It is with the utmost excitement that I give you the 2022 Coffee Pride merch from the Indianapolis Coffee Guide! I have been dreaming of this launch for several years now, and finally, the stars aligned to make it happen. This Friday, May 27, we’re dropping a very limited edition (and very cute) embroidered design for Pride 2022—available on crisp white tees and super cute pigment-dyed caps. Both are available in very limited quantities, and a portion of each sale will be going to the Indiana Youth Group and their efforts to foster community and provide safe spaces for LGBTQ+ youth in Indianapolis.

Show your coffee pride

Coffee houses have long been safe havens for the LGBTQ+ community, and the Indy coffee community is incredibly diverse in so many ways. Creating these shirts and working with so many queer people along the way to make them happen has been a literal dream of mine, and I am so happy with how they turned out and to share them with you.

Local coffee houses are safe spaces for all communities, and I am so thankful for all of the people I’ve met and the conversations I’ve had in them over the years. These shirts and hats are little love letters to every person who is different who has found these same truths as I have.

The Details

The Good: A portion of each sale will go toward the Indiana Youth Group and their efforts to foster community and provide safe spaces for LGBTQ+ youth in Indianapolis.

The Shirts: The shirts themselves are made by Known Supply, a forward-thinking company based out of LA that focuses on sustainability, visibility, fair wages, anti-fast fashion, and so much more. These high-quality shirts are built to last and come signed by the person who made them. We are so excited to work with Known Supply as their values highly align with the type of organization we aim to be.
