1951 Coffee: “It’s important to communicate to people how large their impact can be.”

In this episode of “From Kitchen To Cause”, we speak with Doug Hewitt, co-founder of 1951 Coffee in Berkeley, California (1951coffee.com). 1951 Coffee is a non-profit specialty coffee organization that promotes the well-being of the refugee community in the United States. They do this by providing job training and employment to refugees, asylees, and special immigrant visa holders. The 1951 Barista Training Program prepares over 100 refugees per year for successful jobs in the coffee industry. 1951 Coffee also educates the surrounding community about refugee life and issues.
