My Independent Coffee Shop Welcomes All Refugees That Can Afford a Six Dollar Latte

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.
