Narrative Coffee Roasters changed things up recently and will now bringing you coffee straight to your front door. The change comes as COVID-19 shuts down more and more businesses across the country.
“Most of our wholesale clients had to close their doors due to all of the precautions that needed to be taken," said owner Caleb MacPherson. "So we were forced to either close our doors or go straight to the consumer.”
After four years in business, MacPherson is adapting to the current situation with home deliveries. In addition to following traditional guidelines, he now wears a new pair of gloves with every order, wipes products down, and implements a no contact system.
“There is no contact, everything is contactless payment. You pay online and you get a text when your coffee arrives.”
Customers can order from a variety of products. It’s a small change for his business, but something he hopes will help add a little normalcy to a customer's day.
“Half gallons or gallons of cold brew. They can do beans as well as ground coffee."
At the moment, the company is only doing deliveries once a week, but MachPherson said it looks like they could be upping it to twice a week thanks to support from the community.
MacPherson said that type of support, now more than ever, is important for all local businesses.
“These are your friends out in the community," said MacPherson. By shopping local you are able to quite literally help them pay their bills, mortgage, rent, put food on the table. Quite literally, you're supporting your own community.”
