WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Coffee is something many people start their morning with and National Coffee Day gives us a way to celebrate the hot drink.
In Wilmington, there are many places where you can get some of the good stuff including Port City Java, Bitty and Beau’s and the Java Dog.
National Coffee Day is about getting out there and getting one of America’s favorite drinks. However, here at Bitty and Beau’s, it’s about more than a cup of coffee.
This shop prides itself in hiring people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
There’s clearly a lot more brewing here than cups of coffee.
“We’re changing the way people with disabilities are important to people. And we’re changing the way people see other people” says Bitty and Beau’s employee Matt Dean.
Matt says he loves working at Bitty and Beau’s because of the people and the people love Matt.
Happy Coffee Day!
