[R]hode Island-based Dave’s Coffee is celebrating Pride 2019 by bringing back its bold Big & Fruity blend to benefit local non-profit, Youth Pride Inc.  In 2018, Adam Bonaccorsi, head of the company’s coffee program, came up with the idea to develop a special blend to celebrate Pride Month. The blend made special use of the juicy fruit-forward aspects of Ethiopian coffee and was bequeathed the title of “Big & Fruity.” A limited release of the blend was sold throughout June of that year with the descriptive tasting notes of juicy, bright, and fabulous. With the support of InterAmerican Coffee Inc., Dave’s Coffee was ultimately able to donate $1,300 to Youth Pride, which is dedicated to meeting the unique needs of youth and young adults of Rhode Island impacted by sexual orientation and gender identity/expression and reinforcing the values of leadership, affirmation, and community.

The company hopes to surpass its record from last year and build stronger relationships with Youth Pride, as well as its broader community, through the sale of Big & Fruity again this June. Big & Fruity will be available starting June 1 at both retail locations and online.
