When we walked away from the corporate world in 2011, both of us intended to support ourselves financially by working at a local coffee shop. But then our writing quickly spread and our coffeehouse dreams never became a reality. Until now…
Our friends Sarah and Joshua Weaver—the husband and wife duo responsible for many of the photos on our website and book covers—are opening a beautiful independent coffee shop, Bandit Coffee Co., in one of our favorite cities, St. Petersburg, Florida.
The shop opens later this month, January 2016, and, to celebrate, The Minimalists will join Bandit Coffee Co. for three days of special events:
On Saturday, January 23, Joshua & Ryan will host a private charity screening of our upcoming film, Minimalism: A Documentary About the Important Things. (Tickets)
And then we will join the Bandit team as guest baristas for two days: Sunday, January 24, 12–4 PM, and Monday, January 25, 7–11 AM. Both days are free and open to the public. (RSVP)
All of the profits and tips we earn will be used to fund the family-style orphanage we’re building. (Note: even if you can’t make it to Florida in January, you can still contribute to the orphanage.)
UPDATE: The January 23 movie screening sold out almost immediately, but don’t fret—we’ll still be serving coffee and tea and hugs on January 24 and 25. So, if you’re anywhere in Florida (or if you want to travel to Florida), we’ll welcome you with open arms. And who knows—we may even record a live version of our new podcast while you’re there. Plus, even though you may not be able to see the film in January, we will soon reveal how you can help bring our documentary to your city or suburb for its May 2016 theatrical release. Stay tuned.
