Red Bay Coffee Box
Red Bay Coffee Box is about more than crafting delicious, specialty coffee — it’s about supporting and building community. Owner Keba Konte works hard to ensure his coffee is high quality and sustainably-sourced, without exploiting the farms he works with. Red Bay is also dedicated to fostering a space of inclusivity and diversity — women make up 60% of the management team, and Red Bay makes a point to hire people who were formerly incarcerated, people of color, and people with disabilities. Keba opened his first shop in 2014 and has since expanded to three additional locations and a van for coffee on the go. Red Bay also doubles as a community space for host musicians, magazine releases, demonstrations, and whatever the community may need.
