We’re committed to pouring 25% of our profits back into our communities.
Roasted with a purpose.
Our goals are simple. They are our honest aspirations for the world.
- Life up and inspire our Youth - reduce the education gap and create direct mentorship opportunities in our communities.
- Show it can be done for those who think they can't do it themselves.
- Roast and share the best coffee in the world, using it to share our authentic experienced truth and values.
We kept what people know and love about specialty coffee: the aromas, the flavor, the buzz, and we’re redefining it to mean more. Re-define your coffee. Join us on our journey.
Grounded with the intent to make a difference.
It's about time that companies do their part to make social justice a reality - and we believe in leading by example from the front.
Our coffee the very best you can find and we are obsessed with roasting it to perfection. Through this craft, we want to inspire the next generation and create direct mentorship opportunities.
The more our company grows, the more our impact will grow.
That’s a promise.
Led with optimism.
The coffee you’re about to enjoy is the beautiful result of a project I started up this past Juneteenth with a small but ambitious team who are driven by love. We all thank you for being a part of the coffee revolution that we’re brewing here at BLQK.
The heart of our company is our mission. Our future can only be as bright as our communities are strong. That’s why we’re committed to pouring 25% of our profits back into our communities. We donate to organizations that improve access to quality education, bridge opportunity gaps, and create direct mentorship opportunities for our youth.
Our coffee is second to none. But our coffee doesn’t taste better because it gives back. It tastes better because we source our 100% Arabica beans from expert producers, and then artisans here in Los Angeles hand-roast them to order.
I hope you enjoy BLQK coffee as much as we enjoyed bringing it to you. As you sip, imagine what’s possible in a world built on love. Thank you for joining us on our journey. We are excited to see you.

Brewed with higher standards.
We source our 100% Arabica beans from expert producers, and then artisans here in Los Angeles hand-roast them to order. Only 1% of the world’s coffee beans meet our quality standards.As they roast, we let our beans reach balanced, not-too-light and not-too-dark flavors, so you can get the most out of each cup.
Poured with the possibility of a just future for our communities
We’re not just giving back. We’re dedicated to changing how businesses measure their impact.
We believe a business must consider not just its shareholders, but all of its stakeholders - including those in its community.
We know that anything we accomplish is only possible with the hard work and support of our local, national and global communities.
That’s why we’re committed to pouring 25% of our profits back into our communities. Our future can only be as bright as our communities are strong. We donate to organizations that improve access to quality education, bridge opportunity gaps, and cultivate food justice.
