Diversity & Inclusion

Since Uncommon Coffee Roasters opened in 1994, it has always been known as “the local gay coffee shop.” LGBTQ persons have always found it welcoming and comfortable and have always been greeted by the rainbow flag.

Noemi is the daughter of our Partnership Farmer, Bernardo Ponce, in Honduras. We have been sponsoring her since she was in Kindergarten. Our sponsorship provides her with school supplies, food at school, medical care and a bilingual education.
We invite you to join us in helping the kids of Honduras to receive a better education by sponsoring a student of your own!

The “Uncommonly Fabulous Fund” is a monthly donation from Uncommon Coffee Roasters* to purchase supplies for LGBTQ youth and adults in Southwest Michigan. These funds will be used to meet a variety of needs for LGBTQ folks in the community. This could include, but is not limited to, transportation, medical bills, binders for Trans Youth, school supplies or other supplies. Recipients of the funds are required to fill out a brief application explaining their needs, which will be reviewed by a panel of three people and allocated where necessary.
