Canteen partners with BLK & Bold coffee brand to launch barista recipe book

Dec. 16, 2022
The holiday-inspired barista book will give 100% of proceeds to BLK & Bold’s For Our Youth program that supports nonprofits.

BLK & Bold, the first Black-owned nationally distributed coffee brand, announced the launch of its first-ever barista book, "Recipes for Impact," in partnership with Canteen, the largest vending retail provider in the U.S.

The coffee recipe book that was carefully curated with the holidays will dedicate 100% of its proceeds to BLK & Bold’s social initiative, For Our Youth, a program that supports nonprofit organizations with missions that focus on uplifting underserved youth.

The collaborative recipe book explores the zest of BLK & Bold’s distinguished flavors, profiles and coffee flight. From the warm highlights of toffee in the brand’s Brighter Days light roast to the nuances of caramel in the Rise & GRND medium roast, each recipe was crafted to help create memories and traditions for any season.

“The holidays are always a special time and entwined with notions of family and community, we hope that everyone is able to enjoy these recipes for years to come with their loved ones,” Christine Woodward, chief marketing officer of Canteen, said in the announcement. “The whole team is extremely proud of how this book turned out and we are even more thrilled that we are able to partner with BLK & Bold to give back to their social initiative.”

The For Our Youth program includes 14 pledge partners throughout the nation, including the states of California, New York, Florida, Iowa, Pennsylvania, Texas, Georgia, Minnesota, Virginia, and Illinois, all dedicated to helping, inspiring and educating the youth.

BLK & Bold is a B Corp certified brand that is currently a top-selling coffee brand on Amazon and at Target. A mission-driven brand from inception, BLK & Bold’s portfolio now features eight flavors, with over 25 products and 14 tea varieties.

“We are beyond excited to partner with Canteen for something that continues our mission to turn a daily ritual of enjoying a cup of coffee into something for the community and a way of giving back,” BLK & Bold's co-founder and CEO Pernell Cezar, said in the announcement. “Being able to incorporate the essence of community is vital to us in everything we do, especially for the holiday season. ‘Recipes for Impact’ has allowed the team to bring something new and creative to the table while still staying true to our values.”
