When coffee is deemed racist and a symbol of whiteness, perhaps it’s time you admit the importance of cream.

The one-drop rule, and all… [The unbearable whiteness of coffee: A slew of Black-owned coffee companies are reclaiming American coffee culture using design and branding that tells a rich story of Black history, Fast Company, March 31, 2022]:

For too long, much of Black history has been kept out of textbooks. Perhaps that’s why Black business owners are thinking out of the box to tell important, little-known stories—infusing history into the packaging, branding, and design of their products.

The coffee industry is a prime example. Black history and coffee history are deeply intertwined: Coffee was stolen from African plantations by Europeans in the 1600s, incorporated into the transatlantic slave trade in the 1700s, and today is a \$100 billion industry run mostly by white executives. Whitewashed coffee shops opening in Black neighborhoods are often an early sign of impending gentrification.

But a wave of Black-owned brands are working to reclaim the Black birthright of coffee. Memphis-based Cxffeeblack put this story smack in the middle of its coffee bags. Text on the back explains how the coffee plant was stolen from Africa by two Dutch spies shortly before the first enslaved Africans arrived in Jamestown, Virginia. “We are finding our liberation as a people, and now we are liberating our birthright,” the bags read.

Cxffeeblack is a fast-growing brand run by husband-and-wife team Bartholomew Jones and Renata Henderson. Launched in early 2020, Cxffeeblack harnesses the power of hip-hop and social media savvy to “make coffee Black again.”

Besides unpacking the racist history of coffee on its packaging, merchandise is a major part of how Cxffeeblack sends its message—and that message is far more profound than what appears on typical corporate merch. “When George Floyd was murdered, we came up with the ‘Love Black people like you love Black coffee’ tagline,” Henderson says. “We made a few shirts, with a goal to sell 25 in a week. By the end of that week, we sold 200.” They’ve now sold nearly 2,000.

Cxffeeblack deliberately uses design to connect its products to Black culture. Henderson, who also does graphic design for the brand, pointed to Guji Mane, Cxffeeblack’s signature roast. The use of bubble letters is intentional, she explains—bubble lettering is credited to graffiti artist Phase 2, who popularized the art form in the early days of hip-hop in the 1970s. “There’s a reason there’s a drip in the lettering. Drip represents this swagger—it has street appeal,” Henderson says. “When you say someone has drip, it means they’re dressed really well. ‘Signature drip’ says we like to do it with a different type of swag.”

At its brick-and-mortar shop in Memphis (appropriately named the Anti-Gentrification Coffee Club), Cxffeeblack invites visitors to sip a fresh pour-over while enjoying a cypher (a freestyle hip-hop session) by local artists. As musicians and artists, Jones and Henderson are focused on building a community through their business.

“Black women are the original baristas on this planet,” Henderson says. “But when I walk into most coffee shops, people look at me as if I’m an outsider. I want Black people to come into my shop and feel dignified.”

Dope Coffee, based in Decatur, Georgia, also infuses its brand with Black hip-hop and history. The shop’s mugs feature illustrations of Black women in history who broke barriers, like Harriet Tubman and astronaut Mae C. Jemison.

According to Kim Crowder, a business consultant who specializes in diversity, equity, and marketing, Black-owned businesses often use design to tell Black stories in addition to selling their products. “They’re using communal language to connect to their culture,” Crowder says.

ORDER IT NOW

Support for Black-owned businesses surged after the murder of George Floyd—but Crowder says Black-owned companies have always used narrative elements in their branding. “Storytelling is a big part of Black brands. Black culture is built around community, food, and Sunday dinners. A lot of our history was never recorded in the way that white culture has been, so a lot of our culture is based on oral storytelling.”

While storytelling is a common part of marketing in 2022, Crowder says this looks slightly different for Black-owned coffee companies. “We’ve seen Whole Foods talk about the origins of coffee,” she says. “But these brands are reclaiming these stories from a Black perspective that is less rooted in a large conglomerate. Businesses like Cxffeeblack take the history back to our communities.”

