May Newsletter

Hello Black Coffee Family!

There are three special events we’d like it highlight this month. We’ll send a separate email out highlighting May Day festivities – however, Black Coffee will be closed for May Day as a holiday for the workers.

1. Meet Coffee Farmers!

This Friday, 4/25 will be a rare opportunity to meet the very farmers who grow some of the Kuma-roasted coffee served at Black Coffee. These are individuals representing heirloom farms & cooperatives growing some of the highest quality coffee in the world.

Come at 5:30pm this Friday for an early happy hour & Q&A with these distinguished farmers.

2. Too Much To Celebrate!

Join a benefit for Black Coffee – a celebration of many milestones.

  • Welcome 2 new Worker-Owner
  • The Collective turns 3 Years Old
  • The Cafe turns 1.5 Years Old
  • 501 E Pine “Warn Building” turns 100 years old
  • Belated May Day & Spring Celebration
  • Worker-Owner Scott turns 25


A Fantastical Screening of “The Wizard of OZ” dubbed with Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side of the Moon” dubbed with the Flaming Lips cover of “Dark Side of the Moon”. Woah. On top of that, it will all be illuminated by a laser light show.

3. CHURCH! & Warrior Tour

For the 9th Chapter of your favorite ALL AGES Hip Hop monthly every second Sunday at Black Coffee Coop, we are more than exited to announce the WARRIOR HIP HOP WEST COAST TOUR TAKEOVER!

Pay attention to the details below because we are switching up our format and extending our hours to accommodate this powerful event.

These are not just artists, but organizers, community builders, and true practitioners of indigenous resistance, self-determination, and decolonization, so please spread the word and come early to get down in connecting the dots and making a movement:

Talking Cypher/Building Session/Meet & Greets hosted by Dakota w/ vegan soul food by Jerm Dee for $5 a plate suggested donation.

Performances by Zro Prophet, Savage Fam, Shining Soul, Alas, and Emcee Cyphers hosted by Sista Hailstorm w/ beats by Diogenes.

Closing Cypher/Decompression Session/Networking hosted by Julie C.
