Project Overview

Heroica's Success Story

Heroica is passionate about coffee. Their mission is to produce quality coffee in partnership with our local farmers and landowners, through respecting the natural landscapes. Their first farm was at Kalinga, growing Arabica coffee. In their first year, their first harvest was sold to Blue Bottle Coffee, a specialty coffee roaster and retailer in the USA focusing on single-origin beans.

Impact

Our Next Venture

After the success of Kalinga and seeing the increasing challenges that coffee farmers face, Heroica aims to expand their footprint to safeguard the future of coffee farmers. The new venture will cultivate liberica coffee on a larger area in Subic Bay, Philippines through agroforestry approach and simultaneously reforest an adjacent track of land. Similar to Kalinga, Heroica plans to work with the local tribal community, supporting their goals to preserve their way of life and protect the rich natural habitat.

Sttoke, a [2-3 word descriptor] will be contributing 1% of sales to support the new project.

Arkadiah will support digital measurement and monitoring services (dMRV), advisory and workflow support to bring this project to the carbon credit market.

The Issue

Coffee Farmers' Uncertain Future

Smallholder coffee farmers are facing escalating pressures from climate crisis and supply chain inequity.

Mounting Risks
Yield decline for Arabica bean due to global adverse weather events

Environmental Toll
Deforestation and land degradation fueled by conventional farming practices

Income Inequity
Smallholders farmers produce 60%-80%1 of the world’s coffee yet earn ~5% of total revenue

The Solution

A Better Way To Farm

Introducing an almost forgotten but widely favoured Liberica coffee known locally as Kapeng Barako back into the coffee farmers of Philippines.

Liberica Coffee
Climate resilient species sought after for its bold, smokey flavours

Agroforestry and Regenerative Farming
Intercrop with other cash crop and reforestation, with reduced chemicals usage

Farm-to-cup integrated economic model
Extended role in value chain beyond farming into processing, roasting and beyond

STTOKE

The World’s First Shatterproof Ceramic Cup.
It started as a project to join the fight against waste. The idea was to develop a product that people would naturally want to use, an easy step to a sustainable lifestyle.
So, we introduced the World’s First Shatterproof Ceramic Reusable Cup, a groundbreaking creation that earned accolades from two esteemed global design awards, and it took Melbourne by storm.