Do you like your coffee black? Not really. But apparently the whiteness of coffee is appalling in 2022.

Anything too white is automatically bad. Even coffee, and those who consume and produce it.

  1. Why would I care what black people think, do or say about their coffee? I don’t get it.

    • Agree: Legba
  2. What assclowns, trying to grab credit for something they never did.

    Cultivation of coffee originated on the Arabian peninsula, not in Africa:

    https://www.ncausa.org/About-Coffee/History-of-Coffee

    There’s a reason that the more flavorful coffee strain is called “arabica”, as opposed to “robusta”.  Dutch “spies” did not steal coffee from Africans, they probably bought seed beans from Arab traders.  This article is part and parcel of the claim that “Africans invented everything and Whites stole it”, calculated to fan racial resentment and hatred.  Such rhetoric is blood libel and a prelude to genocide.

  3. roonaldo says:

    I wonder if the African-run plantations from which the Dutch faunaknapped the coffee plants were being worked by African slaves.

    Better hope those hip urban Blacks don’t get the caffeine jitters when brandishing pistols during carjackings and armed robberies.

  4. A Jewish writer LIES about coffee…. Imagine my shock🙄. Liz Posner✡️ says that coffee “was stolen from African plantations by Europeans in the 1600s.”
    But that’s a *DELIBERATE LIE*, of course. In 1669 the Turkish ambassador introduced coffee to the Parisian court of Louis XIV. And everyone knows that MUSLIMS left coffee behind, after their failed attack on Vienna, in 1683.
    It was MUSLIMS who introduced coffee to Europeans…… not some bullshit tale that eeeevil ol’ white devils stole it from the black man…. who was “growing it on plantations in Africa.”😂 That’s COMPLETE BULLSHIT.
    And, truth be told, those Muslims cultivated it in YEMEN, which is not in Africa…. nor did they “steal” it. And the first coffee tree that WAS “stolen” by Europeans came from Aden, in Yemen, NOT AFRICA.
    >
    So, yes, Liz Posner✡️ is a big fat liar. Shock! And, since she’s a Jew, I’ll point out that she ranted about whitey, and *deliberately* LIED:
    * It was JEWS, not whitey, who in 1650, founded the first English coffeehouse in Oxford. A Lebanese Jew known as “Jacob the Jew”.
    *The first coffee house in Europe was opened in 1632 in Italy, by a Jew.
    * And it was JEWS, not whitey, who created Starbucks, which was the first massive national coffee chain. Howard Schultz, a JEW, not “whitey.”
    And Black Rifle Coffee Company is *also* a Jewish company.

    Yep, she LIED. But really: what else did you expect……?😏

  5. eah says:

    Written by a Jew (link, link; here she describes herself as white) — not that you should notice that.

    >reclaiming

    Pay attention to the subtle, tendentious wording — similarly, saying Whites are ‘privileged’ is meant to imply their success is unearned and therefore undeserved; this is reinforced by describing the US as ‘institutionally racist’ — all of this is the prologue to seizing wealth and assets as ill-gotten gains.

    As I’ve said before, via removing statues and paintings, renaming schools and other civic facilities, etc, the physical elimination phase of ‘diversity’ began some time ago.

    Whites who do not believe all of this portends even more serious consequences for them and their children in the future are naive.

  6. I’d love to design a company logo for black people’s coffee:

    One design would show black simians picking coffee beans, with white guys holding whips over them to make them work.

    Then a design showing them using a human-powered coffee mill to grind the coffee beans, blacks naturally would be shown as the ones turning the grinders with chains on, and again white guys standing by with whips to ensure they work their hardest.

    Another delightful design would show wealthy white humans enjoying their coffee, while
    looking into the fields of negroes picking coffee beans.

    The last design idea would be to show negroe primates stealing the ground and roasted
    coffee beans and being caught by white humans with whips and chains.

    Black coffee my a\$\$ets!

