We make “one cup of happiness” of the consumers’ side through import, processing and sales of coffee and tea. Further, due to agricultural products’ characteristics, we are deeply involved with developing countries and by building long lasting partnership, we contribute to secure the employment and to improve technology at the producers’ side.
