Coffee in Solidarity
We've completely sold out of all 50 bags of Solidarity, a special coffee put together by our production roaster and supervisor Lisette Barbera. Thanks to our amazing community of coffee lovers, we'll be donating 100% of its sales to Black Lives Matter Phoenix Metro. Read more about Lisette on azcentral.
For the entire month of June, we'll be donating 5% of all sales (not just profits) to both Black Lives Matter Phoenix Metro and The Loveland Foundation, who are committed to helping women and girls of color.
It's far from over
There's a lot more work to be done, and it is our responsibility to actively seek education. The resources to learn are out there; these are a few of the references we've been following, as well as some of the reading we've started with. We aren't stopping with these resources, and you shouldn't either. Continue to seek out information and education. Most importantly of all: listen.
