a mobile coffee experience coming soon
what is our why?
Brewing Real D.R.I.P.
In Little Rock, only 1 out of 2 Black households are able to seek and sustain a thriving life defined by economic wholeness. Between disinvestment and lack of resources in Black communities, many of Little Rock's hardest workers are faced with grim choices for survival and little room to dream.
*WellBrewed Coffee Co will change that.*
Our plan is to start a Black-owned, mobile coffee company.
But, more importantly, our purpose is to do coffee with consciousness by driving resources and investments to people in the places that have been historically overlooked and trapped by economic inequities. That's right. A portion of the proceeds from our coffee sales will be dedicated to Black leaders and entrepreneurs committed to social change. That's why our tagline is "Brewing real D.R.I.P." Because we are re-defining the concept of drip as a movement with and for the betterment of Black lives and communities.
Meet Jeremy & Shantell
who are we?
Jeremy is most in his element when he is being innovative - finding ways to both honor the richest traditions of history and infuse new ideas inclusive of the next generation. Jeremy is a planner, a reconciler, and an advocate. Jeremy embodies service as a strategic, detail-oriented, and organized leader with a gift for executing tasks with a spirit of excellence and professionalism.
Shantell is a dreamer, an inquisitor, and a motivator. She thrives most when she is imagining and implementing multivalent tools for community. Shantell embodies service through altruism and integration. She is a good listener, teacher, and facilitator with a gift for creating interactive resources for conversation and educational enrichment.
Together. We are healers. We are truth-tellers. We are lovers of God and people. We are invigorated by imagining what it means to engage the triune requirements of God - that is, to do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with God (Micah 6.8). We embody service through deliberately connecting our faith to social justice.
And, of course, we are coffee lovers too.
Follow Our Fundraising
how will we get there?
To operationalize our mobile coffee experience, we are raising start-up capital in the following ways:
IndieGoGo Campaign (June-Aug 2020)
Online Swag Shop (Sept 2020)
Pop-up Events (coming Fall 2020)
We are counting on like-minded people - conscious coffee drinkers - to help us get there. Our lives have been immeasurably enhanced by the generosity of our village. In many ways, our own dreams have taken shape because of the various investments of encouragement we have received over the years. And, now - as we see more and more Black death plastered on the news and small screens, the time is now to invest in Black life.
We've done our research and hope to purchase the following with the funds raised:
A trailer, which will serve as the foundation for our mobile operation
Coffee equipment, such as an espresso machine, grinder, etc.
Coffee truck retrofitting/building the mobile operation
Purchase of supplies & permits
Though our official fundraising campaign is over, you can still send your donations via CashApp: $wellbrewedcoffeeco
