History of Juneteenth + BeanFruit Coffee

History of Juneteenth + BeanFruit Coffee

It’s a couple of weeks later than we had hoped to release this episode, but we found the history of Juneteenth to be incredibly fascinating and we were excited to try the coffee from BeanFruit Coffee, so we thought better late than never. In this week’s episode, Jenni covers the history of Juneteenth and the end of slavery in America. We all learned surprising facts that they didn’t teach us in school about slavery, like the Emancipation Proclamation didn’t actually proclaim emancipation for enslaved people in all of the states.

Then we try a signature blend from BeanFruit Coffee out of Mississippi. BeanFruit has won a Good Food Award not once, but twice, in 2015 and 2017! We were very excited to try this coffee and to support a Black owned coffee roaster in honor of Juneteenth. Listen to find out what we think of this blend of coffees from Costa Rica and Guatemala.
