Aspire CoffeeWorks is a social enterprise coffee company that combines the work of disability-focused nonprofit Aspire with the craftsmanship of Metropolis Coffee Company, one of the nation’s top artisan coffee roasters. Aspire CoffeeWorks supports people with disabilities in two important ways: it employs adults with disabilities as members of its team, and 100% of the net proceeds from its coffee sales go back to Aspire's programs to support 1,000 kids and adults with disabilities and their families. It’s a groundbreaking, one-of-a-kind partnership and a perfect example of how adults with disabilities can be productive and successful members of the work force.
