Connect [verb]: to unite or bind, bring together into contact to establish a real link.
The Community was envisioned as a place for people to make meaningful connections over coffee. We have had the pleasure of playing host to all of you over the past three years. Be it coffee conversations with our baristas or a get-together of friends and loved ones, thank you for making The Community your place to connect. Beyond these walls, we strive to forge greater connections between you and the farmers behind your cup of coffee. We strongly believe that our farmers should be rewarded for producing such amazing coffee beans to us.
With a special collaboration with local artist Kaelligraphy @kaelligraphy.sg, The Community is launching its first piece of merchandise — a tote bag. Just like the coffee plant depicted, we hope that The Community branches out beyond connecting people through coffee – we hope to enrich the lives of those who toiled for our benefit. Kae’s art reflects our philosophy – simple yet intricate & detailed, as well as meaningful.
As we reflect humbly on our young journey, at this exact moment, numerable producers and families from Nicaragua are struggling to recover from the devastating effects of Hurricane ETA that befell on Central America. The overwhelming destruction has caused loss of properties, livestock, farms & lives. The main producer group we work with, RAMACAFE has been on the ground for over a month helping out their local community in getting back on their feet. As a small gesture, we are donating a portion of our proceeds from this collaboration. For every tote bag purchased at $15.00 by you, $10.00 will go to RAMACAFE and these proceeds will be used to procure essentials such as food, clothes etc for their local community. We thank you for the support and your generosity to help those in need. Limited run of 100 pieces is now available in store.
