Spend Like It Matters.
  • Cheers to brewing community one cup at a time ☕️

To know Leona Moore-Rodriguez and Luis Rodriguez is to love and admire their clarity of purpose — and their beloved coffee shop, The Station has opened a second location in Seattle’s Columbia City neighborhood.

Join us in congratulating and thanking Leona and Luis for all that they have done and continue to do to strengthen the community.

In a recent interview with @southseattleemerald Luis shared, “It gives me a lot of pride in knowing that I’m leaving something behind for my kids, you know, a legacy for them, that their father, who’s an immigrant from Mexico, came and opened a business for them who are Black and Mexican, you know, and I don’t know where I’ll be in the next 20 years, but hopefully The Station will still be open.”

Throughout the pandemic Chef Bre of @heritagewoodinville & @tartewoodinville dressed up as kale, an egg, a taco, and more — bringing a little joy during uncertain and challenging times.

  • Sustainability is our jam 😋

Have you tried @ayakoandfamily jam? 

Did you know that after you’ve eaten all of the jam-tastic deliciousness, thanks to @lulumierecandles, your jam jar can begin a new life as a candle?

Happy Earth Month!

  • Small businesses have small margins.

Tag local businesses where you’re more than happy to pay full price ❤️

Because when you support a small business, they support other small businesses, donate to local organizations, and simply make our communities better!
