The city of Kolkata, in the Eastern part of India, is often called the City of Joy. It is also the Tea Capital of India, and all the tea trading for its 1.5 billion tea-drinking population happens out of this city. So it is rare for a coffee story to come out of the heart of the Tea Capital of India.

Personally, it has been very hard to be patient. I have learned and understood that only through hardship, spiritual growth, and patience can obstacles and difficulties be overcome. Without patience it is easy to fall into the abyss of anxiety, which generates more worries, stress, a chain of illnesses, and - in many cases - even accelerated death.
