Aroma of Coffee and Love for Animals
Coffee Bunnies is a social enterprise (SE) with coffee as its main business. The Neighbourhood Advice-Action Council hopes to create an SE that can encourage young people to find their dreams and develop their strengths. Coffee Bunnies started out as a mobile coffee bike distributing coffee in the district, and later developed into the current physical store.
In this episode, Serena and Cyrus, two young baristas from Coffee Bunnies, act as mentors to teach Alice MAK, Secretary for Home and Youth Affairs, the skills of making latte art and pour-over coffee, and let her experience working as a waitress. Through the participation of Secretary MAK, the audience can understand how the SE helps young people pursue their dreams while operating a coffee shop.
Another guest in this episode is Daniel CHAN, a member of the Hong Kong Para-Badminton Team. The programme paired him with “Animal SE” for a work experience. Animal SE is always concerned about the well-being of elderly animals, and its work includes pet rehabilitation, promotion of the adoption of elderly pets, etc. During the experience, Daniel, a dog lover, tried to help Toast, a disabled cat, with its rehabilitation exercise and urination, and introduced the benefits of adopting elderly pets to elderly people living alone. Daniel said he had been a pet owner for many years, but this experience had given him a new understanding of how to take care of elderly animals.
