Cheeky Devil Coffee Roasters: Supporting Tasmania’s Icon

Jun 25, 2024 | Cheeky Devil Roasters

In the heart of Tasmania’s rugged landscapes and pristine wilderness, the Tasmanian devil (Sarcophilus harrisii) stands as both an icon of the island’s unique biodiversity and a symbol of its conservation challenges. Renowned for its fierce demeanour and nocturnal habits, this marsupial holds the distinction of being the largest carnivorous marsupial globally, playing a crucial role in Tasmania’s intricate ecological balance.

Historically, Tasmanian devils were abundant across the island, contributing significantly as essential scavengers that help maintain ecological health by cleaning up carcasses. However, their population now faces severe threats, including habitat loss, road accidents, and the alarming spread of Devil Facial Tumour Disease (DFTD). This contagious cancer has devastated devil populations, leading to a sharp decline in numbers and placing the species at risk of extinction.

Despite these challenges, Tasmanian devils continue to embody Tasmania’s wild spirit and resilience. Their distinctive vocalisations and powerful jaws set them apart among marsupials, underscoring their integral role in the island’s ecosystem and cultural identity.

Founded with a passion for both exceptional coffee and environmental stewardship, Cheeky Devil Coffee Roasters embodies the spirit of giving back. By donating $1 from every kilogram of coffee sold to the Save the Tasmanian Devil Programme, we not only support crucial conservation efforts but also raise awareness about the plight of this iconic species.

With every sip of our ethically sourced coffee, you contribute to ongoing efforts to research, protect, and conserve Tasmania’s unique wildlife.
