A little about us
I Love Coffee
I Love Coffee is the world’s kindest coffee brand that trains and employs Deaf youth to grow a coffee business that cares for our people and the environment.
I Love Coffee is a Social Enterprise that opened its doors in June 2016 to breakdown communication barriers between the hearing and the Deaf and help unlock the economy for Deaf youth.
How to order a coffee from a Deaf barista
We make ordering as easy as possible in our stores.
Here are some handy tips:
1. Make eye contact and speak normally (shouting doesn’t help)
2. Point to an item on the menu or on display
3. Write on our counter top
4. Sign your order.
Our barista can teach you to sign for you order in a few seconds; to jump start your learning watch the video as Thembe demonstrates the most popular items on our menu.
Don’t feel shy, we’re here to help and love teaching people to sign
We are excited to meet you so pop in and say hi! We have stores in Greenpoint and Newlands with eyes on new spaces in the future!
