#DisabilityEmployment #disabilityrights #thebestcoffeeofalliscoffeeforall #filtercoffeenotpeopleA little about our lovely coffee suppliers, The Lucy Foundation. The Lucy Foundation are a disability empowerment organisation which manages an entire supply chain of coffee that is inclusive of people with disabilities from Mexico to Aotearoa.

Lovingly roasted by Able Coffee Collaborative, a disability inclusive roastery in Lower Hutt, we serve their signature Lucy blend. This includes three types of beans from Sumatra (Fair Trade/Organic), Ethiopia (Fair Trade/Organic) and Pluma Hidalgo Mexico. It makes for a full bodied coffee with a bit of kick!

We're proud to be partnering with these organisations to bring you your disability inclusive coffee, all the way from the farm to the friendly face serving you at Te Tuhi Café!
