TDP的使命:A-F-R-I-C-A

1) Additional Return公平價格+10
在公平價格以外,另加約10%給農民或其家人,完成他們的夢想,回報社區。

項目一《地區Tella Mande》:乞力馬扎羅其中一條村的農民子弟完夢,提供起動基金開一間建築材料小店,提供就業機會以及建築堅固的房屋,回饋農民社區;
項目二《地區Legeruki》:為農民免費提供咖啡果研碎機,讓農民們減低生產成本;
項目三《地區Weru Weru》是為孤苦無依的小童助學,讓他們改變隔代貧窮的命運。

2) Friendship 農民就是好朋友
我們經常往來非洲,住在當地人家裡。並在非洲設立公司,取得相關牌照;又直接探望供應豆的農民及其社區,了解為我們種豆的「好朋友」生活情況,不容他們被欺壓,成為全球化下的犧牲者。


3) Roasting Lab 本地烘焙
我們直接將咖啡生豆(Green Beans)運回香港自家烘焙,我們專心研究就是為了不辜負每粒豆背後的汗水;我們相信,將烘焙的技術和熱情傳給本地年青人及基層朋友,一起成就TDP的夢想,意義更大。


4) Inspiration and Life Education 啟發及教育
TDP的咖啡豆都是由樂天知命的非洲農民親手種植的。每粒豆都訴說著一個又一個的故事,有的賺人熱淚、有的充滿生活智慧,有的甚至給生活在金錢掛帥的城市的我們一些啟發,甚至一記當頭棒喝。所以我們定期辦「大草地·喝咖啡·聽故事」分享會,令咖啡的香氣釋放生命的意義。


5)Connections 近況分享
將農民及社區的故事帶給香港人,於選用我們咖啡豆的店鋪及不同場地展覽。在這些支持TDP的咖啡店,你會見到我們定時從非洲發回來的照片和農民的近況,在非洲實現夢想的畫面。也可以跟店員「把啡談夢」。我們用行動藉咖啡豆將香港人與非洲農民結連起來。


6) Assessment and Monitoring 可靠生產線
為什麼我們堅持在非洲設立公司,持當地相關牌照,而非簡單海外入口?就是因為我們要為農民和支持TDP的人把關,做直接的當地監察工作。我們也會跟信得過的合作社及機構合作,不容我們的豆有任何欺壓農民的成份:TDP咖啡豆,可以有汗,不能有血!這是一般海外貿易難以做到的,但我們會堅持!

We set up a company in Tanzania, obtained licenses. We won't allow our friends being exploited, and become the victims of globalization.

3. Roasting Lab
We export coffee green beans to Hong Kong and roast them with local formulas. We have done extensive amount of work in how to process the beans in order to fully utilize the best in them. We believe by passing on the roasting technique and its passion to local young generation and local friends rooted in Hong Kong, we fulfill more dreams, Together, We achieve greater.

4. Inspiration and Life Education
All TDP coffee beans are cultivated by our optimistic, contented African farmers. There are stories behind each bean, some earn tears, some full of life wisdom, and some even gives people like us who have always been in this materialistic metropolitan a wake up call. That’s why we decided to host grassland sharing events from time to time, let's share coffee in the air and also the meaning of life.

5. Connections
We would like to share the stories of the farmers further to more Hong Kong people. From the coffee shops which choose to use TDP beans to varies exhibit venues. You will see photos, videos and stories of our African friends striving for their dreams, which will be updated by our team that travel to Africa regularly. Share your stories and dreams to your barista at the same time in return, coffee connects people.

6. Assessment and Monitoring
We insist on setting up a company in Africa, earning a local license rather than just simply import the beans because we have to Monitor.
Monitor for the farmers and those who supports TDP, we stress on local supervise and work with trustworthy cooperatives and organizations as well. We do not allow any single bean and those who nurture them being exploited. TDP Coffee Bean is from farmers who sweat but not bleed.
It is a challenging battle in international coffee trade, but we will persist!
