Let’s get to work!

 

New Year. New resolutions. And plenty of challenges. In 2022 things won’t stay the same. 2022 is about change – at least that’s what we deeply hope. And that is why the first topic we want to focus on in our theme year is courage. The courage to drive change, to change things for the better. For yourself. For all of us.

We want to inspire you. With reportages about people who had the courage to turn their life upside down. With ideas on how to reduce waste, that aren’t even that hard to integrate into your everyday life. With great initiatives that we want to promote together with you. And of course, with stories about coffees. With this, we are brewing ourselves a delicious cup of coffee and then: Let’s get to work!
