    Perc is a Leeds (UK) based coffee app business making specialty coffee more accessible with thehelp of the world’s most passionate coffee enthusiasts and professionals!

    Launched on the 1st June 2017 - we'd encourage you to head over iTunes and pop £2.99 into the meter and give Palate a whirl.

    Click here to find out more about Palate - the coffee tasting app

    Perc has created Palate as a simple app, designed to start complex conversations, and they would love to know what you think of it! Perc wants this to be the most useful tool possible and can’t do that without your help and opinions.

    Just to briefly mention what's already planned for a "pro features” update late July:

    • Browse your entire collection of taste cards, stored within the app
    • An additional square add-on so the taste card can change from a square to a rectangle as needed. This allows for more data inputs such as:
      • Location data, brew method, & a general text field
      • Data fields to showcase your entire brew recipe
      • Data fields for extraction data and other technical stuff

    • An ace or two up our sleeves that we’re not revealing just yet

    But, in the meantime we’ll be honing Palate into the most useful and easily usable version of itself that it can be. We’ve had some great feedback so far and are looking forward to hearing yours.

    The Perc team.

    Order ahead technology pioneer Ordoo collated the interactive map of London’s queueless independent venues, where you can pay in advance from your mobile device and collect at your leisure.

    Attachment 26412

    A stark divide is evident between north and south London. Those living north of the river have access to over 95% more venues using mobile ordering technology, suggesting the Great British love of queueing is less ingrained in areas like Shoreditch and around the Silicon Roundabout.

    Recent months have seen giant chains such as Presto, Starbucks and McDonalds launch their own order ahead technology, seeking to latch onto a tech trend that has taken the hospitality world by storm.

    Cafes, restaurants and other smaller venues can save what amounts to three and a half days a year in customer queuing, ordering and payment time with mobile ordering technology. With Ordoo, cafes can also create better customer experiences through leveraging data generated by the platform and smooth their operations.

    Ordoo founder and CEO Tom Dewhurst commented: “It’s amazing to see the traction mobile ordering is seeing north of the river, and here at Google Campus we’re seeing it work every day. There’s no need for south Londonders to queue either though - this is something that really doesn't have to remain a British tradition!

    “We’re rolling our system out all over London so more customers and more venues can enjoy a slicker experience and simpler operations.”

    The goal:

    The Clean Coffee Project wants to force the European Government to implement a deposit system for single-use coffee capsules made out of a toxic mixture of plastics and aluminium.


    We can not afford to waste valuable resources, water and energy. As most of the capsules end up in the general trash and only a small amount of them return back into the recycling process, most end up on landfills and finally in the ocean.

    Facts & Figures:
    As the companies do not publish any numbers, the real amount of consumed capsules can not be figured exactly.

    In 2014 Germany alone consumed between 2 and 3 Billion single-use coffee capsules. That equals 4000 to 5000 tons of plastic and aluminium waste.

    The industry estimates that Market leader Nespresso sold 8 Billion aluminium capsules in 2013 worldwide. That equals 8 Million kilograms of aluminium waste.

    The recycled aluminium can not be used for new capsules. Therefore Nespresso always needs primary aluminium.

    The average capsule contains around 4-6 g of coffee wrapped up with 2 to 3 g of packaging.

    The Story:

    Buy it, consume it and throw it away. Single-use coffee capsules are the embodiment of our throw-away society. A quick enjoyment to feed our convenience,
    the latest lifestyle product

    Not only these capsules are wasting valuable resources during production and afterwards in the recycling process - they can't be recycled easily. Because they are made out of a mix of materials like plastic, foils, paper and aluminium. Plastic and aluminium are toxic and apart from that there are plenty different systems on how European countries organize, execute and control their recycling system.

    The companies say that they have a proper working recycling system, but the truth is that they leave it to the customer. The result: most of the used capsules end up in the general trash, on landfills and finally endanger the environment and the ocean.

    The conclusion of a Study carried out by the Zero Waste Research Center in 2010 is

    The only solution is a deposit system.

    Read the full statement:

    Therefore the Clean Coffee Project has created the campaign page To sign the petition, to offer information about the problem, to show eco-friendly alternatives. And to invite Companies and NGO`s to join the campaign and become „Supporting Partner“.

    The Clean Coffee Project is a campaign from the Clean Ocean Project, a Non- Governmental Organisation (NGO) which is based on Fuerteventura, Canary Islands.
