"Love Black Coffee People Like You Love Black Coffee: No Sugar, No Cream."
This bandana is a collaboration between two friends of Umeshiso, Cxffeeblack* and Coffee People Zine. It was created for the release of Coffee People Zine Issue 10, which features all-Black creatives in the coffee community (also available on Umeshiso.com!)
Memphis-based Cxffeeblack is a multi-media operation with a physical location, online sales of coffee and apparel, and music created by its founder, Bartholomew Jones. Through many channels, Cxffeeblack promotes the Black history, present and future of coffee. The coffee plant hails from Ethiopia and the beverage is a Black invention, yet Black people in the US are too often shut out from the coffee industry.
In Cxffeeblack's words, "We want to help folks learn to appreciate coffee in itself, as a micro metaphor for our need to appreciate black people, not just the culture and art they create."
*Profits from the sale of these bandanas will go directly to Cxffeeblack's Free First Sip program, where they offer free coffee every day to any community member in their neighborhood. The Free First Sip program welcomes Black people to enjoy beautiful coffees grown and roasted by Black people all over the world.
QUESTIONS ABOUT 🧮 SLIDING SCALE OR 📦 SHIPPING? PLEASE READ ON!
🧮 SLIDING SCALE: Everything on my webshop is priced on a sliding scale. Just choose the price that is comfortable for you. My goal is to make each item as accessible as possible, to folks from all different backgrounds. It works because the community observes the honor system: those who are able to pay more make it possible for others with less resources to pay less.
📦 SHIPPING: I ship to US & Canada only at this time, because I'm only one person and I can only handle so much. However, CoffeePeople.Org ships these bandanas to every country.
Every order is hand-packed with care by me, Umeko, in my home in Kansas City, MO. I ship out orders 1-2 times per week.
Umeshiso a one-person operation with a lot of projects, so at times I may not be able ship orders the exact day planned. If you have any questions at all about shipping times, please email me directly at umeko (at) umeshiso.com.

I received my products in Canada in a reasonable time. I could see the tracking from USPS and the from Canada Post. I couldn't believe Umeko snuck in a couple of pencils for me. Thank you! If you could use the sliding scale, do so! This is an ally-led small business! ♥️
