Save the world: Partner with a less fortunate country.
If you visit my church, the Mt Albert Baptist Church for the first time, you are served a cup of Barista brew coffee.
If you continue to come, you are served with a plungered made coffee.
If you like the plungered made coffee, you can buy a packet of coffee powder.
They are made from La Mai coffee grown in Thailand.
This is part of my church's ministry to help Thailand.
This coffee service was started by Dion Knill. On duty today were Christelle, Tolia, Chris and Donavin. They are also involved with the Global shop which sells products made in Thailand.
Through providing loans for the villages to purchase coffee plants, the villages can begin producing a good income that returns back into the development of their own homes and village. This coffee is where we get our La Mai coffee from.
La Mai coffee is very high quality arabica coffee from the highlands of Thailand, and is custom-roasted in small batches by expert coffee roasters Coffee Worx, based in Christchurch.
LA MAI COFFEE: THE WORLD'S BEST TASTING ACT OF KINDNESS
The Process of Producing La Mai Coffee
Watch the video and see for yourself how drinking La Mai coffee makes a difference:
Order La Mai Coffee
Imagine you’re a young girl born in northern Thailand.
You’ve been sold by your parents to to pay off a debt they incurred to loan sharks. Fearful and alone, you've been sent to work in the prostitution trade in Bangkok. Ahead of you is a life of misery and degradation. There is no way out. No hope.
But Bright Hope World is doing something to help these children. And when you drink La Mai coffee, so are you.
We pay our growers well above fair trade prices
We're not for profit and we don't pay ourselves wages
Coffee profits go into rescuing Thai girls from prostitution
So enjoy the coffee, and know you’re now part of a story with a happy ending. And please put the word around – the coffee’s great but the story is even better. http://www.brighthopeworld.com/
