Community is at the heart of this website. While the word itself won’t appear often, it’s impossible to write about coffee, faith and social issues while ignoring that community is vital to those topics. 

Coffee is far more than a beverage. It’s a catalyst to conversations with friends and family, cafes are neighborhood cornerstones and ethical coffee practices ensure that global communities can flourish. 

My faith is something I practice quietly, in my heart and soul. But it affects my community; how I interact with people and where I give my time and money. 

Social justice is about finding ways to genuinely help marginalized communities. For me, this looks like volunteering in the local refugee community. Online, it manifests in writing about people, organizations and businesses that support the oppressed and challenging current political/social structures that lead us away from empathy and true community. 

I prefer to think of this space as a writing experiment instead of a blog. I write as a reflection of my heart, as a creative outlet and in regard to where I’m at in life. 

 My writing style is fluid; sometimes I publish interviews, sometimes reviews, and at times my writing may look more like a newspaper article or free verse poetry. 

My wish for this corner of the internet is not that it be famous, but that it push people to challenge their assumptions, love well and move effectively in their communities.

  4. I’m excited to read more and get to know you! I really think you have a genuine voice and I’m really touched that you chose to write about Michael Brown (Rest in Power) in your about. It’s always inspiring when women want to get in touch with their roots, and help others There’s nothing more beautiful and strong than that.
