Coffee with love from Vermont

Coffee.gay is a coffee roasting and online subscription business. We hail from the shores of beautiful Lake Champlain in Burlington, Vermont. Vermont is a state that celebrates inclusivity, deeply respects the rights of individuals and is a champion in matters pertaining to the LGBTQ+ community 

The owner of coffee.gay, Richard Vaughn is no stranger to highlighting social issues in his business ventures. His other coffee business, Perky Planet & Social Revolution employs people with various learning and physical disabilities. These individuals are given an opportunity at a fairly remunerated, real job, which makes a profound difference in their lives.

At coffee.gay our mission is to raise awareness around the injustices suffered by marginalised people in the coffee producing countries of the world. People in LGBTQ+ communities are especially vulnerable in countries like El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras. We feel a duty to bring attention to these injustices and do our small part in helping the cause.


A word about our .gay domain

We are extremely proud of our .gay top level domain name. We stand in support of their vision of making .gay domains a place free of hatred and bigotry and instead ones of love and inclusivity. For every domain registered they make a generous donation to causes in alignment with their principles. For more information click on the .gay logo in our footer or the button below. And please spread the word.


While it is similar, on a technical level, to traditional top-level domains like .com or .net, the .gay domain is unique because it opens up a completely new namespace for LGBTQ people to connect online.

With donations that support LGBTQ+ communities and policies that prohibit hate, the .gay namespace is taking a groundbreaking approach to making the internet a safer and more welcoming place.
