The Idea of Fu Coffee


by Eric

Coffee has its firm place in our daily lives. Whatever our preference, a Double Shot Caramel Latte, a Cappuccino, a Cafe Creme, an Espresso or an Americano, it makes us feel better when we are stressed, or tired, or lonely and it helps us through a long day at work or studying. Holding a warm cup and smelling the aroma makes meetings more productive and hanging out with friends more enjoyable. A good cup of coffee is a blessing.

What if we could bless someone else, someone less fortunate, whenever we have our cup of coffee? This question sparked the idea of Fu Coffee. 福 [fú] is Chinese for ‘blessing’. Everything at Fu Coffee revolves around blessing someone who is left out, who needs help, who is lonely or hurt.

One cup of coffee seems a small thing, but when 150,000 people like you and me drink that one cup of Fu Coffee each day in a year, then 100 orphaned, homeless and handicapped people without a perspective for their lives can have a meaningful job in a caring environment at Fu Coffee, and there will be RMB 10,000,000 left after all costs and taxes to give to people who need help.

When you have a cup of Fu Coffee, you improve the lives of poor coffee farming communities, who can build wells, schools and better homes for their families; you enable loving people at Home Sweet Home to care for orphaned and handicapped people without a home and release them into dignified, meaningful and independent lives; you restore the lives of young, exploited women who were rescued and given a new perspective by caring people at Eden.

Make Fu Coffe your idea and spread the word.
