24 Black Owned Coffee Shops in Los Angeles

It's been a little over two years since the murder of George Floyd. During the summer of 2020, it felt like all eyes were on racial inequalities. As the content we’ve consumed in the past two years has seemingly returned to “business as usual”, we’ve seen less and less about #BlackLivesMatter, and significantly less content encouraging us to support Black owned businesses.

We’re here with a caffeine-fueled reminder to re-focus and remain committed as we continue to push for change in every form. Creating real economic opportunities for Black people and communities includes being intentional about patronizing Black owned businesses.

This means we might have to go out of our way. This means we might need to leave 15 minutes early. This means we need to visit other neighborhoods. This means acting with conscious. This means that Black lives do matter. We want to see intentional participation from non-Black people patronizing Black owned businesses.

Starbucks and Coffee Bean ain’t going nowhere. Share this post with a friend and ask them to pull up at one of these 24 Black Owned Coffee Shops in Los Angeles.
