The Moving Beans Team is proud to announce its new partnership with Travel Without Plastic!
Travel Without Plastic is an initiative started by a group of veteran hotel and tourism industry execs.
They are on a mission to use their knowledge and experience to revitalize the travel industry and help make the operations of key players in the biz more sustainable.
Having worked with and audited hundreds of hotels since 2001, they've worked with General Managers, Housekeepers, Receptionists, Gardeners, Food and Beverage Staff, Entertainers and Spa Colleagues, and have come to know the challenges in implementing change in the industry better than anyone else.
We're delighted to be working with them, helping the environment one cup of coffee at a time (or one vacation at a time!)

Let’s explore today the beauty of coffee blends. They are a world on their own and by no means of inferior quality than single origin coffees. Blends are in essence a smart way of mixing single origin coffee beans. Let’s recap single origins: there are two large bean families, Arabica and Robusta. Arabica grows at a higher altitude than Robusta, yielding a richer bean with more concentrated flavours and thus floral and fruity notes. Robusta instead is a more resilient species that grows at lower altitudes and tends to provide coffee with often woody and earthy notes. Importantly, Robusta has typically double the caffeine of Arabica.
John here. I run a small business of 31 people. It’s mainly office work, i.e. a lot of work behind computers and loads of coffee which not only keeps us awake but also very social :).
The topic of "sustainability" comes up more and more frequently in our coffee chats. It’s all over the news, 24/7. My staff and I are becoming increasingly worried about the state of affairs. And we are all keen to make a difference, even if it is a small drop in the ocean at this point.
