Dear Green, Glasgow
Dear Green is behind the #brewathome movement at the moment and encouraging coffee drinkers to support local and brew delicious coffee at home.
Dear Green’s collaboration with Social Bite is a great initiative to support, too. The company have created a blend especially for them and donate £1 from every bag sold to their efforts to end homelessness across Scotland. This is a great way to support local, drink delicious coffee and support this organisation when they need it most.
