Bad x Aida Wilde • Lousy Coffee • Single Origin

Bad x Aida Wilde • Lousy Coffee • Single Origin


This single-origin Colombian coffee is a super limited edition collaboration between Bad Coffee and Aida Wilde. With every single penny of profit going to charity.


The coffee is a washed process Colombian bean, it’s sweet and clean with notes of apple, hazelnut and milk chocolate. The beans have been packed into bags individually hand screen-printed by visual artist Aida Wilde (known for her work surrounding displacement, education and equality), and is a nod to her "LOUSY" social commentary series that has been subverting advertisements, walls and merchandise for almost a decade.


Bad and Aida are firm believers in the power of collaboration and positive engagement within their vibrant and creative community of Hackney Wick, East London. This project hopes to facilitate encounters that enhance and enrich their locality by supporting two East London charities, Hackney Quest and Mind in the City, Hackney and Waltham Forest.


About the Charites

Hackney Quest 

"Hackney Quest aims to give young people, families and members of the community the practical and emotional support they need to develop and pursue their aspirations and deal positively with life’s challenges."


Hackney Quest values of building communities through positive action. It's a grass routes charity built in Hackney and is committed to this location. We especially admire how Quest work with young people to provide opportunity and find their inner strengths through mentoring programmes and workshops. 


Mind in the City, Hackney and Waltham Forest

"For the last 40 years we have provided advice and support to anyone experiencing poor mental health in our community. Since then, not much has changed. Every year we help around 5,000 people with things like accessing their benefits, finding and keeping a job, and improving their mental health.We believe that nobody should have to face a mental health problem alone"


We chose to work with Mind as mental health is something close to our hearts. We know that some of the biggest battles in life are personal, inner struggles. Mind is a wonderful charity that helps those in a time when mental health support is difficult to come by.


Both charities work to strengthen communities. We are firm believers in the power of community, coming together to make a better place for everyone.


About the Coffee

Giovany Lizcano owns a small farm in Inza, Colombia. There he has around 12000 trees of Tabi, pink bourbon, caturra and castillo - varieties that are renowned in the specialty coffee industry. He produces 6000kg per year, and we have 30kg to roast as part of our limited edition collaboration. Roasted to a medium level, the coffee is sweet and clean with notes of apple, hazelnut and milk chocolate.


Lizcano is part of an association called Asorcafe, set up to help producers not only sell their coffee as specialty, but to provide a framework to further their education and progression to improve the economic and social conditions for themselves, their families and community.
