Project Waterfall is raising £15,000 to build a fully integrated water supply in Jabi Tehnan (Ethiopia) & bring clean water to 5,000 people.

Regular Donations: After you have completed your donation you will be able to set-up a regular donation arrangement to continue supporting this great cause.


785 million people around the world don’t have access to clean water. The majority live in isolated and 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. This is why Project Waterfall exists.


Our work is now under threat. COVID-19 has been catastrophic for the coffee industry (therefore reducing our fundraising) and those at its source: coffee farmers and their communities.  

These communities don’t have the necessary clean water and hand-washing facilities to help stop the spread of infectious diseases, making our work more important than ever. 


Since 2018 we’ve raised £320,000 for our latest project in Jabi Tehnan (Ethiopia) and reached over 6,000 people with clean water in partnership with WaterAid. 

We urgently need another £15,000 to complete construction of a fully integrated water supply which will give clean water to a further 5,000 people.


Help us raise that final £15,000 (or even more!). Every penny goes straight to the project. 

In return we’ve got caffeine-fueled rewards and experiences starting from £10...


Please note: rewards can be shipped to the UK only. You can still support our campaign from anywhere in the world, but unfortunately we won't be able to send out a reward.

Access to clean water changes everything. 

Child mortality rates drop. Girls can spend more time in school. Women can start their own businesses. And dignity is restored to communities. 

At Project Waterfall we’re working to end the water crisis in our lifetime. It can be done and we would love your support. 

This project is in partnership with our partners WaterAid
