Enderly Coffee locally roasts their fair trade coffee beans on Charlotte’s West Side and they exist to bring social justice to one of the most disenfranchised areas of Charlotte. We think picking gifts with purpose is a terrific way to honor the spirit of the season, so we endorse picking up coffee beans or mugs for your family, friends, clients and coworkers from their online store or at other local markets!
