UE Coffee Roasters are an independently owned and family run business based on Oxford
Established by Dominic and Daniella Boyett in 2009, their mission was to offer great coffee whilst making it accessible to everyone. They dedicated the last decade to learning, working hard, and building more than just another coffee brand. Ue Coffee Roasters is more than the sum of its parts, they have learned that it takes a team with passion and determination in the pursuit of excellence to make a company great.
Although based in Oxfordshire their people come from different areas of the UK and Europe and their coffees from Central to South America, Africa and beyond. They believe that coffee is more than a pleasant drink and morning staple, it can do good for local and distant communities. Their Barista Foundation was established to help to make the world a better place both at home and abroad.
The Barista foundation supports two charities – the Elephant Valley Project and the Homelessness Oxford. EVP is a sanctuary developed for elephants that have spent their life in captivity and may have been overworked and injured. They currently care for 11 elephants, each with their own mahout; someone who has normally spent their life around elephants from a young age and has a very close bond with the particular elephant that they care for. EVP is one of very few true sanctuaries, they want the elephants to just be elephants in a stress-free natural habitat.
Homeless Oxfordshire have been supporting people in the county for 30 years, providing meals, education, training, welfare support and accommodation. They provide a safe space and expert support to help give homeless people control and independence. One of the charity’s main aims is to end homelessness
