Online Coffee Events Happening This Week: April 13 – April 19th.
As in-person coffee events around the world are canceled or postponed due to the COVID-19 outbreak, a number of online coffee events are popping up far and wide. While millions are staying home in an attempt to flatten the curve, these virtual meet-ups are a welcome respite from binging Dishmantled and playing Coffee Talk.
Here are a few online events going on that you can participate in from home.
Coffee Break was created by Anderson Stockdale (Bellwether Coffee). She reached out to see if I would like to help out and I said yes and we have been collaborating since.
For me, hosting Coffee Break is only as important as those who join in and want to participate. I need this right now and it seems others do too. During this time of social distancing, it seems more important than ever to come together by any means and support one another by hanging out, listening to each other, sharing our lives and if you have a few bucks to spare, donating to one of the coffee companies we support each day or buying their merchandise. It has become a beautiful community that I hope continues to grow.
When: Every morning at 9AM on Zoom.
Coffee Break has a new website! Check it out here.
