Founded by friends Rob Johnson and Pernell Cezar, the brand helps communities on both a local and national scale. Its website explains, “They welcome the obligation to equip young people with tools to live their best lives and overcome familiar unfortunate circumstances by turning a daily ritual, enjoying a cup of coffee [and] tea, into a means of giving back. BLK & Bold pledges [five percent] of its profits to initiatives aligned to sustaining youth programming, enhancing workforce development and eradicating youth homelessness.”

From ground to whole bean coffee, you can choose from a variety of different flavors from Limu, Ethiopia and La Guadalupe, Honduras. There are also blends like Rise & GRND and BLK & Bold that are both Fair Trade Certified. The company also crafts loose leaf teas.
