New Butler business combines coffee and job opportunities for those with disabilities
Terry Kaiserman and Nadine Tripodi have combined coffee and employment opportunities for people with disabilities through a nonprofit recently opened in Butler.
Butler Coffee Lab, at 113 East Cunningham St., serves as a manufacturing facility for HotPods — a single-brew pod similar to Keurig K-Cups — for a wide variety of coffee, tea and lemon drink recipes.
The nonprofit sells 36 flavors, many with distinctive twists. Some include honey or cinnamon. Others include turmeric, reishi mushrooms and Carolina Reaper peppers.
From the Cunningham Street location, the staff produces the HotPods, which can be purchased in person from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays or at butlercoffeelab.com. Customers also can enjoy a freshly brewed pod while visiting the shop.
To apply for a position at Butler Coffee Lab or to purchase HotPods, contact Kaiserman at firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit the website www.butlercoffeelab.com.
