Mia Moss, Black Coffee, Fort Worth
“I am Mia Moss, and I am the owner of Black Coffee. I worked at Seattle’s Best Coffee right out of high school. I was able to meet so many people, and I fell in love with coffee at the same time. I didn’t realize how coffee could bridge gaps and create relationships until I was older. It was very intriguing, and I knew I wanted to work in coffee.”
“We prepare traditional coffee beverages to the highest standards and serve those beverages in a community that has been overlooked when it comes to the growth and expansion of Fort Worth. We pride ourselves in being the only black-owned coffee shop in Fort Worth and having the privilege to serve the east side, which historically has been a predominantly African American community. Our goal is to enrich the community, providing a needed service to a neglected part of the city.”Shop at Black Coffee → Learn More About Mia's Story →
