Cafe Paramo - Start making a difference...

With the finest coffee growers around, two communities helping each other through one link,

About Us

Heathfield Community School is proud to have developed a business in which we sell coffee. It is situated in Peru, and the farmers receive a fairer than fair trade price for every pack of their exquisite coffee that we sell. We are proud to support this community by being able to purchase their entire crop. Proceeds from every packet will go directly to the farmers and the local schools attended by their children, helping to buy basics such as tables, chairs, books and pens. The parents of the children are receiving a fair price for their coffee and as a result the children are receiving an education.

This all means that you can enjoy the rich, mellow taste of this delicious coffee whilst knowing you are making a difference to a coffee grower and their family's future.

Cafe Paramo - the new phase!

As a result of many years of hard work, the members of Cafe Paramo have been given a once in a lifetime opportunity to go out to the Dominican Republic (the country supplied coffee to Cafe Paramo at the time). We have worked with the farmers who grow and harvest the coffee beans that we sold. Within the community there is a small orphanage which also benefited from CafĂ© Paramo, so we visited them and connected with them through art projects and games. As well as all of this we went to the primary school which Cafe Paramo has made accessible to all the farmers children. It was an amazing opportunity for us to go out and create a real bond with these people. This trip will help ensure the future of Cafe Paramo, as we have already had opportunities with the project.

Watch the story of how we run our project.

Robbie (a student at Heathfield Community school) grasped the opportunity to promote Cafe Paramo at one of our events. Who would turn up but Michael Eavis CBE, English dairy farmer and the creator of the Glastonbury Festival.

Michael jumped at the chance to purchase some of our delicious coffee and gave up some of his time to listen to our story.

You know where we are Michael, when you need a refill...

Keep your eyes peeled for our next event!
