REVIEW: Sojourner’s Coffee House gives coffee and kindness to community

Sojourner’s Coffee House

Sojourner’s Coffee House may look like your typical coffee shop, but how you pay for your coffee is not how you would in any other cafe or restaurant.  

Its pricing structure operates solely off donations, which fund resources and events for those in the military, veterans and their families, as well as cover expenses for the shop. 

The non-profit shop has a list of suggested donations next to the items they serve, but you can donate as much as you’d like. 

I recently tried one of their specialty lattes called “The Sojourner,” which is a Caramel Mocha Latte. I ordered mine with almond milk, but you can order your drink with the option of dairy or various types of non-dairy milk. 

One thing I liked about Sojourner’s is the variety of non-dairy options that they had without the extra charge. They had choices of oat milk, almond milk and soy milk. 

The Sojourner was delicious. The almond milk worked well with both the caramel and mocha flavor, and the espresso was strong but had a great flavor to it as well. 

Set in the Mapleridge Center, the environment was calm. They had spaces where you could sit and catch up with a friend or on some homework, whether that would be at a table or on a couch, and the walls are filled with artwork to admire. 

If you are looking to support a great cause while grabbing yourself something to eat or drink, give Sojourner’s a try.
