Con­scious Con­sumer Café of the Month

Café Mi­mosa, Taka­puna

Con­scious Con­sumers is about pro­mot­ing bet­ter busi­ness & help­ing con­sumers make bet­ter pur­chas­ing de­ci­sions. Cafés dis­play badges - think of them as scout badges for cafés - in the win­dow that let ‘con­scious’ con­sumers know at a glance what prac­tices the cafe com­mits to. Lead­ing the charge for Con­scious Con­sumers on the North Shore, Café Mi­mosa in Taka­puna signed up as a Con­scious Con­sumers café three months ago with seven out of nine pos­si­ble badges and owner Mayumi Abe says the decision to be in­volved with the project was an easy one. Hav­ing made the choice ten years ago to eat only or­ganic and free range “happy” food and see­ing an im­prove­ment in her health Mayumi wanted to of­fer café-go­ers in Taka­puna the same ex­pe­ri­ence when eat­ing out. True to form Café Mi­mosa of­fers cus­tomers the type of food that Mayumi loves to eat her­self, in­clud­ing a menu that fea­tures sea­sonal and or­ganic pro­duce and free range eggs as well as cof­fee that is made with fair trade beans and or­ganic milk. Mayumi en­cour­ages cus­tomers to BYO Keep Cup for take­away cof­fees and the café also re­cy­cles ev­ery­thing pos­si­ble and uses only eco-friendly clean­ers. A recipe for happy cus­tomers!
