Say goodbye to the basic and mundane cup of coffee and say hello to coffee with gusto and personality.  It's time out for the old so let's bring in the new with -Badge Brew!

Badge Brew Coffee Roasters is a company that is here for everyone.  We are in the process of creating coffee that tastes great and has unique flavor complexities that anyone can enjoy.  You shouldn't have to be a coffee snob to get awesome coffee.  Starting with online sales, we are intent on providing a superb coffee experience to anyone interested in excellence.  We all work in hard in life, coming from different backgrounds and experiences.  There are so many different badges we wear in life,  whether it be a student, professional, homemaker or caretaker.  It's wonderful to feel honored in even the simplest of ways like ...your coffee!

Even more important than creating coffee greatness for everyone,  Badge Brew is here to open the coffee industry doors to more African Americans.  Our entrance into the coffee business is an advancement for people of color. Coffee is a mammoth of an industry and the percentage of African Americans involved is extremely low and under-represented.  Its empowering and at the same time sobering to realize that this billion-dollar coffee culture originates from Africa and yet we have almost a nonexistent piece of the pie.  We're here to change that! As we gain traction and success, we are looking forward to building opportunities in the African American community where we can introduce, interest, train and support others interested in pursuing a career in coffee. 

We have endlessly, but with no success, searched for grant money to help move along our endeavors to make Badge Brew an active machine.  Financial assistance would greatly help with our largest investment, the purchase of the coffee roaster which is $11,000.  Another large expense for which funding would be used is for the purchase of high quality green coffee beans from sustainably producing farms in various regions of the world.  The cost for beans and supplies will require more than $5000.

Badge Brew Coffee Roasters is on the cusp of launching. Any money received would be responsibly put to use immediately.

Support from those willing to invest in Badge Brew Coffee Roasters would mean that we'd be able to get closer to our goal of breaking into a widely popular, yet culturally under-represented, industry.   We will be on our way to creating a successful coffee company that responsibly gives back while also providing an excellent experience to anyone looking for quality coffee with rich flavor.

Any support we receive would create in us a phenomenal sense of gratitude and appreciation.  It would mean that others see our vision and want to be a part of a movement that is working toward creating equality and opportunity for all individuals.   Supporters would be a part of history in the making.  This is a chance  to help create success not only for Badge Brew Coffee Roasters but for those who come behind us, opening the door to knowledge and possibilities previously not known.

As in life, Badge Brew Coffee is an experience worth taking!

We want to know..."What's Your Badge of Honor..."
