Samuel Te Kani
March 16, 8:00am - 9:00am NZDT. Hosted at Samoa House
part of a series on Courage
About the speaker
Courage has no specific form and knows no bounds. From starting a side project to the act of listening when you would rather interject, every day we are wrapped in opportunities to exercise courage.
Courage has nothing to do with your title or level of expertise. It’s not for the few or the gifted. It’s an act of humanity, of choosing to take an action that is risky because it demands vulnerability and curiosity.
Our speaker this month, Samuel Te Kani is a courageous and generous soul. His art pushes boundaries and disrupts the world around him.
Samuel is politically minded and opinionated, and a firm believer in social justice. The best way to understand him is to kick back with a coffee or mimosa, and just listen. You will find Samuel hanging out around K’Road eating fried chicken, drinking Rosè, nose-deep in a novel that challenges the very fabric of what we call society.
We need your courage. It’s going to be risky and will require vulnerability. A posture of empathy and curiosity will empower you. And above all, you must take action.
Samuel has chosen Rainbow Youth as our charitable partner for March. We believe this awesome organisation aligns strongly with the theme Courage. Please feel free to bring along a gold coin donation to contribute to Rainbow Youth on the 16th.
We are very excited to also annouce that In true Sam Te Kani style, breakfast will be Mimosa’s and fried chicken (we will also be providing vege/vegan/gluten free goodies) + non alcoholic beverages.
It’s tempting to get caught up in the latest and greatest, but we try to remember who we are doing this for and what it is we do best: roasting delicious coffee and creating meaningful coffee experiences for folks who simply love coffee. We roast coffee for our amazing customers; be they café owners or enthusiastic home brewers - coffee drinkers! And luckily, we still get to drink it too. At the heart of Supreme is people, and the way coffee connects us. Perhaps our core product is not, in fact, coffee, but instead, what happens over a coffee shared - generous hospitality.

Simply translated, it means: Follow your desires with truth and clarity.
