A friend and I have been trying to figure out how we can roast and sell coffee from her garage. Turns out, state regulations changed earlier this year to disallow any and all shipping for home food producers. So, welp.

On the one hand, the laws can go fuck themselves. On the other hand, the law has a history of directedly fucking over people like us. 😟

On a related note, all the local coffee shops have shown their whole asses during this police violence crisis. Let's see, we've got the coffee shop that banned BLM signage, the coffee shop that shared KKK photos on Instagram, the shop that is explicitly run by Christian dominionists, and the coffee shop that is run by a white dude that also runs an Africa Safari and Hunting travel agency...

@Zuph Indeed. Makes getting a cup of Joe around here a hot mess.
