NO INTEREST – OUR BUY NOW PAY LATER OPTIONS

THINGS WE HAVE NO INTEREST IN.

There’s a lot we have no interest in here at Single O. Waiting in line, dirty grinders, and branded umbrellas, among many others. But getting coffee, killer equipment, and other goodies without having to wait? That does interest us. Which is why we’re launching two Buy Now Pay Later (BNPL) services in our online shop: Zip and Afterpay. Now, the fact that Zip and Afterpay have no interest, is a rather confusing concept, because we ARE interested in making sure you don't pay more than you have to for the best coffee experience at home.

CREATIVE BRIEF: TURN SINGLE O 18

BACKGROUND:

In 2021 Single O turns 18! And we want to celebrate! However, given the average age of our staff is around 30, that ‘18 feeling’ is a ‘lil hard to truly remember. So, being the authentic brand that we are, we’d prefer to let someone who is living that 18 feeling to tell us what that is really like – through a piece of art. This is an exciting opportunity for an 18-year-old creative/artist to design/create the label for our next limited release 18th birthday coffee.

MISSIONS AGAINST EMISSIONS – WE’RE NOT LEAVING IT UP TO THE POLLIES!

MISSIONS AGAINST EMISSIONS for No Death to Coffee

 
Despite Scomo claiming that café’s aren’t going to contribute to achieving net zero emissions by 2050, we’re just not ones to sit around and wait for politicians to take action on climate change.

Quite the contrary. Maybe it’s got something to do with our caffeine levels, but we’ve been working double-time on our carbon footprint. We’ve just achieved Carbon Neutrality. And since January this year, have been 1% For The Planet members. You see, Scomo, even though we’re a tiny speck of a business on this earth, we’ve all got to do our bit and make this climate change thing as top of mind as coffee is each morning.

FIXING CLIMATE F*CKERY & ANNOUNCING 1% FOR THE PLANET

We’re roasters not mathematicians but know bad stats when we see them. Like the finding from IUCN Red List of Threatened Species that, due to climate change, at least 60% of coffee species are at risk of disappearing. And, from the 2016 report by The Climate Institute, that coffee production could be cut in half by 2050. Then there’s this - only 3% of philanthropy goes to environmental causes. Of that, only 5% comes from corporations.

Cookie heads up! If we could we’d call ‘em biccies & we’d be dunking ‘em in coffee, but sadly these bad boys are virtual & non-edible.
