Dear clients, friends, and supporters–
At Aspire CoffeeWorks, we believe that when all of us are united, we are better and stronger. In these uncertain times, this belief rings true more than ever. We hope you remain safe and healthy. Remember, together, we’re better.
Our team continues to closely monitor communications from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and government agencies to stay on top of the evolving situation with COVID-19. The health and well-being of our team members, partners and community are our highest priority at Aspire CoffeeWorks.
With the help of our roasting partner, Metropolis Coffee Company, we are continuing to fill orders. As you may know, office coffee sales make up a large part of our business and fuels our mission. With offices across the Chicagoland area and country closed to slow the spread of COVID-19, our coffee orders have declined significantly. We are grateful to have wonderful long-time partners, Metropolis Coffee Company and Canteen Refreshment Services, along with many supporters like you, to help us through these difficult times. We remain optimistic about the future and look forward to the time when the roasterie and offices are buzzing again. In the meantime, if you’d like to help, we’ve listed below many different ways to do so.
Thank you for your support!
-Aspire CoffeeWorks Team
