Coffee Supreme rallies behind the Autism Intervention Trust

Coffee Supreme rallies behind the Autism Intervention Trust with all proceeds going to help fund a unique Holiday programme for children with autism in Wellington.

On Valentines Day, February 14th 2013, independent specialty coffee roaster Coffee Supreme will release a new Estate coffee from Panama with all sale proceeds going to support activities of the Autism Invention Trust in Wellington.

The sales of the coffee – called Panama Finca Candela – will specifically go to support holiday programmes for the children of the Trust in the Wellington region.

The trust is a charitable organisation that provides support to children with autism and their families. The Trust has been set up by parents with first-hand experience of the issues facing children with autism. Though well-organised and diligent, the Trust must routinely work to secure funding to help all the families in their network. The sale of the coffee is an initiative by Coffee Supreme Roaster Justin McArthur to create a sustainable funding stream for the Trust over the coming years.

Panama Finca Candela is sourced from the coffee grower Finca Candela, a small family run farm in the Volcan region to the west of Panama, near the border with Costa Rica. This is excellent coffee territory, with volcanic soils and a fortunate combination of climate and altitude. This is a sweet coffee suited to both espresso and plunger with flavour notes of caramel, hazelnut, and toasted grains. The coffee was cropped in 2012 season.

In the past 2 decades Coffee Supreme has established itself as one of the preeminent specialty coffee roasters in Australasia with it’s high quality café blends, full service support, and it’s premium coffee selection for the home market.

In 2012 Coffee Supreme introduced the first virtual Coffee Specialists, Mr.

Autism Intervention Trust

The Autism Intervention Trust is run by parents and supports children with autism and their families in the Wellington region. Their mission is to support families affected autism in practical and positive ways.

Members of the trust have firsthand experience of autism and what it’s like to care for someone with autism. All have seen the value of effective early intervention and the difference it can make to the long-term quality of life for children and their families. The Trust warmly invites other parents and family members to join them.

The Trust was formed in 2004 by a group of Wellington parents all doing Applied Behavioural Analysis (ABA) therapy with their children. For the last 5 years we have secured funding to support early intervention therapies. The Trust’s holiday programme, unique in Wellington, is now in its 4th year.
