The Kokako Cafe & Roastery in Grey Lynn has an intrinsic focus on sustainability and really good Fairtrade Organic Coffee! We want to share what we have learnt & influence other businesses and customers to follow our lead. We've thought about just about every process in our business and although we know we're not perfect, we think we've covered all the bases.
Our cafe fitout was approached with a focus on using local suppliers and up-cycling of 'found' materials that could be placed in a contemporary setting. Many of the internal windows, doors & merchandise was sourced from Grey Lynn salvage yards and given a new life. Where we've created new joinery we've used a local supplier, even re-manufacturing a range of metal chairs from the 1950's.
Our menu has a strong focus on organic & natural ingredients and where possible we source from local or New Zealand suppliers. We have honey from a local Grey Lynn beekeeper, Mozzarella from a local artisan cheesemaker and by default we use Free Range Organic Eggs from FRENZ.
We have been 'conscious' of being a sustainable business for over 10 years, and so the badges we have as a Conscious Consumers Cafe are not something we have strived for, we see them as just the way we do things at Kokako. We look forward to welcoming you, where you'll be able to try one of our Certified Fairtrade Organic Coffees roasted right on the premises!
Composting turns organic waste into a wonderful soil conditioner, and helps reduce the production of methane gas. Each year it is estimated that Kokako Cafe and Roastery diverts
8,100 kilos of organic waste from landfill.
