We often say great things happen over a cup of coffee. Sometimes it’s about connecting with a friend or colleague and creating space for conversations about mental health and wellbeing. That’s why it felt right to partner with the Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand.

Coffee brings people together, that’s one of our favourite things about it — it’s social. The simple act of asking someone to catch up and kōrero over a coffee could be all it takes to help them. Coffee is very ritualistic and can help form the basis of routine check-ins with the people in our lives. We’re thrilled to support the Mental Health Foundation’s ongoing great work, whether it be fundraising, encouraging conversations about mental health, and of course, taking care of their office coffee. 

Next week (27th - 3rd October), we’ll be celebrating Mental Health Awareness Week, and we’ve got the perfect new coffee to help prompt that conversation with the people nearest to you. 100% of the proceeds of this coffee (Nicaragua, La Huella) will be donated to the Mental Health Foundation. This year’s theme is Take Time to Kōrero, Mā te kōrero, ka ora, and we couldn’t think of a better way to connect with someone than over a cuppa.

Each year, the MHF launches a challenge each day during Mental Health Awareness Week. We’re encouraging our team to get involved and we would love to see you do the same. Keep an eye on our Instagram stories to see what each day entails.

If your coffee supplies are ample and it’s not quite time for a top up but you’d like to make a donation, you can do so directly through our Coffee Supreme page here.

Take time to Kōrero. A little chat can go a long way.
