Reza’s Roast plans local coffee donation event

A local coffee roaster is looking for your help to donate coffee to area soup kitchens and shelters.

Reza's Roast, a Fairborn roaster of coffee sourced directly from farmers, is inviting the public to stop by Saturday to its "Roast it Forward" event to buy coffee beans at cost and donate to local organizations.

For the Saturday event, Reza’s stated it bought inexpensive (but still ethically sourced) green beans to donate to local soup kitchens and shelters.

“Come buy at cost as little or much as you like and we will help you roast and bag it yourself,” the roastery said.

Stop by 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the 611 W. Yellow Springs Fairfield Road business to participate.

The business’ roaster can do a batch in less than 15 minutes. Then visitors can take the coffee to donate where they would like or leave it for Reza’s to drop off.

Not sure where to donate? Reza’s has a list of local organizations that would be grateful for coffee.

There will be free donuts and coffee, tea and hot chocolate. Kids are invited and there will be some children’s activities as well.
