RELEASE FROM SLAVERY; SET FREE.

EVERY 30 SECONDS SOMEONE BECOMES A SLAVE.

Manumit offers dignity & hope to survivors of modern slavery through training & employment. Our coffee is roasted by men and women who have suffered horrendous exploitation at the hands of traffickers and modern slave traders but are now rebuilding their lives.

At our Cardiff-based Roastery we produce excellent coffee that combats modern slavery on 3 levels:
• Sourcing specialty coffee beans from ethical, slavery free suppliers.
• Training and employing survivors of modern slavery as coffeeroasters.
• Investing all profits in local and international anti-slavery projects.

Together we are providing #FreedomThroughCoffee.

EVA GREW UP IN ONE OF EUROPE’S BALTIC STATES.

Eva was brought to the UK having been promised work as a nanny. When she arrived in the UK she soon discovered that this was not the case and was sold to a man who forced her to work in the sex industry.

Eva was regularly beaten & sexualy assualted by her captors and was also made to take a number of different drugs & stimulants to keep her awake as she worked in forced prostitution. She eventually got away from her trafficker, and with the help of numerous partners & support agencies, is now in the process of rebuilding her life.

Despite ongoing struggles with fear & anxiety, Eva is determined to put the horrors of her past behind her & move forward with hope & optimism. She dreams of one day working as a cleaner.

Eva has been roasting coffee with Manumit since June 2017.

MARTIN GREW UP IN A CARE HOME IN EASTERN EUROPE.

Martin was abandoned by his mother as a baby. As a teenager he met someone who promised him a better life in the UK & even paid for his ticket.

Upon arriving in the UK his ID was taken from him & he was forced to work 70+ hours per week in a factory, for which he received no payment. Each evening he was locked in a cellar with nothing but a mattress to sleep on. He was regularly assaulted and sexually abused & was only fed substandard food that made him feel sick.

Martin lived this way for 5 years until he was eventually rescued. He is now living in South Wales & seeking to get his life back on track. Martin hopes one day to work as a hospital porter.

Martin has been roasting coffee with Manumit since June 2017.
