What would happen if cxffeeculture loved people of color as much as it loved their cash crops? What if we cared for and celebrated single-origin people as much as we celebrated single-origin coffee? The Anti Gentrification Coffee Club is a social experiment based on using history, art, hip hop culture, and imagination to find answers to those questions. We believe coffee can be a force for good in our communities, not just in spite of them. We believe that coffee is not just FROM communities of color, but it can be FOR them too. The profits, the aesthetic, the job opportunities, the empowerment, and most importantly the vibe. All these can be tools to deepen the ties in our communities, rather than displace them. Coffee can do more than stimulate the minds of folks who consume it; we imagine it can stimulate the economy of the communities it’s in as well.
