Guest baristas help draw attention to Northstar Coffee’s mission
North Star Coffee, an enterprise of Ontario ARC, is featuring “celebrity” baristas every morning during its open house week, March 11-15.
The coffeehouse at 1880 Rochester Road (Route 332), will welcome the town supervisors of Victor and Canandaigua, along with other guest baristas during the special event. Each day will also feature a special coffee drink concocted to reflect the tastes of that day’s guest pourer, from a sugar-free caramel delight to cherry cheesecake lattes. Price specials on drinks and discounts on coffee to brew at home will also be offered every day through March 16.
“Our Open House Week is a great opportunity for our community to come together and acknowledge the men and women supported by Ontario ARC who work hard every day at North Star to reach their potential and let their personalities shine. By each of our guest baristas volunteering their time to roll up their sleeves and step into the shoes of our staff for a couple hours in recognition of community inclusion, it’s just a special way to acknowledge the great businesses and partners we have in the community with a social conscience,” said Michelle Jungermann, director of meaningful activities at Ontario ARC.
North Star Coffee provides employment opportunities for people with disabilities or other challenges.
More information on the celebrity barista schedule is available on the organization’s Facebook and web pages.
