ABOUT

A decade ago, we fell in love with the coffee and granola at a little hippy cafe in rural Wyoming.  As the years passed, that place became our barometer for warmth and a sense of community…for badass coffee and amazing comfort food.…and now we have found the perfect spot for our own coffee and sweets - Lefty’s Coffee Co., in Los Olivos.

 

Lefty’s is inspired by the ideals from the hippy and punk movement - peace, love, equality, acceptance and respect for every human being regardless of age, race, gender, orientation, background or physical ability.….and breaking boundaries, rebelling against the status quo, thinking for oneself and letting ones creative spirit fly.

 

This mash-up of spirit is about action and intention toward the sustainability of our planet. The choices we make at Lefty’s - how food & drink are sourced, processed and transported, and how we run a coffee shop - are focused on the idea of local, organic and small-scale.

 

Our mission at Lefty’s is to keep the planet healthy and be leaders in good will for all.  We support those who may be under-resourced, disadvantaged or marginalized by focusing on equal opportunity, just compensation and the benevolent participation and empowerment for employees, patrons, and purveyors alike. We focus equally on staff, customers, community and the environment.

 

We choose suppliers based on their like-mindedness and commitment to fair trade and organic sourcing and materials for our retail space that are ‘green’, implementing practices and products that reduce greenhouse gases. Our ethical and progressive approach to business is defined by our overriding principle of sustainability and inclusion.

 

We believe that there is power in building community and being stewards of the environment, so we all collectively reap the benefits and enjoy the the pleasures of a good cup of coffee!
