Tank Coffee Partners Project Waterfall

Here at Tank we are very excited to be supporting Project Waterfall!

Project Waterfall is the charity of choice for the coffee industry, working to end the water crisis in our lifetime. After all you can’t make Coffee without Water!


Why Water? Why Coffee?

771 million people around the world don’t have access to clean water. The majority live in isolated, rural areas – the same areas growing our coffee.

While we enjoy the purest filtered water in our coffee, the communities at the end of its supply chain face a water crisis.

Coffee is a water-intensive crop with a large water footprint. Up to 840L of water is needed to make one 750ml pot of coffee. That’s more than tea, sugar, wheat, and barley.

It’s wrong that while we enjoy the purest filtered water in our coffee, the communities at the end of its supply chain face a water crisis.

This is why it’s our mission to unite the coffee industry and coffee consumers to give back to the communities growing our coffee by investing in sustainable clean water, sanitation and hygiene projects.

Funding Sustainable Projects

The funding we provide will fund and train local people who can continue to maintain the water source long after we have left, ensuring a permanent supply of clean water.

100% Promise

Our new Coffee blend has been released in partnership with Project Waterfall – £1.50 from the sale of Tank Coffee ‘Waterfall’ and ‘Waterfall Espresso Blends’ will now go to funding clean water projects.

Focused On Water

Access to water, sanitation and hygiene is a crucial step in breaking the poverty cycle as it underpins all other development issues. Project Waterfall works to provide clean water to the African communities where Tank Coffee is grown. Our farmers and our families will continue to benefit from the sale of Tank Coffee.


Improves Health and Sanitation

1.6 million people die every year from water-related diseases, with children affected the most.

Clean water changes this, as does education around good hygiene.


Empowering Women and Children

Every day, women and young girls spend up to 8 hours collecting water that weighs, on average, 20 kilos. This can lead to spinal and pelvic deformities, miscarriages and chronic fatigue, and prevents girls from attending school.

Safe, clean water and sanitation brings greater access to education, income and ultimately a better life. Communities can grow healthy food and start small businesses, while better toilet facilities increase school attendance.

Supporting Africa

Here at Tank Coffee we are super passionate about supporting our Farmers and the communities in which our Coffee is grown. The reason Tank Coffee was born was with this goal in mind – we are an ethical Coffee company –  and we are so happy to be able to work with Project Waterfall – another opportunity for us to help people. Project Waterfall currently has projects in the areas where our Coffee is grown – our new Waterfall and Waterfall Espresso range will now help to continue these projects and future projects.

Project Waterfall allows us to contribute directly into coffee growing communicates around the world with the best possible accountability and transparency.

The partnership enables us to share stories and photos right from their communities, so you can see for yourself the positive impact you make when you buy from tankcoffee.com.
