As part of our ongoing efforts to fundraise in support of our beloved community members, Julien Langevin and Veronica Pearl, we are proud to announce a collaborative, mutual aid coffee release under the label Trans Mental Health Fund. With the support of Trans and Caffeinated, Glitter Cat Barista, Go Fund Bean, Tanbrown Coffee, Umeshiso, Atlas Coffee Importers, and Cafe Imports, this is a true labor of love from queer coffee pros and allies to help two dear ones in need in Pride Month. All profits from the sales of these coffees will be donated directly to Julien and Veronica, who have both taken on significant debt in order to address mental health crises they’ve faced this year.
This is one of two offerings available through Trans Mental Health Fund, and it comes to us from Finca Los Pinos, a farmed owned by Carmen Cecilia Montoya in Antioquia, Colombia. It’s a lovely washed process Caturra Chiroso coffee, and we are tasting citron, tangerine, sugarcane, and mangosteen, along with a pleasantly coating mouthfeel.
For more information, or to directly donate Julien and Veronica, check out the Hot Medicated Summer campaign via GalaBid.