  7. Difficile est, satiram non scribere.

    Is their master plan to put decent hardworking waycisses out of a job
    by making idiots of themselves?
    Coffee was appropriated from the Turks who in turn stole it from the Arabs
    who in turn took it from the Amhara – you have to literally believe in
    Flying Pyramids ™ (nice idea for a coffee brand, no? 😛 ) to find a single
    Bantu in the woodpile.
    My guess is it is a kind of cargo cult:
    “Hmm …All those peckerwoods standing at Starbuck´s sipping a concoction of soot (Black!)
    spending insane amounts of the moolah they stole from Blacks! and being
    all rich an sheet … Heureka (or Black! equivalent)!!!”

    I reckon it´s better than a crack den, but the next Harlem Renaissance it aint.

  8. “There’s a reason there’s a drip in the lettering. Drip represents this swagger—it has street appeal,” Henderson says. “When you say someone has drip, it means they’re dressed really well. ‘Signature drip’ says we like to do it with a different type of swag.”

    I thought that meant that the person has gonorrhea.

  9. Reminds me of Fred Sanford saying he likes his coffee like he likes his women. Hot and black. Stealing plants? Really? Is that the same when Africans plant corn?

  10. usNthem says:

    “African coffee plantations”. What a joke – not only did magical negros get us to the moon, but invented coffee and were the entire planet’s original baristas! I just don’t know how humanity has ever been able to persevere and move forward without the benevolent leadership of the magical negro. No doubt one of life’s great mysteries.

  21. No matter what creation, invention, accomplishment or discovery is being discussed, you can rest assured that blacks will try to steal the credit for it. It would not surprise me for blacks to start claiming that they invented the igloo. That is, if they haven’t already.

    Sho nuff! One day,Mbutu wented up on top of Mount Kenya where it be snowin’ and he had a axxident where he broked his laig. He knowed he wuz gonna freeze to deff and dat’s when he cummed up wid de idea fo’ de igloo to save hisself. He smart! Not only dat but while he up de mountain, he had sum creamy goat milk wid him and he added sum flavorin’ to it but before he could drank it, it frozed in da cold. Dat’s how he inbented ice cream!

    Wait a minute! Eskimo’s have had igloo’s for thousands of years since they live in arctic conditions and it’s how they survive. Igloo’s weren’t invented in Africa. Not only that, ice cream or a version of it was first created in Persia!

    You stoopid and don’t know da history! See, dis how it happened. After Mbutu surbived da axxident on da mountain and gotted hisself down da mountain, one day he be standin’ on da banks of a ribber when he seed a Eskimo paddlin’ up de ribber in one of dose kayakical boats dey use. Da Eskimo tolded Mbutu about where he be frum and how it be cold all de time an’ how hard it be to live up in dere. Dat’s when Mbutu tooked him up de mountain and teached him how to make de igloo and how to make de ice cream too!

    Now, hold on just a damn minute! Are you seriously trying to claim that an Eskimo from the arctic circle paddled a kayak from the arctic all the way down to sub-Saharan Africa and had a conversation with an African when neither of them spoke the others language? Everything you’re saying is absolutely ridiculous! Besides that, how the hell do you think the Eskimo’s were surviving in the arctic if they didn’t already know about building igloo’s?

    Aw hell naw! I ain’t talkin’ to you no mo’! You one of dem racist honkies whut always be tryin’ to disrespek our history and tryin’ to make it look like we ain’t nebber done nuffin!

    Let’s not forget that the “slavery industry” as it existed on the North and South American continents was owned “lock, stock, and barrel” by JEWS.
    Jews financed and insured the slave ships, their crews and their (sub)human cargo. Jews also ran the slave auction houses and banks which offered “financing” for prospective slave “owners”. The slave auction houses were closed on the Sabbath.
    To this day, jews have never repudiated slavery…

  24. I drink my coffee black, no cream, no sugar. Ever see how blacks drink their coffee, they pourabout 1/2 a cup of sugar in it, then add about 10 flavored creamers which are also full of sugar, until they end up with a cup of milky looking sludge. They also usually put a handful of flavored creamers in their pocket or purse for later I guess. I used to see this every morning at 7/11 while I was getting my morning coffee.

