Hampton Coffee Company is the first business on the East End to upgrade its septic system to a new nitrogen-reducing Innovative and Alternative Onsite Wastewater Treatment Systems. The company made the upgrade at its 24-year-old flagship location on Montauk Highway in Water Mill with the help of a grant being offered by the Town of Southampton and a loan from BNB Bank.
“All of us at Hampton Coffee live in this community, so the environment around us is not only important to us as a company, but personally as well,” said company co-owner Jason Belkin. “We already made the switch to paper straws in response to our staff and guests’ concerns and we’ve been recycling for years. This is amazing that now we are turning our wastewater into basically the quality of water that comes from your backyard hose. We’re really proud to be making this difference.”
All Hampton Coffee Company cafés are Green Cafés, with LED lighting, recycling programs, oil recycling, compostable java jackets, and more. The Water Mill café even features solar panels with a monitor inside the café so guests can see a demonstration of the electric being made in real time.
