Covid-19 and how we are staying safe

We know that the COVID-19 outbreak has affected many of you already in daily life, and these are uncertain times for everyone in our specialty coffee community and beyond.

I’m writing to let you know that our commitment to do everything possible to provide you with the best coffees, and to support our partners at origin, especially those harvesting, processing and shipping coffees right now.

We are continually monitoring and adhering to all official recommendations, and taking additional steps, to ensure our team is healthy and able to continue their work and safely provide coffee service to our customers.
<div>

Public health is extremely important to us, and it is our duty to help ensure the public safety of our customers and staff. In that regard, below is what we at the Caffe are doing to keep everyone safe, as well as some helpful information to help keep you and your loved ones safer.
<div dir=”auto”>- We are encouraging all employees to work from home whenever possible and our employees have our full support at this time.</div>
<div dir=”auto”>- We require that all employees who exhibit signs of respiratory illness, fever, or cough to stay at home.</div>
<div dir=”auto”>- We are supplying all of our employees with disinfectant &amp; hand sanitizer to be used constantly throughout the day.</div>
<div dir=”auto”>- We have implemented the use of color-coded gloves for handling different aspects of the business and provide a barrier.</div>
<div dir=”auto”>- We are also mandating thorough hand washing, and encouraging/reminding all employees to avoid touching their faces.</div>
<div dir=”auto”>- We will not be holding any in-person company meetings, gatherings, or training exercises until the situation has subsided.</div>
<div dir=”auto”>- We are diligent in sanitizing every touchable surface in our operations.</div>
<div dir=”auto”>- We are not conducting any public cuppings, nor group staff cuppings. This includes the Carrboro Coffee Roasters Public Workshops that are currently suspended.
<div dir=”auto”>- We have switched to serving in paper products as take-away only and will be restructuring our hours.</div>
<div dir=”auto”>- We are strategizing for next stages of potentially adding curb-side pickup.</div>
Remember to wash hands frequently, avoid touching the face, and practice good general hygiene, including creating the Spatial Distancing to diminish potential contamination.
Remember, the best way to deal with this situation is to follow real, verifiable science and the CDC. There is a lot of misinformation out there right now. Stay diligent, healthy, support local businesses, and stay caffeinated.
<h2>Wash Your Hands Often</h2>
Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
<h2>Follow Good Respiratory Hygiene</h2>
Please cover your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or a tissue when you cough or sneeze.
<h2>Clean Phones, Etc.</h2>
Use alcohol wipes (60% or higher) to wipe down common use items, often handled directly with your hands.
<h2>Follow Social/Spatial Distancing</h2>
Keep a minimum of 6 feet of distance between individuals to mitigate potential transmission
