How do You Drink Your Coffee?

No Fair Trade Label, No Sale!

Just a small cup of coffee can make the world a better place – or condemn it to total annihilation. It may sound radical, but this is a daily reality for those most conscious among coffee drinkers: the so-called ‘eco queens’.

Always awake

We all know, love and fear them – those people who are almost unbearable when they haven’t had their coffee. These so-called caffeine junkies have but one rule: coffee first. The world second.

Searching for that laid-back feeling

“No worries, mate.” This classic Australian phrase not only evokes scenes from old teen films – these are words that Australians truly live by. Putting worries aside and taking life as it comes: Could this laid-back attitude be the magic ingredient, making Australians one of the happiest people in the world?

East or west? No matter!
