About – BLQK

Grounded with the intent to make a difference.


Coffee is not just a drink. It’s a cultural intersection. By navigating this intersection with community in mind, our coffee has the power to set the revolutionary wheels of justice in motion.

It's about time that companies do their part to make social justice a reality.

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 social justice 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 cultivate food justice.

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 being a part of this movement. This is coffee, re-defined. sign

It takes all of us to shape a future ground(ed) in love. Our diverse team of change-makers and creatives invite our customers to join us in the active pursuit of justice for all:

- Through meaningful educational content
- Through opportunities and support for coffee lovers to educate themselves and get active in their communities.

As the heartbeat of tomorrow's culture, we create premium products, inspired experiences and meaningful content.

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. We’re giving back.

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.
