THE CLOCK IS TICKING…
Do you remember my post Your own coffee plantation where I’ve announced a project which sounded for most people unbelievable?
The project develops perfectly and more and more people asked me for detailed information.

At night, thinking deeper about the project I tried to imagine for whom this could be an opportunity, challenge or a pleasure to join this project. I don’t want to hand pick people but they must be committed to the goals and the mission. To be a shareholder means carrying responsibility.

It is obvious that their customers demands rises and rises because the consumer’s demands rises much faster.
