How We Work
At coffee.gay, we are passionate about creating delicious, high-quality coffee that supports LGBTQ+ causes and promotes equality and inclusion within the coffee industry. But we don't just want to make great coffee – we want to make a positive impact on the world, too. That's why we are committed to a set of values and principles that guide everything we do, from bean sourcing to roasting and packaging.
Here's a closer look at how our coffee shop and roastery works:
Sustainability and ethics: We are committed to sourcing our beans ethically and sustainably, and to minimizing our environmental impact wherever possible. We work with small-scale farmers who are paid a fair price for their beans, and we use environmentally friendly packaging whenever possible.
Community engagement: We believe that coffee is more than just a drink – it's a way to bring people together and create meaningful connections. That's why we are committed to building and supporting communities, both within the coffee industry and beyond. Whether it's through our support of LGBTQ+ causes or our partnerships with local organizations, we believe that coffee has the power to make a difference.
Quality and craftsmanship: We are coffee enthusiasts at heart, and we are committed to creating the best-tasting coffee possible. From selecting the highest-quality beans to roasting and packaging them with care, we take pride in every step of the process.
We hope that this gives you a better understanding of how we work at coffee.gay. If you have any questions or want to know more, please don't hesitate to reach out – we'd love to hear from you!
Source and Curate
We curate some of the best coffees in the world. Our proprietary Pride Blend is part Honduran, part Ethiopian, really smooth and wonderfully flavorful. We source our beans from small producers across the globe, who practice sustainable farming methods and fair trade practices.
Roast Fresh and Deliver
Each order is roasted fresh. Our default is a beautiful medium, which brings out the best in our beans. We can grind it up, or leave the beans whole. It's up to you. Once that's done we carefully package it up, give it to our runners, and it's on the way to you.
Subscribe and Empower
You can buy once-off or else choose to join to our subscription service and we will send you freshly roasted coffee every month. For each bag ordered we donate $1 to CEJIL, a 30 year old, America's-based non profit. Their mission is a single-minded commitment to fighting cases of human rights abuse in all communities including the one closest to our hearts; LGBTQ+.
