Twitter: @Getchu some gear
Chris Mcauley who?
Did you know that Chris Mcauley has chickens? It’s definitely not the coolest thing about him, but it’s up there.
Chris Mcauley is the founder of Getchu Some Gear, which he launched a little under two years ago alongside his partner, Chelsea. Getchu set out to hook up marginalized coffee workers with free coffee stuff, but they’ve since expanded the scope of their work tremendously: first with Getchu a Job, which provides free resume assistance and resources for baristas… then Getchu a Grant, which earlier this year helped distribute $60,000.00 to historically marginalized coffee business owners. They also provide free coffee education, and recently roasted their own “Getchu” coffee for the very first time.
Getchu Some Gear is Chris’ “love letter to the coffee family” and this shows in everything that they do.
You might be wondering, what’s next for Chris? And the truth is, I don’t really know. Getchu Some Soap, maybe? Getchu Some Eggs? What I do know is that, whatever it is, it’s going to make the world a better place — because, like Chris says, “we’ve got us.”
This episode mentions the white, cis hetero, ableist patiarchy of the coffee industry and beyond.
