Cool Beans: Oakland Coffee

Oakland Coffee1Oakland Coffee 2

Mike Dirnt and Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day are brewing up some tasty blends, coming a long way since taking coffee with 409. Meet their newest baby, Oakland Coffee — a coffee company built around philanthropy and sustainability!

They work with cooperatives in Peru and Bolivia for the highest quality beans, and show love back by collaborating with non-profits to improve health and education institutions in the Andean communities.

Also cool, the packaging is made from starch and sugars, making it completely compostable. So many good things in one, how could you resist?

So far, the coffee company has had two pop-up shops at the Atomic Garden in Oakland. Follow Oakland Coffee on Instagram @oaklandcoffee to be in-the-know of all pop-ups. You can also shop and learn more about the initiative at
