From La Coop Coffee:

“As many of you know, Juan Luis started a coffee cooperative in his hometown of Union Cantinil, Guatemala about 15 years ago. His goal then was always to bring together the farmers as a group to help them collectively earn more for their coffee and build a better life for themselves and their families. He never gave up on that dream and that remained his goal when he started La Coop.

Last week 27 farmers (Juan’s father included) loaded up their coffee in Guatemala to send to us here in D.C. They were paid above market price for their coffee as Juan always intended when he formed the cooperative- to make sure they are not just getting by, but earning a living. Many of them came together proudly to pose for the above photo after turning in their coffee to begin its journey to us here in DC. They went out to celebrate that afternoon, filled with joy and pride to know that their hard work had paid off and that Juan never gave up on his dream of helping them build a better life for themselves and their families.

“Dear PoPville,

Stopped by Donut Run this morning and saw that someone broke their window. Their Instagram says that someone also stole their BLM flag which was prominently displayed, which they are asking to be returned to them.

Not sure who would do something so horrible to a really well-loved local business in the community. Wishing them well as they clean up and recover and also will definitely stop by for donuts first thing when they reopen!”

Thanks to all who passed this sad post from Donutrun’s IG:


Someone really wanted donuts this morning! We are closed today to clean up our shop. ⠀

P. S. To whoever took our Black Lives Matter flag, please bring it back. We’ll gladly make you your own one.”

Let’s show them some love when they reopen!! “7am – 2pm” Read More
