We think it's important to us to give back, to support the community that supports us. So a portion of the proceeds from each zine purchase will be donated to charities that are advocating for and supporting, you guessed it, coffee people!
Issue 05 features Dirt, a coffee shop in Littleton, Colorado that employs folx on the autism spectrum to give them training job skills so they can live fulfilled lives.
Issue 04 supported #shestheroaster, an organization dedicated to furthering womxn in the field of coffee roasting through education, scholarships, and community building.
Issue 03's donations will go to Cherry Roast, a female/femme/trans/gender-non-conforming coffee competition held every November in Denver. Check them out on instagram @cherryroast_denver.
For Issue 02, we donated to Prodigy Coffee in Denver, Colorado.
Below is the Prodigy feature in Issue 02 of Coffee People Zine, pgs 10-13.
Issue 01 proceeds were donated to the #coffeetoo movement - dedicated to fighting discrimination and harassment in the coffee industry.
