Our Mission

“To celebrate the coffee community

by empowering baristas to

reach their fullest potential”

Drinking coffee is probably the one daily habit that we all share on a global level. However, we rarely know how much effort has gone into a great cup of coffee. Through each stage of the value chain, we have numerous coffee enthusiasts working hard with incredible passion, love, and goodwill.

Baristas prepare our favorite wake-me-up beverages while combating financial stress and sleep-deprived customers. It’s time to acknowledge their work, skills, and knowledge. At I’M NOT A BARISTA, we raise up baristas, give them faith and voices through sharing coffee stories from the globe.

Yeah, we did it, $20,000 on Kickstarter.

Our amazing journey with Kickstarter has come to an end. We are absolutely floored by the overwhelming response received on Kickstarter. If you, unfortunately, missed our Kickstarter campaign, subscribe to our newsletter and get to know when we open pre-order.

It’s a t-shirt on a serious mission but going about it in an ironic way

This T-shirt can prove to be the ideal icebreaker in starting a conversation between baristas and coffee consumers. We’re not only improving our relationships with baristas but also building and increasing awareness about the world of coffee through the faces most consumers experience the coffee chain.

#Brewathome Campaign

Through the #brewathome campaign, we are able to build a platform to connect everyone in the coffee industry. We collect and share coffee tutorials and brewing tips, organize online coffee events, also team up with hundreds of international coffee brands to deliver real value back to the community.

To me, #brewathome is an oasis of positivity during this very difficult time and a very powerful social media movement that brings together roasters, coffee accessory companies and customers. I am so happy to be a part of this and work with this incredible team of people.

Lisa LigonSales & Marketing Manager for AeroPress

Coffee is Community, and right now the Community needs to come together, to keep it together. The initiatives we’re taking will ensure that coffee lovers everywhere will continue to enjoy one of their greatest comforts in life as they self-isolate at home...

Andrew PernicanoHead of Brand at Flair Espresso

#BREWATHOME is an exact expression of what the coffee community does best: inclusion, support and togetherness. We're all feeling anxious, isolated and stripped of our normal lives so knowing there's a hub of fellow coffee lovers who are in the same position definitely helps!
