The carbon footprint of a cup of coffee can depend on many factors:
- Methods that were used to grow and harvest
- Distance traveled to roaster/processor
- Energy consumed roasting and packaging
- Distance traveled to your city/shop
- Type of packaging used (recyclable or compostable? Plastic vs paper?)
Type of cup used
- Reusable vs disposable
Coffee shop footprint
- Renewable vs fossil fuel
- Efficiency of electrical equipment
Type of milk used (if any)
- Dairy or plant-based
- For beverages that use milk, the type of milk used is the single most significant portion of the carbon footprint of the beverage. A plain cup of coffee for example is on average 50g whereas a latte is 350g (dairy milk) or 140g (plant-based milk)

Carbon footprint is not the only factor to be considered. Land use, water use, and amount of waste generated are other factors among others. This applies to all aspects of daily consumption, not just coffee.Have more questions? Contact us!
