Mythical Coffee is all about coffee and inclusion. That is why our new policy is that all refugees are always welcome in our café so long as they can afford a six dollar small latte (cash only).
Owning a small independent coffee shop is about more than just making money. It’s about being a part of a community. A community that we would love to welcome you into, just as soon as you decide what drink you would like.
I take my role as a community leader very seriously. I’m not just some uncaring businessman ripping people off. I am fueling the members of my neighborhood as they start their day so they can go out and make a difference in the world.
This would probably be a good time to mention each refugee needs to buy his or her own drink if they wish to stay in the café.
Now I know that our latté’s aren’t cheap, especially on a refugee salary, but that’s because we pay our workers a fair wage and only use cruelty-free beans in our coffee. We charge more because we are fighting back against a capitalistic system that marginalizes common people to enrich the powerful.
Something you refugees are all too familiar with.
Moments like these are why I started my own business. I truly look forward to you coming to the register with your six dollars (cash only) so I can show you how much Mythical Coffee supports the downtrodden of our society.
But I do have to ask that you not beg our customers for money. It makes them feel uncomfortable.
Wait, where are you going? Well, I hope you decide to come back because let me tell you, you aren’t going to find a more supportive space than here. Especially on that budget.
Are you a refugee who feels like sipping on a six dollar latté? Let us know in the comments below!
