Incredible coffee for an incredible cause!
In 2009, Aspire launched a social enterprise coffee company by joining forces with one of the nation’s top artisanal coffee roasters, Metropolis Coffee Company. The partnership is one in which adults with disabilities on the Aspire CoffeeWorks teamwork side-by-side with Metropolis employees. Our team members help label, scoop, weigh, grind and package the coffee.
In addition to providing job opportunities for adults with disabilities, 100% of Aspire CoffeeWorks’ net proceeds go back to Aspire to support people with disabilities.
We started out selling coffee at local farmers markets and today we partner with nearly 100 companies across Chicagoland and the U.S. to provide incredible coffee that does incredible good. Many of these companies go on to volunteer, donate, or hire adults with disabilities from Aspire, truly embracing our mission and expanding our relationship beyond coffee.
Aspire’s vision for the future is all about creating working business partnerships that model the success of Aspire CoffeeWorks. We hope you join us and benefit from our expertise in helping companies diversify their workforce, build and enhance their community image and impact, and enjoy incredible coffee.
