Hi Coffeeheadz -

Sure hope this finds you enjoying a smoooooooth cup!

Update on how you've helped fuel help in the Memphis area to uplift and support families struggling due to Coronavirus:

First, yes - we're still giving away 10% of all revenue from web sales! Since March, we've shared with Agape Child & Family Services, Hopeworks, Advance Memphis, and Memphis Rox. Thank you again for your awesome input - you are helping us steer funds where they are most needed!

Big news coming soon -
Keep an eye on our website & social media next month - J. Brooks turns 10 in November 2020! And we want to celebrate with all of you and have some fun, so watch for discounts, new coffee offerings, prize giveaways, and some new merch going live!

TTFN!

Thank you Coffeeheadz!
Thanks to your excellent support and appreciation of delicious java, we've shared with Agape Child & Family Services here in Memphis again this month! From their newsletter:

Because of wonderful partners like you, we were blessed to help families in Frayser, Whitehaven, and Hickory Hill who are recovering from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic!

This will not only help provide our families with emergency needs like groceries and household necessities. It will also help bridge the digital divide by providing much-needed technology like laptops, internet service, and software. These items, in turn, will advance workforce skills and will help ensure that children in our community don’t fall behind academically.

We are so grateful to all of you who make this possible - thank you for choosing J. Brooks for your daily fuel!

Peace to all -
The J. Brooks Team
(Pictured here, as well as a future coffee drinker who hasn’t been born yet!)

Greetings Coffeeheadz!
.
We hope this finds you well & even thriving in some way in all this isolation.
.
You sent us some fantastic responses to our plea for help in identifying worthy causes in the Memphis area who are on the front lines helping folks who are particularly vulnerable or suffering due to the pandemic. We knew we'd get far more ideas than we could apply in substantial ways, so we settled on two for the March contribution:
Agape Child & Family Services
Agape Child & Family Services
&
901 Gives
901 Gives
.
Agape is energetically helping vulnerable women & children who need groceries, childcare, internet connectivity for school lessons, and the list goes on. They are building on their tradition of excellence which is second to none.
.
901 Gives is partnering with local restaurants to provide breakfast & lunch for low income families with children who are out of school. This way they're supporting income for employees in the restaurant industry who otherwise would likely be without any income, while also supplying an essential lifeline to families reeling and unable to cope with things beyond their control currently.
.
We celebrate the sacrifice and commitment to genuine community displayed by both of these local organizations & encourage you to spread the word about their good work.
.
As promised, we continue to devote 10% of all online revenue (not just profits) to local groups helping our neighbors in need while the stay-at-home mandate remains in place. We'll keep you posted at the end of April with our next contributions.
.
Thank you for giving! We appreciate your partnership!
.
Yours in common,
.
The Coffeeheadz at J. Brooks

Dear Friends,
.
May this find you well and enjoying a stellar cup!
.
Our team at J. Brooks is showing maximum diligence as we walk this tight rope of honoring health and hygiene protocols while keeping our community fueled for the new normal we all face.
.
We’ve had days of long and intense thought and dialogue about how we can best offer comfort and help in this season. Beyond keeping you supplied with your steady flow of hot liquid filled with antioxidants, we’re going on offense. We have decided as a team to contribute 10% of all online revenue (not just our profit) to people or groups here in the Memphis area that are enduring significant hardship as a result of the pandemic. We are back-dating this action to Friday the 13th and will continue until the Safe At Home order is lifted from Memphis.
.
This is an expression of our sense of hope. We are a small business, still in the climbing stage, but our hearts go out to our neighbors who are in upheaval through job loss, sickness, or schooling challenges. So we are going on offense, in a community kind of way. We’re in this together and we will get through it together.
.
Will you help us? We are keen to hear your input for organizations and/or individuals who are vulnerable and deeply suffering due to the shock wave of this season. Please direct message us with suggestions.
.
We will pray earnestly over every suggestion and let you know early next week who we are compelled to help. Please submit your ideas by 9 am, Monday, March 30.
.
Thank you, dear friends, for your partnership. We are proud to serve you!
.
Yours in common,
.
The Coffeeheadz at J. Brooks

If you’re looking for fresh ground, hand tamped, specialty grade espresso, the Rising Roll has what you need! They just opened yesterday, so stop in and show them some love - and enjoy their selection of coffee, sandwiches, and breakfast pastries. Make sure to say hi to Nick, the barista pictured here. He’s knowledgeable, and generally a cool dude!
.
The owner, Michael Black, has put together a super cool vibe with clean aesthetics and wall-to-wall windows, which give the cafe a nice open feel. We’re excited to be working with such a sharp guy!

BREAD PUDDING coming in hot on Sunday. 🙌🏼Y’all. Niecy includes her made from scratch buttermilk biscuits in her signature bread pudding recipe. And I’m just tellin’ you. 😉Just sweet enough to be like dessert, but rich and hearty and dense in the best way with hints of cinnamon and a creamy sweet cream cheese glaze. ☕️ I’ll be dreaming of this paired with our J Brooks Coffee Roasters straight from Memphis. (In the spirit of full disclosure this photog was just going to take ONE bite. AND ATE THE WHOLE THING. 🙈) *This will be a first come first serve on Sunday dish.
1 DAY!!! Join us on tomorrow morning (3/3) at 10am at The Shell for an hour-long celebration to usher in the next chapter of Memphis music history! We'll have an incredible spread provided by Townsend Food Services LLC, Memphis Grazing, and J Brooks Coffee Roasters! You won't want to miss this! #theshell901 Click here to register: http://ow.ly/ySGM50I69IP
The Shell has survived many eras over the past 86 years, from the original Memphis Open Air Theatre, also known as The Overton Park Shell, founded during the Great Depression through to the Levitt Shell of the past 16 years. This historic stage has been the site of many pivotal concerts in the history of music from Elvis’s first paid gig, and what historians refer to as the first ever rock n’ roll concert, the seminal Country Blues Festivals of the 1960s and the community driven free programming of The Shell’s more contemporary years. One thing throughout The Shell’s history is certain, this is a stage meant for Memphians and our local musical heritage. On March 3rd at 10am, The Shell would like to invite you to be our guest to witness a new chapter in Memphis music history and a new name for our beloved stage. We would love for you to join us to celebrate and witness us announce to Memphis and the nation this exciting new stage. Please RSVP here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/meant-for-memphis-the-shells-next-stage-registration-266250009947 Come take an early lunch with us while you enjoy music by local favorites Lucky 7 Brass Band with special guest emcee WMC Anchor Kontji Anthony Light breakfast + refreshments will be provided by Chef Eli Townsend, Memphis Grazing and J Brooks Coffee Roasters #theshell901 #meantformemphis
