In today’s episode of Coffee Break, I am sitting down with the legend that is Paul Fletcher. He is one of the GMs of Common Good Coffee here in New Zealand. Common Good Coffee (CGC) has a special place in my heart and they won that place last year in August when Paul reached out to me over Instagram and shared some kind words with me about The Drumming Barista and my content at the time. He also asked if I would like to receive a couple of bags of coffee from CGC and of course, I said yes and the rest is history.
I invited Paul to sit down with me and talk about Common Good Coffee, the journey they have been on as a company past, present and current and to also speak about Joyya.
The following text is cut from the Joyya Website, which I highly recommend visiting and learning about Joyya.
”We manufacture high-quality bags and apparel for all your promotional, packaging, and decorator needs. But that is just the beginning!
We were founded through the merger of three companies that knew they would be better together. They originally started back in 2001 in Kolkata, India, with one ambitious goal: to spark opportunity where little is found until we see an end to the horrors of extreme poverty and human trafficking. This is the beginning of our new journey together”.
Sounds like an incredible story right and it is. During this episode, Paul talks about the ties between Common Good Coffee and Joyya and briefly shares with us stories from what is happening in Kolkata, India.
Anyhow. I won’t give away any more content from this episode, otherwise, you won’t want to listen to it haha. As always, I hope you enjoy today’s episode. I love hearing from you the listeners of the Home Barista Podcast about the current and past episodes as it helps me know what you are and aren’t enjoying and helps me know what new content to bring forward for you guys.

Thank you for the kind words my bro. It was a fantastic conversation with Paul around Common Good Coffee. I left that conversation feeling so inspired, encouraged and motivated to do more for those communities overseas and also to keep supporting CGC and their cafes as much as I can. I agree, there decaf and espresso blends are fantastic. 😎
Such a great episode! I really loved hearing about the kaupapa of Common Good Coffee and what they're up to. I total get their comment about 'because its a social enterprise the product will be shite' - and to be honest, I thought that too. I've had a few of their coffees now and they're solid as. Their decafe and espresso blends, as pulled by the experts at Trade School Kitchen in Lower Hutt, are next freaking level. Good stuff g!
