It’s a Grind!

During COVID, we were getting LOTS of coffee donations due to a citywide drop in demand at coffee shops. Usually, these donations are 5-lb bags of whole beans. Grinding down the beans and parceling them out into Ziploc bags was a major project, and we’ve been borrowing equipment from local coffee shops to get the job done.

Luckily for us, our friends at Beans & Bagels offered to convert their loan of a commercial coffee grinder into a donation! We now own our very own grinder, and the place smells great on “grind day” when we parcel out all of the donated coffee for our clients. Thanks, Beans & Bagels!
