Kua is a social enterprise that does world-positive coffee. Established 2018, we use coffee
as a vehicle to inspire fair and circular consumption.
We founded Kua after working with subsistence farmers in Uganda. Here, we realised that
our consumptive behaviours are completely disconnected from the global issues they
perpetuate. We created Kua to join these dots. For fairness, 100% of profits fund
development programs in Uganda. For circularity, all waste coffee grounds are collected for
Kua is working with Global Changemakers to roll out a series of workshops designed to
challenge consumers with two simple questions:
1. where does your coffee come from?
2. where does your coffee waste end up?
Most don’t know the answers ... and the ramifications of this “not knowing” ripple across
borders. By empowering consumers with an intimate understanding of these questions and
the associated impact, we can inspire a shift towards fair and circular alternatives.
