What does Pride mean to EC?

Updated: Apr 28, 2023

As an openly Gay Male, Pride is more than just brand lip service & Marketing, it's personal.

Growing up in a European household, Being Gay was somewhat taboo and rarely spoken about within the family. From a very young age, I knew that finding & being a part of "My Community" meant a great deal, and became my north star in times of loneliness & self-doubt.

To have people that "Got Me" was an awakening & showed me that life & people come in all shapes, sizes & identities, & that being yourself means more than appeasing others.

It's a great privilege for me to use my business & platform as an aid to giving back to a community that has given so much to me.

To show my support & gratitude, For the month of February I will donate $5 from every sale to Pride Foundation Australia (see below to read about all the great work the Pride Foundation does).

Thank you for all your support & generosity. Be yourself, it's a liberating feeling.

Nic Salerno,

Owner & Coffee Enthusiast
