Coffee & Coal
A Story about Mining
County Durham's Heritage coast is renowned for its contribution to the UK's mining industry.
Little pit villages filled with people, workers digging deep to supply the nation with fuel, a humble people known only as Pit Yakkas living in the collieries and clocking in beneath the coastal landscape, searching for coal.
The mining industry once a bustling business supported the North East for many years. The Yakka Coffee Co. is born to remember our history here in the North East, a brand that has direct links to the North East mining family, honestly, that's my dads mining lamp from his time down 'The Pit'.
We aim to celebrate the history of this land. All of our coffees are named using terms associated with 'The Pit', some well known, some not so well known, but all chosen for a reason.
Our vision is to be able to grow and develop a sustainable & ethical business, supporting other local businesses wherever we can. Our aim is to give a % of any profit back to the community through charitable donations.
Thank you for supporting this business, I truly hope you enjoy the coffee.
