatives of UK Coffee Week and the raising of awarness of the working conditions and livelihoods of coffee workers around the world.
Since we started OrzoCoffee we have also been members and supporters of Slow Foood UK and its values: "We work to reconnect people with where their food comes from and how it is produced so they can understand the implications of the choices they make about the food they put on their plates. We encourage people to choose nutritious food, from sustainable, local sources which tastes great" (www.slowfood.org.uk)
So why not entering the SLOW FOOD COFFEE QUIZ this week?
You could WIN a Lavazza A Modo Mio coffee machine, donated to Slow Food by Lavazza and the winner will also receive a special delivery from us: three Lavazza A Modo Mio compatible OrzoCoffee Pods, one of our eco-jute bas and bookmark.
in this blog you will find some curiosities, updates and events ...so treat yourself to a lovely cup of Orzo & enjoy the reading!
