With the ongoing situation in Ukraine, the whole team at Masteroast wanted to do something in support.
With the support of the facility’s team we have prepared and shipped 3 pallets of coffee goods to Ukraine. Coffee Bags and Bulk Brew products – hopefully will be of use and well received.
This has been done with the support of the team at PC Howard – one of our key logistics partners, who have arranged the transportation of ours and other manufacturer’s goods to the country.
Guess who’s turning forty?

A recent experiment conducted in Costa Rica, has tested whether coffee pulp, a leftover of the coffee growing process, could help bring rainforests back to life.
Researchers covered one parcel of grass with about 20 inches of coffee pulp and left the other untouched. After two years, the plot of land given a boost from coffee showed a dramatic improvement. Eighty percent of the plot was covered by young tree canopy, some trees already 15 feet versus just 20 percent in the untreated plot. In the coffee-fueled plot, trees were also four times taller on average, soil samples were more nutrient-rich, and invasive grasses had been eliminated.
“This really was like a forest on caffeine. I think it’s really promising.” Said the study author, Rebecca Cole.

A recent study by the British Medical Journal has found that advanced prostate cancer sufferers are 16% less likely to die if they are heavy coffee drinkers. Every cup of coffee could reduce prostate cancer risk by as much as 1%.
Researchers considered data from 16 relevant studies published up until September 2020.
They linked the anti-inflammatory properties of coffee to the improved prognosis of patients and by this metric, it could also reduce the chance of getting the terrible disease altogether.
