As our world continues to be turned upside down due to the coronavirus pandemic, local businesses continue to step up and help where they can.
Two St. Petersburg-based beverage companies have teamed up to offer free coffee to those workers particularly affected by COVID-19: first responders, hospital employees and hospitality workers.
Made Coffee, which produces canned cold brew and other canned coffee drinks, and Intermezzo Coffee & Cocktails, a cocktail bar and coffee spot, are offering free cases of Made’s canned coffee starting today.
Made Coffee posted on its social media accounts March 19 that they have “partnered with Intermezzo Coffee & Cocktails to give back to first responders, hospital employees, and hospitality workers. Starting TODAY, you are eligible for a free case of MADE coffee to pick up at Intermezzo until we are out — just bring proof of employment.”
If you’re in one of these industries, head to Intermezzo Coffee & Cocktails, 1111 Central Ave. in St. Petersburg, where you can get a free case as long as they’re available.
