Coffee for supporting to Kumamoto & Oita


The end of April, the earthquake happened at Kumamoto and my home town Oita. Fortunately my place was not so damaged. However the earthquake continued for a week. Every 2 or 3 hours the warning alarm about the next earthquake rang from phone, tv and radio, even at midnight and many people in there were exhausted with anxiety all day.

At that time, my co-worker in the company that I worked together before, he started to give away free freshly roasted coffee to the people with anxiety for relaxing and also sell this coffee for donation. So I bought it when I came back to my home town.

He is a coffee lover, graphic designer, father of a boy and roasting coffee by himself.


Today, I made walnut and dark chocolate cookies.


Then I made coffee carefully than usual. It gave me a great time for relaxing. In these days, the earthquake happened in Ecuador and also other places in the world. I hope for a rapid recovery for both the people and areas affected.


4月に熊本や大分で地震があった時に、私はドイツに居て、ただただ更新されるニュースを確認することしかできず、不安と焦りの気持ちで家族や友人に連絡を取りました。 ちょうどその頃に、以前 地元・大分で働いていた時の会社の先輩が、自分が焙煎したコーヒーを同じく不安で疲れた人に無償で郵送することを始めました。同時に、焙煎したコーヒーを希望者に販売し、全額を寄付する活動も始めました。 夜中に地震警報が鳴って眠れない…という話を友人から聞いていた私は、一杯の暖かく美味しいコーヒーがその人の不安な心を安らげてくれるといいな と先輩の活動に、微力ながら賛同をさせていただきました。


先輩ひとりで、仕事の合間にこつこつと活動を続けています。 気持ちが入れ替わるような、後味が気持ちいいコーヒーで、胡桃ダークチョコ・クッキーと一緒に美味しくいただきました♪
