The fabulous people at Coffee Supreme have been very busy roasting great coffee and raising funds for our Holiday programme at the same time. They’ve been so successful they’ve finished the Panama coffee and are now selling a new brew called Kenya Eaagads Peaberry.
Once again, all proceeds go towards our Holiday Programme for children with autism in Wellington. Here is the link – http://www.coffeesupremeshop.com/collections/coffee/products/kenya-eaagads-peaberry
The trust is a charitable organisation that provides support to children with autism and their families. The Trust has been set up by parents with first-hand experience of the issues facing children with autism. Though well-organised and diligent, the Trust must routinely work hard to secure funding to help all the families in their network. The sale of the coffee is an initiative by Coffee Supreme Roaster Justin McArthur to create a sustainable funding stream for the Trust over the coming years.
Eaagads Estate lies in the centre of the Thika district, about 30km north of Nairobi. The farm covers 149 hectares of prime coffee land. All coffee at Eaagads is traditionally wet processed with fermentation tanks and is 100% sun dried. The peaberries are hand sorted from the main crop and carry an extra vibrancy due to their density.
Coffee Supreme Ltd
An independent specialty coffee roaster supplying cafes all across New Zealand and Australia. Coffee Supreme celebrates its 20th birthday in 2013 and is still wholly owned by its founders Maggie Wells and Chris Dillon. In the past 2 decades Coffee Supreme has established itself as one of the pre-eminent specialty coffee roasters in Australasia with it’s high quality café blends, full service support, and it’s premium coffee selection for the home market.
Coffee Supreme consciously does not sell its coffee in supermarkets as it seeks to have the highest quality control measures in the industry. Coffee Supreme is famous for its Supreme Blend, a delicious espresso coffee sold in discerning cafes, and was the first New Zealand roasting company to have a female roaster, Maggie Wells. In 2012 Coffee Supreme introduced the first virtual Coffee Specialists, Mr. Woodward, what is believed to be a world first.
Autism Intervention Trust
The Autism Intervention Trust is run by parents and supports children with autism and their families in the Wellington region. Their mission is to support families affected by autism in practical and positive ways.
Members of the Trust have first hand experience of autism and what it’s like to support someone with autism. All have seen the value of effective early intervention and the difference it can make to the long-term quality of life for children and their families. The Trust warmly invites other parents and family members to join them.
The Trust was formed in 2004 by a group of Wellington parents all doing Applied Behavioural Analysis (ABA) therapy with their children. “For the last 7 years we have secured funding to support early intervention therapies and the Trust’s holiday programmes” says Paul Kane, Activities Co-ordinator for the Trust, “Coffee Supreme’s ongoing support has been, and will be, invaluable in ensuring we can continue”.
