Melissa Green’s story of finding safe spaces through coffee

Happy Pride Month, Melissa! Would you mind sharing how you started a coffee brand for LGBTQ+ consumers?

Was there a pivotal moment that pushed you in that direction?

I knew I wanted to not only use this as a way to connect with people, but I wanted to provide information on real support systems out there.

And that’s when you decided to support LGBTQ+ nonprofits?

What challenges have you faced as an entrepreneur?

What’s next for Rise Above Coffee this Pride Month and beyond?
