The COVID-19 pandemic has radically changed our entire world this past month and for the unforeseeable future. The news is using new words like social-distancing, self-isolation, and people are wearing gloves and masks to go grocery shopping, and being what is really getting to individuals is being divided from our family and friends seems like the new normal.
These days more and more local and independent coffee roasters and cafes are closing their doors and being effected by the new normal of the COVID-19 pandemic. It is our duty to continue to help these local and independent coffee roasters and cafes in any way that we can, whether that be to order some coffee online and have it shipped to your home or using their curbside delivery service. Any little bit helps these amazing coffee shops.
We have been supporting local independent for the last four years and we know the support that is needed to keep these amazing companies afloat. Many of the amazing roasters we have met these last few years have been located in small towns that we have visited. Even those in the big cities still need the help because they are being effected more than ever with companies closing and the roasters and cafes are losing all of their best business. It is a crucial time and we really need to support those that are near and dear to us.
In this new normal we need to be supporting the small, local and independent businesses in the city and surrounding area. If we don’t they may not survive and we could see our favourite cafes closing down permanently.
Since we support local and independent coffee shops and cafes we wanted to make sure that you had some options that if you wanted to help them, you can find all the information here. Even if you head to their website and purchase some coffee, buy some of their merch, or even support by stopping by and using their curbside delivery. Anything you can do will help and make a difference in their eyes.
