It’s National Coffee Day!
It’s time to pour, blend, and enjoy up your favorite cup of coffee. Whether you like dark roasts. iced coffee or lattes, we encourage you to learn about and support Black-owned coffee businesses. On this National Coffee Day instead of hitting up the major coffee shop, check out a local Black coffee shop or check out an online Black coffee retailer. With our Black businesses continuously needing our support, we have compiled a list of three Black-owned coffee shops and companies across the country.
Here are five Black-owned coffee brands that you can support as you get your brew on today.