    White people got coffee rather late in the game,and got it by trading,not stealing.

    Coffee was brought to Europe by the Turks a Whitish people. Who found the Whitish Arabs drinking coffee when they conquered Arab countries about 5 centuries earlier.

    Next I suppose we’ll hear about a secret tribe of Africans left over from some prehistoric conquests if India and China boiling different dried leaves till they came up with tea. And the evil Portuguese stole the tea.

    I believe the black nationalists have coffee confused with chocolate. The Spanish brought chocolate to Europe from America. Much of the Netherlands and what’s now Belgium was Spanish territory at the time. And the Netherlanders became major chocolate importers. The Dutch make a big deal out of that.

    Central District Fatal Pedestrian Crash
    On April 16, 2022, at approximately 12:36a.m., A 32-year-old male was walking northbound in the 3rd lane of I-83 North at the Chase Street exit, when he was struck by a vehicle. Medics responded to the location and transported the victim to an area hospital where he later died. The striking vehicle did remain on the scene. Crash Team Investigators are investigating this incident.

    My first thought is, what is someone doing walking along an interstate highway right-of-way?! Unless your car is broken down and you’re walking up to the next exit for help, you have no business being there! I don’t know what they mean by “3rd lane” though…to me that would be the fast lane. Maybe he was on something?

    This also made me think of the incident in Florida where the nog football player walked in front of a dump truck, or some other vehicle that can’t exactly stop on a dime, and met his maker. As I recall, that was also on some kind of interstate or toll road. At least, some kind of limited-access highway where it’s a reasonable expectation that you’re not going to have pedestrians!

    Right, like wicked Europeans “stole” coffee from darkest black Africa. Where’s the evidence that central west Africa had coffee? This bullshit claim is afrocentrism 101 which holds that blacks invented and created everything but white Europeans stole it and took credit for it. But now blacky is setting the record straight and taking it back!

    In reality this is yet another example of negro appropriation of white culture – in this case white coffee culture like Starbucks. The late Harold Covington observed that many blacks desperately want to be like whites and I think he was right. In my life I’ve seen blacks trying to live in white neighborhoods and hang around whites even when they privately resent whites. Most suffer from cognitive dissonance.

    After a falling out with the National Federation of Coffee growers over a misplaced pallet of beans, Juan Valdez illegally crossed the US border at Nuevo Laredo in the Summer of ’91. Instead of coffee, though, he brought in 8 kilos of cocaine, and was trafficked up to Des Moines, Iowa to work at a Mexican restaurant for 5 years. He then became a roofer and migrated to Albuquerque, New Mexico.

    3 DUIs, 5 different stolen identities, and 2 decades later, Mr. (now) Hector Valequez, was deported after spending time in the detention center in Alexandria, Louisiana, for grand theft and possession of stolen property related to the heist of a semi full of sacks of fine Columbian coffee beans from the Rahway, New Jersey, Pete’s Coffee distribution center.

    Early this year, Mr. Valdez was re-trafficked back* from the border into the interior of the United States via an iAero (formerly Swift Airlines) 737 flight into HPN, Westchester County Airport, White Plains, NY. He has last been seen working as a barista in the tony Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY under the name Josh, and is said to make a mean vente latte cappuccino.

    Oh, about the burro: That burro, Chica Valdez, was registered as a US national in the 1990s with a Social Security number and has been used 1000s of times by a vast network of hard-working illegal Columbian roofers for the claiming as a dependent on IRS 1040 forms. The real burro, she has been working in a sex show in a bar in Tijuana since 1983, under the influence of large doses of fine Columbia coffee.

    Well, you asked.

    It’s easy to avoid black businesses once you cross Outer Drive at Fort St. Run down and filthy looking churches, a bakery, a “night club”, and the ever present car wash. Which by the way sports a shifty mural that should deter any sane Whites.

    In other words, “white” really means “competent,” as in the black expression, “acting white.” Blacks already have all the “reparations” they need, lying on the table right in front of them, in the form of white people’s effective ideas and habits which enable us to live competently in the world our white forefathers produced for us and bequeathed to us. They can take those forms of reparations to improve their lives without having to rob us of anything.

