A big congratulation to Team SSJ (photo below) that last week took part to the Bupa Great South Run
in support of local homeless and vulnerable people.
Orzo♥Coffee contributed to the little thank you pack for these amazing runners ;-)
We are very happy to support this amazing local charity and their work.
The Society of St James is a Hampshire-based homelessness charity, providing accommodation and support to over 1000 people at any given time. The people that we work with often have diverse and complex issues surrounding homelessness, including substance/alcohol addiction and mental health problems. We believe that everyone has a right to a home. We believe that people should be given the opportunity to develop the skills they need to lead a fulfilling life. We believe that everyone deserves not just a second chance, or a third chance, but as many chances as they need to change their lives for the better.in support of local homeless and vulnerable people.
You can support the Society of St James via their website

Orzo♥Coffee supports the amazing work of Cafe Art UK all year long, but at this time to the year we want to specifically ask for your help!
They have launched a new campaign via Kickstarter to raise funding to support the printing and distribution of their 2014 charity calendar
As Paul from Cafe Art explains: "we decided to create this campaign with Kickstarter, a crowd funding website, to help make it more accessible. All proceeds from the sale this way will pay for the printing of the 3,000 calendars, and that will let us train more vendors to gain employment skills and earn income from themselves. We know that people involved will also gain self-esteem and confidence, helping them move on with their lives".
So, please support this amazing initiative, for only £10 you will make this happen and receive a great Calendar directly posted to you.
Watch the video below and support Cafe Art UK 2014 Calendar.
You can follow them also on twitter @cafeartuk and facebook.
Here we are, it is time to pack our car for the London Vegfest.
We are soooooooo excited!
We love packing the car to go to the next fair. We prepare our small stand with the same love and care as if we were building our own home.
Come and see our stand (G10) tomorrow and tweet a photo of it (#orzofest) or post it on our facebook wall! We have a lovely prize for a lucky winner.
We love meeting people open to new flavour experiences, people who long to hear the story of our barley, a story we are never tired to tell. We like to see the faces, the way people raise their eyebrows in surprise after they have tasted a cup of our barley and ask 'are you sure it is not coffee?', and it feels really good.
We love to tell people why we are different, why we support organic agriculture, why we want to change the world, one cup of orzo at the time. Come to our stall and find out more.
Continues...After 2 days at an event, on our way home it feels like coming home from a foreign land, tired but recharged. Happy to have been the first to bring to the UK the unique taste of caffe' d'orzo!
This is our fantastic #orzofest photogallery!
in this blog you will find some curiosities, updates and events ...so treat yourself to a lovely cup of Orzo & enjoy the reading!
