Beans for Puerto Rico Brings Much-Needed Coffee to the Island

Beans for Puerto Rico Brings Much-Needed Coffee to the Island

Beans for Puerto Rico was created by Stephen Hoppe of San Juan craft-cocktail and beer bar La Penúltima , Xavier Alexander from Chicago’s Metric Coffee , and Kali Solack of San Juan specialty-coffee shop Café Regina . Stephen, a Chicago native who uses Metric Coffee in his bar’s cold-brew and drip program, says the idea came about during a conversation he had with Xavier shortly after the storm. “We were talking about the situation on the island and I mentioned that I had heard from friends in the coffee industry here about the destruction of the local crop and how availability of beans was going to be a big issue once roasters run out of the remainder of the green beans that had already been harvested,” Stephen says. “Xavier mentioned that Metric would be willing to donate a bit of coffee, and that potentially other roasters would be interested as well.”
