Passion for coffee matched by a passion for the planet.
Respire a unique eco-friendly addition to Riyadh’s coffee scene, a solar-powered lounge at Al Rabi district where you’ll find great quality coffee alongside a simplified menu of pastries, and light snacks, a minimalistic yet trendy and welcoming atmosphere.
The concept behind Respire’s green approach is to harness solar-powered processing to join the sustainability movement and integrate some unique environment-friendly technologies. The cafe has joined forces with Naqaa Solutions that specializes in sustainable architecture; a reliable innovative and leading sustainability enabler for delivering Kingdom’s Vision 2030.
Founded in Jeddah almost ten years ago, Naqaa Solutions has been assisting advising companies in Saudi Arabia to design, plan, and implement innovative sustainable models and target goals in addition to taking part in community engagement campaigns, deliver workshops and organize online awareness campaigns. The environment-friendly technologies at Respire also include free electric car charging stations and the first of its kind Reverse Vending Machine (RVM). The best part about this is customers being rewarded with free coffee for using both facilities as a means of promoting and encouraging the sustainability culture.
The cafe also looks forward to offering similar concepts and welcoming any local businesses that offer similar practices or services to clients – not only to spread awareness but to inspire like-minded people who aspire to accomplish their passion.
