Established in 2001, Kōkako began as a coffee cart situation and is now a fully-fledged organic roastery business enriching lives of New Zealanders on the daily. 

Fervently fairtrade- and BioGro-certified, they’re a company that truly cares about people and community. And so, upon brainstorming a concept to help raise funds for the Breast Cancer Foundation, they reached out to Artemis Ceramics.

Ceramicist Georgia Casey entered the picture and the two companies teamed up to produce a limited-edition series of handmade coffee cups. Entitled ‘Mastectomy Mugs’ the 10-strong collection tell the breast cancer journey in the form of breasts modelled off women who have endured the surgical procedure.

If you fancy supporting a very worthy cause and nabbing yourself a one-off mug with the same stone, head to TradeMe to bid.
