Last week we profiled Café Comunión, a coffee shop in San Juan, Puerto Rico who, though affected by Hurricane María, continued to stay open, serving brewed coffee outside their damaged storefront. Destroyed doors and windows and water-damaged walls and floors will all need to be repaired or replaced before the Santurce coffee shop can open fully. To aid these efforts, Café Comunión co-owner and 2014-15 Puerto Rico Latte Art Champion Abner Roldán has set up a GoFundMe page to help acquire the money needed to make the necessary repairs.
But the damages extend beyond what was done to the building. With Puerto Rico’s coffee farms also ravaged by the storm, many of the island’s shops aren’t sure exactly how they will get the coffee they need. As Roldán tells Sprudge:
Through their GoFundMe, Café Comunión is looking to raise $5,000 for repairs and as of writing this, they have raised just over 20 percent of that goal. And if you needed any additional incentive, a donation of $50 or more will earn you a handsome Café Comunión logoed shirt.
