#coffeemoustache

We are holding the #coffeemoustach giveaway to bring a smile to people’s faces and raise awareness of mental health issues. This is a tough time for baristas and everyone who works in the coffee industry. Many independent cafes have had to close and baristas have lost their jobs. We want to remind everyone to check in on each other and keep in contact in these challenging times, barista, or not.

WHY

It is more than raising general awareness, it is all about the coffee community and people behind the cups. O hour contracts in low paying work. Tips aren’t anything close to what would be received in a restaurant or bar, because this side of the hospitality industry “just makes coffee”. In busy periods the physical labour a barista puts into their work can be extraordinary. Twisting, turning, bending, and scraping, all to bring you the best cup ion coffee they are capable of. We can’t forget about these passionate individuals during a time where their mental health can be challenged.

So many individuals who have committed their lives to serving the best coffee possible have lost the stability in life that they worked so hard to gain. This is why we want to bring attention to barista health with our #coffeemoustache contest. Show off your coffee moustache and bring a smile to people’s faces and raise awareness of mental health issues. 

HOW

To give real value back to the community, we have teamed up with some of our partners to help create awareness and try to give something back in these uncertain times. We will also organize online events, invite special guests, and talk about coffee, baristas’ challenges, and how to help them in difficult times. Through this #coffeemoustache contest, we will again connect the global coffee community, so join us and Do Good together.
