Coffee Equity Toolkit exists to collate and link resources that make coffee more inclusive and accessible to people from all backgrounds and all segments of the industry. Its content details how to improve the coffee industry and strengthen those within it, especially those from marginalized backgrounds or demographics. We are a hub of information fortified by group participation, so add helpful resources as you encounter them or even create them yourself.
