Where did we come from and where are we going?
Here is a poem to illuminate and inspire.
In faraway places, they are watching the coffee plants grow.
They water, they weed, and they wonder, ‘where will this coffee go?’
Fair working day done, they send the coffee beans over the sea
Wondering, ‘how much happier could we be?
‘The world is finally good, Goddamn it’s been a long time...
To get rid of the poison, the unfairness, the grime’
On this side of the sea, it’s another ‘can’t beat Wellington day’. Our roaster springs out of bed with one thing to say: ’Super’, he says. Then, ‘whoopee’, with glee. ‘Let’s crack into the day, my name is Jesse’.
Another coffee roast done, packed and loaded onto our truck.
Enjoy your cup.
Follow your luck.
IT TAKES A LOT OF HANDS FROM A LOT OF PLACES AND A LOT OF GOOD FORTUNE TO ROAST GOOD COFFEE.
Here at the home of the Good Fortune Coffee Company we take pride in looking after these many hands, beginning with the humble farmers, coffee pickers and bean sorters we ensure that all our coffee we roast and all the farmers and co-ops involved receive a fair deal for their work and we will only roast 100% certified fair trade coffee. The many hands involved in selecting our finest beans also farm organically, these fair trade organic beans begin their journey in all corners of the world ready to be shipped to the people at good fortune eagerly awaiting their arrival. With all this hard work now heading our way and our head roaster pushing his laden sack barrow towards the roaster its now our turn to do our bit…. Roasting, Blending, Grinding, Packing. We want happy workers to produce fantastic coffee and our living wage commitment completes the package. Take care of our beans because so much care has been taken to deliver these beans to you.
Feel good, Feel Great! You are supporting a very caring coffee company.
