5 Black Owned Coffee Shops in Atlanta

It occurred to me, in light of incidents that happened recently, that sometimes, we need alternatives to mainstream.  Last year, I put out a list of coffee shops in Atlanta, but it occurred to me that none of those were black owned.  I researched, and I found  5 black owned coffee shops in Atlanta that you need to check out. Not just because you may be boycotting someone…but because they need, want and deserve your business.

Coffee with a purpose. From the website:

“Our cafe is unapologetically centered on  the culture of our people and more specifically, on the historical and current influence of coffee and the coffee trade.”

You can also enjoy coffee, food, free wi-fi, reading material and entertainment. Check it out.

I added this one for my tea lovers and because..I’m starting to enjoy tea in the afternoon. Located in the Sweet Auburn District, this spot is great to relax with a cup of tea or coffee.
