When we first read that our beloved @augiescoffee was being forced out of their iconic red brick building we were shook. No way, how could this be?! Our local coffee shop that became more than the top tier coffee they served, the landmark red building that is the heart of Redlands, and more than the fuel for early mornings and all nighters. @augiescoffee has become what home feels like. What all the best things about Redlands feels like. It's where we went for coffee dates when we first started dating. It's where we planned our wedding in 4 months, early in the morning and right before they closed to stay up all night. We had Augie's served at our wedding and Augies was the first place we stopped when we returned from our honeymoon. Augies is where we started planning our business and where we go to walk to for brainstorming sessions! That's why when we read the news that Augies was being forced to move and find a new home, two thoughts came to mind.
1. How can we remember the red brick building and it's people that became a part of our home and family.
2. How can we help support Augies move into their new home?
Well, we partnered with Augies and have decided to lend our talents to do a pop-up styled shoot, and what better backdrop than our beloved and iconic red brick building. On Monday from 4-8 pm we will have a table set up in Ed Hales Park where Augies will be accepting donations to go towards all the cost of building a new home to house all our new memories. Donations will also help compensate all our favorite baristas as they transition from the current location and into the future location. We will be accepting cash based donations and an Augies venmo will be set up for venmo donations. Come have us snap a picture of you, your families, friends and pets. Come be a part of Redlands history and support the future. Alone #iamaugies together #weareaugies
