For some people, coffee is an important aspect of their lives. But, if you’re getting your afternoon pick-me-up from a chain, you’re probably not drinking the best coffee you could get. Instead, try something new and head to your local coffee shop for your cup-of-Joe.
Here are some reasons to go to your local coffee shop.
Help Your Community
When you buy coffee from your local coffee shop, you’re actually helping the people in your community, instead of financing a big corporation.
Also, coffee shops are not just a place to get baked goods and drinks, they host events and sponsor youth organizations.
An added bonus is that they usually source their beans more sustainably.
Save the Environment
More often than not, local coffee shops produce less waste than chain shops, by using reusable mugs, spoons, and sugar dispensers instead of sugar packets.
Make New Friends
By going to your local coffee shop, you can get to know the people in your community better. It’s a great place to meet new people, while enjoying baked goods and drinks.
