OUR roots

The Pour lies at the crossroads of coffee and community. A media platform that tells the stories of communal leadership, grassroots movements, and highlights the human connections being shaped every day through independent coffee shops. We meet all members of the coffee world who together renew their neighborhoods, foster dialogue, and create a force for positive change in their environments. Through their stories, we ultimately discover how the coffee industry is improving and connecting the people it serves.

As the world hurtles towards more digital, virtual, and data-driven relationships, an alternative path is emerging. The Pour stands up for “real world” communities. We believe that human relationships, face-to-face communication, and awareness of those around us is alive and important. Can we evoke positive commentary back into media? How can we turn conversations into action? Is it all possible through the framework of a coffee shop?

This is our response.

Welcome to The Pour
