We’ve got a contest up our sleeves…

 The best part about running a coffee shop is the community of people who visit us. We get to interact with a lot of you, we do a lot of people watching, and we’ve noticed something about our guests. You’re creatives with fantastic ideas.

You might have noticed our cup sleeves are currently blank. We aren’t out of ideas, but our latest idea is maybe our favorite: we want to hear YOUR ideas.

We’re launching a cup sleeve contest that’s meant for the dreamers & the doodlers.


  1. Come to our 8th Ave or Charlotte Ave locations & get yourself a blank sleeve

  2. Doodle to your heart’s content

  3. Write your name, email address & phone number on the inside of the sleeve

  4. Turn it back in to one of our friendly baristas
