actualjen There are highs and lows in everyone's life. We seldom talk about the lows and are often embarrassed by them.
This year has been no exception for me. I've been pretty private about certain things and this is one of them. I've taken the stares and side glances at the grocery store and I've ignored them as I pull out my WIC coupons. The huffing and puffing of those behind me in line and the flush I feel in my cheeks while checking out is very real.
I know what it's like to not have much. To scrape pennies together. To barter, reuse, and stitch.
This is my opportunity to give back.
If you have a current WIC card and you come to my spot (400 w rich inside Dinin Hall) I will give you 20% off a cup, as well as, one free refill.
Also, on yoga Saturdays (8am on the 2nd and 4th saturday every month) you can take the class for free.
Let's throw each other a rope, Columbus, and climb out together!

  •   janalmaguer Thanks for that! I was a single mom for 5 years and had to do WIC and Medicaid. I did what I had to do for my daughter and you are doing the same. I remember those huffy people in line. Just remember they don't know you or your situation. You are a hard working lady and a great mom! 3h

actualjen Sometimes I don't know what I'm doing when it comes to a certain farm or batch. Sometimes the roaster is temperamental. Sometimes I'm too tired. Sometimes the days are long and the rewards are few.
Then, you get something like this.
Something perfect and beautiful.
Something I'm willing to put things on the line for because I believe in it. I believe you deserve the best coffee even when I am not 100%.
Follow me as I attempt what few have done before.
Opening a coffee venture on a budget of less than $1,000.
Starting next Monday at 400 W Rich St. Inside Dinin Hall. 7am.
After the year I've had with the unexpected early arrival of my son I've decided that this is the year of risk taking. This is the year I pursue my love of coffee and community. I owe it to you, myself, and my tough kiddo.
Let's do this! #blackcoffee #specialtycoffee #400wrich #roaster #dininhall #momlife

actualjen Reserve your spot for yoga inside Actual pop up café! June 28th at 8am. Actualbrewing.com (under the products tab) enjoy the patio after class while sipping on a pour over or order a french press for the table. Then at 11am walk over to the 400 W Rich farmers market. Just around the corner on the street. We have a parking lot! We'll also have a local baker on site with extra goodies. What's not to love? @actualbrewing #actualbrewing @kellyortman @callorcryhollo @bbysupastar #buttergirlbakery #yoga #asseenincolumbus #yogaeverydamnday #400wrich #dininhall #franklinton 3w

  •   kaufman183 Voilà! Cindy and Jamie set it and forget it at The Home Shopping Network's third launch of the newly pioneered-solar powered-GPS infused Rotisserie cooker. Both hosts had a blast and even took some time to create a blooper real. A record setting 233 cookers were sold in just under one hour. Let's toast to these HSN Sales Legends for their record setting performance! @ksynek @kohlworld @j_burnzz @beebs204 @mrelbow 4w
