Here are some of the fun questions we’ve received (and the answers we offer in a mix of seriousness and silliness):
Is this coffee queer?
Very much so.
Will this coffee make me queer?
Why, do you need help with that?
Do you have to be queer to buy this coffee?
We won’t ask anything about your sexual orientation at checkout. We do make assumptions, however. 😉
What does Queer Coffee sell?
We sell high-quality, whole-bean, 12 oz bags of coffee. We also value organic, fair trade, cooperative principles and strive to live up to them in our sourcing of everything from the beans to the bags.
Which LGBTQ+ causes does Queer Coffee support?
We donate $2 of every bag sold to LGBTQ+ causes. Our first nonprofit beneficiary is the Campaign for Southern Equality.
Why “queer?” Isn’t that a derogatory term?
It used to be, yes. And it still can be too. But many LGBTQ+ people are using the term to describe all of us, without derision. Queer Coffee embraces all of us in the queer community: lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex, asexual, ally, pansexual, gender nonconforming, and so on.
Is this for real?
Yes! Queer Coffee is a lesbian-owned, queer-embracing company meant to combine our love of coffee and our desire to give back. Join us and try a bag of coffee!
