Drink Aspire Coffee and Create Jobs

Locally Roasted Beans with a Bigger Purpose

aspire coffeeworks chicago!

So far this holiday season, you’ve bought twelve gifts (for yourself) and spent time with the family (er, Modern Family).

Get in the actual spirit with Aspire coffee, a collaboration between Metropolis (one of Chicago’s best roasters) and Aspire, a nonprofit that helps children and adults with disabilities. Profits from the fair trade, certified organic beans go toward creating jobs at the Andersonville roasting facility for people with Down syndrome, autism, cerebral palsy, and other conditions.

Pick from: Aspire Roast (a breakfast blend with hints of toffee and pecan that sweeten when you add milk), Aspire Bold (classic French), and Dream Big Decaf (earthy/nutty with a chocolate finish).

The gift baskets include Coffee & Sweets (coffee, chocolate, and shortbread), Elegant Brew (coffee and a French press machine), and The Perfect Pair (coffee plus two mugs). All make ideal presents. Hint, hint.
