Dear friends,

I hope you’re all safely navigating these challenging times. 

While we’re able to keep Coffee Exchange operating with a skeleton crew, providing drip coffee and pounds of coffee through a to-go window on the deck and regular online sales through the mail, the vast majority of our baristas are unemployed. Customers’ requests for ways to contribute “tips” to provide for these (“beloved” is the term often used) baristas have come at the to-go window, emails from alumni employees from 30 years ago, and many in between. I’ve received contributions, and promises to contribute.

I know that money is tight all over these days, but any support is greatly appreciated. Below I have outlined a few ways in which you can help:

1) The Coffee Exchange Venmo tip line. Venmo: coffeeexchangebaristafund. 

2) The Coffee Exchange Barista Fund GoFundMe page.

Any amount is greatly appreciated, and is split evenly among our staff at home. Thank you!
