Serina Gilbert is always coming across great stories and this one from Erin and Bob at White Cane Coffee is as good as it gets.
Taking a Bad Day and transferring that into the launching of a new company, Erin and Bob, a daughter and son team, tell us why they wanted to start White Cane Coffee and how they want to impact others with the opportunity through the affiliate program coming soon.
You can check out the line of White Cane Coffee on the web at www.WhiteCaneCoffee.comand find the coffee that best suits you.
Here is an overview of White Cane Coffee taken from the web:
Hi, I’m Erin from White Cane Coﬀee. I, with the help of my parents, started this company to provide great coﬀee to our customers and provide self sustaining jobs for people with disabilities.
We have a variety of coﬀee roasts for your enjoyment. Colombian Supremo is sweet, smooth and bold. We also have a Colombian Supremo Decaf which gives you all the same great ﬂavor without all the caﬀeine. But, if you want that caﬀeine boost, try our High Octane. Our Donut Shop blend gives you that fruity, clean taste you expect to ﬁnd in your neighborhood pastry shop. If you like a bold, earthy cup of joe, try our Dark Roast, it is roasted from 100% Indonesian Sumatra beans. French Roast gives you that rich, robust ﬂavor you may crave. Or if you prefer a Breakfast Blend, ours will give you that tangy, fruity ﬂavor you will love. All of our beans are organic and micro-roasted, using hot air to give you the very best quality and ﬂavor.
There is nothing worse than waking up in the morning and discovering you are out of coﬀee. (I shudder at the mere thought of it). So, that is why we oﬀer a subscription service so you can receive your favorite White Cane Coﬀee right on your door step every month. If you make your subscription for a full year, we will cover your shipping. You will also notice that, other than our sample box, (which I highly recommend so you ﬁnd the right blend for you), our coﬀee arrives in 1 pound and 2 pound packages. You will actually get what you expect you are paying for.
Now a bit about White Cane Coﬀee, and why we standout. The reason I wanted to start White Cane Coﬀee is because, number one, “Who doesn’t love coﬀee.”. But most importantly, my brothers and I are all on the Autism Spectrum and I am also blind. We have found that ﬁnding jobs extremely diﬃcult. In our experience, employers didn’t want to provide full time or a living wages to handicapped individuals. Or because of bullying on the job site staying at some jobs unbearable. So, at 22, I started to ask, “When you have the right people around you, the question stops being, What can I do? but What’s stopping me”. So here we are.
Our goal is to provide a welcoming environment to all people and provide jobs to the handicapped community at a living wage. Most of all, we want to provide you with a Great cup of coffee!
