Good fortune coffee

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.
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.