    Nothing stops blacks from opening accounts with brokerage firms and investing in stocks, for example. At least the blacks who get windfalls of money, like those BLM grifters, and who then buy houses and gold bling show some awareness of the kinds of hard assets they should try to accumulate.

    Agreed. Blacks have absolutely been weaponized, their low IQ and propensity for violence make them very easily manipulated and directed street muscle. Just the thing when you want to crash property values and scoop up homes for pennies on the dollar, as a certain chosen tribe is famous for.

    The BLM fraud being a great example, with the three “co-founders” recently buying that \$6 mil mansion. Those 3 fat ghetto sow`s ran that whole thing? Bull shit. No fucking way there wasn`t a tribe member or two pulling the strings behind the scenes.

    Hell yes they let them be the “co-founders”, and get their names on any paperwork. Because they knew they`d do some dumb “looks at muh” shit like buy that mansion, while the `steins and `bergs quietly disappeared with most of the money and left them holding the bag when the embezzlement charges started coming down.

    Pretty funny actually.

    For 4 years I lived less than a mile from that mall. I think I went to the food court once and the other time I had to get a cell phone matter straightened out at ATT. Otherwise, what reason is there for any straight White male older than 25 to go to a mall?

    I knew without even looking that it was negroes doing the shooting.

    I noticed that the Whites in South Carolina sure loved their negroes. I think it’s because they’re college football fanatics for either Clemson or University of South Carolina. Even in private conversation, they never said anything bad about negroes.

    If I recall, that mall and several others in the immediate area were intentionally built outside of Columbia but the city of Columbia annexed the land to get the sales and property tax revenue.

    Other than the occasional BBQ joint,

    A dozen years ago, as a tourist from South Africa, I joined a street protest in Richmond, VA by the folks at Occidental Dissent. After the show, they all adjourned for some ribs. As we sat waiting at outdoor tables for service that never came, I got a look inside the kitchen: a small broom cupboard packed wall to wall with black, sweaty negroes. I decided that was a bit more local colour than I needed, thanks anyway, and left.

    Never did get the appeal.

    I have always found it interesting, even instructive, how Glenn leveraged his fame as an astronaut to land himself a cosy do-nothing job in the Senate, while Neil Armstrong, the First Man on the Moon, instead became a recluse. Almost as if he were ashamed of his part in that adventure.

    I saw an update to this story pop up this morning. Now the version I’m hearing is that he ran out of gas, and was going to get help. Still doesn’t explain how he got hit, though. Seems to me the logical thing to do would be to walk along the shoulder to the nearest exit, and then find a gas station.

    The last time I ran out of gas was in 1998. Luckily, it was across the street from a gas station!

    In some ways, knowing he ran out of gas makes it a bit more plausible. At least it explains why he was on that highway. But still, running out of gas just drives home their lack of future-time-orientation!

    I’ll admit, I felt pretty stupid, that time I ran out of gas. My only defense was that, I had gotten used to cars that had a low fuel warning light. And this particular did not have one. But I’m sure every car out there has a low fuel warning these days. But, that doesn’t mean that every driver has a good concept of future-time orientation.

    Funny you bring this up.  I have run out of fuel (it was diesel) exactly once.  I was testing the car to see how far it would travel on a tankful (over 700 miles IIRC) and deliberately ran it dry.  I had a can of fuel in the trunk and was back in business in the time it took to crank the engine to purge the air from the fuel line.

    I’ve had four cars quit on me when their fuel pumps failed, though.

    Mr. Rational————-Adult men rarely run out of gas.However,as a man responsible for a few females can tell you,they will run a vehicle bone dry.They will also ignore a “check engine” light for months. YOU THE MAN are responsible for their gas and maintenance. P.S. This does not apply if you are potentially facing a nasty divorce. One of the cousins avoided losing half his stuff when wife stalled out on I-85 and was hit by a large pickup truck.Wasn’t enough gas in her car to leave a wet spot.
