Which water filter is best? | Impact Berry

Everybody on earth should have access to clear, filtered drinking water. For every cup of ImpactBerry coffee you drink, you contribute to clean drinking water for the people in the communities who grow and cultivate the robusta coffee beans.

While getting to know local communities in both Vietnam and Indonesia, we saw first-hand the necessity of being able to have access to clean drinking water every day, irrespective of how developed an area is. In Indonesia, we partner with the Pituq Foundation, providing funds from your coffee purchases. Pituq distributes much-needed water filters to rural communities, which are made in Bandung, a small city in the mountains of Java, the second biggest island of Indonesia. Each water filter provides clean drinking water for about 25 people. The ceramic-charcol filter inside can be cleaned by cooking it in boiling water.  Rather than importing water filters from abroad, we prefer to support the distribution of water filters made locally in Indonesia. This has been one of the important factors for us to answer to the question:

"Which water filter is best?"

Over the last few months, through Pituq we’ve been redistributing funds for rice, masks and basic needs due to the on-going coronavirus pandemic, and so we have still kept our commitment to supporting Pituq strong. And by drinking Impact Berry coffee, you are furthering this work, too.

As a coffee business with a supply chain that revolves around Creating Shared Value (CSV), Impact Berry is a huge fan of other brands and initiatives like ours. Sustainability is at the top of the list for these shared values, and we're excited to introduce some local Hong Kong and international brands that we love and support. They put the environment first but truly bring added value to the products and ideas they offer. Many are organic brands but take their methodology beyond the organic label for a comprehensive approach to responsible business and consumption.
