A lot has been going on since my last post in February. Everyone’s routine has changed as we all work through this new normal. Like so many others I needed to take a few weeks to focus on other things. As we all look to a brighter future I am continuing to explore ways we can lift each other up and support our great local businesses in the Triangle that are navigating through these challenging times.
One thing I have been doing to support some of my favorite spots is buying local coffee. Most if not all of the local coffee shops in the area remain open offering to-go orders that can be conveniently ordered online for curb-side pickup. Many also roast their own coffee and selling their retail bags is a great way for them to generate revenue to continue paying their staff.
Durham’s own Cocoa Cinnamon is a great example of this approach. Their in-house coffee roasting business is called Little Waves Coffee and it supplies all of the coffee served at their three shops. You can buy their beans at the shop (curb-side pickup) as well as online and they recently announced the launch of their coffee subscription service with different coffee options to suit your tastes and delivery options from once a month to every two weeks.
Signing up for the Little Waves Coffee Subscription service is an easy way to make a major impact on the long-terms sustainability of their business and in the short-term it will go a long way to ensuring they can continue to pay their staff a living wage during the pandemic.
