March 18, 2019 3:58 pm
A newly opened cafe in Suva’s Central Business District will donate its coffee sales from today to families and victims of the Christchurch massacre.
Weta Coffee (Fiji) at Mobil Go-To station in Victoria Parade opened last week drawing hundreds of customers to their drinks and quick grab-and-go bites.
Director Mue Bentley Fisher says they’re giving back to society within the first week of their business.
She says they have dedicated today to the grieving families and victims of the Christchurch tragedy.
“Fiji and New Zealand always have a close connection whether it be with people or business, trade and so forth. We needed to do something so we announced this morning that all our coffee sales today will be tallied and donated to the families of the victims.”
Nestled inside Mobil service station, Coffee isn’t the only favorite, like hot chocolate, waffles and other quick-and-easy bites are hot on their menu.
Director Darren Fisher says the local franchise has attracted many coffee lovers and plans are in place to expand the business.
“The second site will be up on Selbourne Street and it will be a lot bigger and it will have a full cafe with a wine shop and Airbnb suites.”
The Grab-and-Go cafe uses plant-based biodegradable and compostable takeaway packaging made from abundant, rapidly renewable resources such as corn and bamboo.
Weta Coffee which originated from New Zealand sources 100% premium Arabica beans from sustainable and ethical plantations around the world where the farmers take real pride in producing an exceptional crop.
