The supplier and installer of commercial coffee machines, Liquildine, has partnered with Change Please, a social enterprise that helps lift people out of homelessness.
It may be bold to say that a cup of coffee changed your life, but when you choose Change Please coffee for your business, it may genuinely be helping to transform the lives of people experiencing homelessness around the UK.
Change Please helps by retraining them as baristas, providing Living Wage employment and offering additional support with housing, finances and mental health.
Launched in 2015 with a coffee cart in London’s Covent Garden, Change Please has gone from strength to strength, now operating several outlets in central London, alongside collaborations with big names including Virgin Atlantic and David Lloyd. It also has its own brand of coffee beans, which Liquidline will be promoting to its existing network of commercial coffee machine customers.
As a company with strong community values, Liquidline jumped at the chance to collaborate with Change Please to assist them in their mission to eliminate homelessness in the UK.
Change Please has created a new blend of coffee beans especially for Liquidline. The Paloma blend is a dark-medium roast that’s full-bodied and well balanced with caramel sweetness and a rich cocoa aftertaste.
To complement the new coffee offering, Liquidline is also offering a range of specially selected commercial coffee machines that are available in Change Please branding to help companies promote the values of their new life-changing coffee and get buy-in from staff and customers.
John Collins, commercial director at Liquidline, commented: “The past 12 months have been especially challenging for Change Please, which relied on the profits from its coffee outlets to provide employment and secure housing for people affected by homelessness.
“By partnering with Liquidline we hope to introduce fantastic coffee to a much wider audience, providing an additional revenue stream and supporting them in their mission to end homelessness.”
