This holiday season, give the bridge-builders in your life a meaningful gift that will both spark conversations on racial equity, all while supporting BIPOC creators and business owners.

Portrait Coffee’s goal is to empower and equip Atlanta natives and residents with genuine career and life opportunities in the world of coffee. Their name comes from a desire to change the picture that comes to mind when folks think of specialty coffee. Coffee, as a product, was first discovered by Africans.
