Deaf businessmen open coffee shop to bring awareness to community

By Christy Millweard, KVUE
summarized by Abby Wilson, Staff Writer

Two entrepreneurs in Austin, Texas just opened their very own coffee shop called Pepperbox Coffee. What makes this story unique is that the two businessmen are deaf, and the people who work for them are deaf too. Mario Essig, one of the owners, says him and his colleague both had a passion for coffee, which is how the idea of opening the shop came about. With this coffee shop, they want to offer employment to people within the deaf and hard of hearing community because they know firsthand how difficult finding work can be. In addition, they hope to grow the public's exposure and awareness of the deaf community. The shop has been a success so far, accumulating regulars that stop by multiple days a week to support the small business.
