Sipping Sustainably: NUMA’s Ethical Coffee & Tea Choices

In a world where traditional hotels often forget about being eco-friendly, NUMA stands out by offering guests a greener experience. Instead of filling up landfills with unnecessary trash, we're integrating sustainability in each stage of the guest journey. Say goodbye to those single-use plastics—here at NUMA, we're all about reusable options like our soaps and lotions, glass cups, ceramic mugs, and even drinks served in reusable glass bottles for our awesome Numa members! Oh, and did we mention our complimentary water? It comes in Tetrapaks that you can toss into the recycling bin when you're done. Plus, our coffee and tea packaging? Totally biodegradable. But it's not just about what we use– it's also about where it comes from. That's why we've teamed up with some amazing sustainable suppliers who share our passion for incredible quality while keeping the planet in mind.

Grind: Brewing Sustainability and Ethically

Grind coffee pods aren't your average cup of joe—they're a game-changer, and here's why. They're the first in the UK to be certified home-compostable, crafted from 100% plastic- and aluminium-free organic matter (PHA). So when you brew a cup using Grind pods, you're not just getting a delicious coffee fix—you're making a sustainable choice that helps reduce the millions of pods that end up in landfills every day. And guess what? Every single NUMA room comes equipped with a coffee maker, so you can start your day, whether it's exploring a new city or tackling a new project at work, with the best coffee to perk you up.

They're all about regenerative farming, ensuring that every sip supports growers who prioritize resource efficiency and biodiversity. By working directly with coffee bean producers, Grind establishes and maintains long-term collaborative relationships that go beyond what a Fair Trade certification could offer. So not only do you get to enjoy a great cup of coffee, but you also contribute to a more sustainable future with each sip.

Paper & Tea: Fair Sourcing and Eco-Friendly Packaging

Driven by a passion for creativity and innovation, Paper & Tea isn't just about providing a great cuppa—it's about making a positive impact every step of the way. They're all about ethically sourcing tea leaves and ensuring fair wages and conditions for small tea farmers, making sure that your tea break isn't just enjoyable but also supports communities worldwide. Plus, just like with the coffee, every single NUMA room comes with a kettle and Paper & Tea's delicious teas, so you can enjoy a moment of calm and relaxation, guilt-free. With their commitment to eco-friendly packaging materials that are recyclable, biodegradable, or compostable, Paper & Tea proves that sustainability can be steeped in every cup. So go ahead, take a pause or wind down from the day with a delicious and low-impact cup of tea, courtesy of NUMA and Paper & Tea.
