Behind a good damn bean is a good concept that makes coffee both accessible and delicious.
Who would’ve thought that an Ethiopian farmer would discover a bean that would change the world of beverages as we know it. Well, it did. Now drink up at some of Ark Republic’s favorite and past-featured coffee companies or purveyors of java.
When my husband cleared out the bag of Ethiopian beans from the Black Coffee Company in their “woke” themed mug, we knew they would bang hard with this venture. Since I interviewed the five-man owned business, they showed how growing pains can be good. Recently, Brandon, Jamin, Leonard, Chris and Gino transitioned from a solely online shop to opening a brick-and-mortar in Atlanta during the pandemic.
Other wonderful components of the Black Coffee Company are the long list of financial workshops, virtual pop ups, tastings and HBCU philanthropic efforts that pair with all of the owners being just really incredible people.
