It is a bittersweet week for ACR as we bid farewell to a key member of our team. After four years of unrelenting dedication to ACR, Eva has decided it is time to follow her passion for adventure in a new direction. Although we will truly miss her presence, we are grateful beyond words for the hard work and sacrifice Eva has given and we celebrate her time and contribution to us. Here since the doors first opened, Eva’s passion and personality are ingrained into everything we do. Through creating a tightly knit team and strong bonds with the community, Eva’s love for others has created spaces that are about so much more than coffee.

Eva’s passion for adventure is something we as a team have valued greatly and we fully support her in her future pursuits. We know wherever it leads her will be served very well by her love.

We are so excited to see where life takes you next and we wish you all the very best. Cheers, Eves.

We will miss Porchrokr this year but are excited to get our Couchrokr on. 🤘🏼

PorchRokr, the summer music festival that draws thousands of people to the Highland Square neighborhood to watch local and national bands play on porches is not happening due to the pandemic.

But the Highland Square Neighborhood Association, which produces the popular festival, isn’t leaving PorchRokr fans adrift. Instead the non-profit volunteer group have reimagined it into CouchRokr, a virtual festival happening on Saturday, August 15. https://www.beaconjournal.com/entertainment/20200804/porchrokr-2020-no-way-couchrokr-2020-yay via Akron Beacon Journal

City of Akron, Ohio - Mayor's Office

A reminder of the importance of wearing a mask in our space - please help keep our staff and our customers safe. Thank you.

Mayor Horrigan reminds us that if 80% of us were to wear a mask, COVID-19 infection rates would dramatically decrease. Statistically the rate would drop to approximately 1/12 the number of infections—compared to a population in which no one wore masks.

Please continue to keep each other safe by wearing your mask when in public settings and giving each other space. These very simple actions can stop the spread and save lives.

ACR believes Black lives matter. We condemn racial injustice in all forms, particularly the racial violence we have witnessed recently.

ACR believes Black voices matter. We condemn the president’s threat to use military force to suppress protesters speaking out against racial violence.

We have been extremely disheartened by the events that have unfolded over the past several weeks. While we are not quick to make social media posts, we have been listening and learning. We have been reflecting on what we can do as a company to be better. We continuously strive to create a safe space with equal kindness shown to all who walk in our door. But we recognize we can and must do better - within our shop and within our local community. We recognize the lack of diversity in our staff and in our industry. We must do better to be more inclusive. We don’t have all of the solutions right now, but will be making a set of commitments over the coming weeks on specific long-term local actions.

We recognize there is an urgent critical need to address the injustice on a national level and to that end we have made monetary contributions to organizations working directly in the fight for justice.

In our reflections, we have thought about the many wonderfully meaningful and important contributions of the Black community to our collective culture and how greatly our community would lack without them. We thank our Black friends and neighbors for all that they are and all the inherent value they bring to this community, country and world. And we stand with them in solidarity and will continue to work to make a better world.

The shop will be closed Monday in honor of Memorial Day. See you Tuesday.

During these unprecedented times, local musicians have been deeply impacted by not being able to play live, or record in the studio. We are helping our friends at Electric Company Records help these artists.

"Solo", is a collection of music written and recorded at home, in Akron, Ohio by Electric Company artists after the start of the state mandated "stay-at-home" order.

La Esperanza is a nice coffee from El Salvador rich with nuts and chocolate notes.

Proceeds from the sale of these beans supports the musicians.

Brew a cup of magic and press play (link in bio).

Pay it Forward Friday. It wasn’t an idea until this morning when one generous customer opened a tab for $50 for anyone to use. Which then inspired two others to generously contribute. We are very touched by these acts of kindness, especially at the end of a week when we could all use a reminder that there is still plenty of good in the world. @ Akron Coffee Roasters

Akron is not an easy place to own a business. There are other more lucrative markets out there. But those markets are also more volatile. One thing Akronites do really well is support the businesses they love and show up strong when times are tough. Thank you for getting us this far (nearly four years!). We love you, Akron, and know that we’ll come out on the other side of this challenge with your support. For the time being we just won’t have as much time to chill together (although speedy cups have never been our reputation). We will operate normal hours but to-go service only. Cheers.

It’s been nearly two years since our last Latte Art Throwdown but we still remember what a blast it was. Our favorite part was the great crowd who showed up to watch.

We are hosting our second throw-down this Thursday over at our new shop (@asteriskcoffeebar). Please join us to cheer on some very talented baristas as they compete with their craft. The bar will be open and we’ll have some new snacks available to keep you satiated while you watch.
