Throughout this last year of working from home during the pandemic, I’ve learned to cope with home-brewed coffee. Don’t get it twisted, on days that I’ve really needed a caffeinated kick I’d make a commute. But for the most part, it’s been the k-coffee life for me at home. Like many, I’ve increased my conscious effort to buy black and support women-owned businesses and with Ezra Coffee Company, I’m doing both – while upgrading my morning caffeine routine.
Ezra Coffee Company believes in the importance of education, ethically-sourced beans and service. Ezra in Hebrew means “he who helps” and strives to be of service to others. Whether it’s through the sharing and re-telling of history or advocating on behalf of diverse and marginalized communities, their mission extends beyond coffee and plan to unveil their community initiatives soon.
