Oak Cliff Coffee ‘Voter Card’ Campaign!

We have officially begun our new ‘Voter Card Campaign’ to get fresh local coffee into your favorite establishments.  Last delivery we distributed about 400 of these voter cards to our subscribers.  I wanted to write a brief Q&A to let others know about it in case anyone wanted to get in on the campaign who hasn’t received the cards.

What is the ‘Voter Card’?

It is a card that allows you to have a voice on the coffee that is being served in your favorite restaurants, coffee shops, etc.  Simply leave the card with the server or manager of your favorite establishments to cast your vote.  It also helps us to continue to get the word out about our Fresh Roasted Oak Cliff Coffee.  We have a very loyal customer base who already has responded very well to the campaign and we are grateful!   

Why the ‘Voter Card’ campaign?

As we have begun talking with restaurants and other businesses in the area about serving and selling our coffee, the initial response has been very positive with the people who actually work there.  One of the obstacles that we have found, with some places that we presumed to be truly locally run (but it turns out they were not), is that when the owner or operator is not from the area, they have a more difficult time seeing the value of better and fresher local products. 

Of course, as customers we see the value of local and fresh products, but we do not necessarily have a way of letting our favorite restaurants and stores know what we want when our only option is what they give us.  So, this is a way to give our customers a means to let the business owners/operators  know that they want local (and better) coffee. 

In fact the whole campaign was actually an idea of one our customers, and (although I cannot take credit for it) I thought it was brilliant so we rolled it out as soon as we could.  If nothing more it’s a fun way for our customers to express their opinion in our neighborhood.

I didn’t get the cards, how can I get in on the campaign?  (or I just need more cards…)

Just send us an email at info@oakcliffcoffee.com or call us at 214.948.5559 and give us your address and we will deliver you some voter cards on our next coffee delivery date.  And please let me know if you have any questions about the campaign.

Coffeehouse in Oak Cliff… Just For One Morning

Oak Cliff Coffee Roasters, Ann’s Health Food Center & Market and Bike Friendly Oak Cliff

To promote Ann’s Market now selling Oak Cliff Coffee, we will be giving out free cups of our fresh roasted coffee this Saturday morning (May 9th) from 9 a.m. – 11 a.m.  We want to support Ann’s as well as give you the opportunity to hang out with other locals and enjoy a good cup of fresh roasted coffee. 

Let’s make Ann’s a local coffeehouse for a couple of hours.  Come and get a cup of coffee and try out some of Ann’s great breakfast sandwiches and wraps at their cafe.  Also, check out their grocery store which features organic and local products. 

To encourage all the Bike Friendly folks, Ann’s will be offering a $1 off any entrée item or $5 off a $30 grocery purchase, if you ride your bicycle.    

Never been to Ann’s?  It’s only 2.5 miles south of Bishop Arts at 2634 S Zang Blvd.

Events This Weekend in Oak Cliff

We will be donating and serving our coffee at the King’s Highway Conservation District Fundraiser this Saturday, May 2nd, 6 p.m. at Suite 200 on Davis St.  Come support King’s Highway and enjoy some good coffee. 

The 2nd Bolsa’s Farmer’s Market is happening this Sunday, May 3rd.  We’ll be serving up samples and selling bags of fresh-roasted coffee.  Come see us and the other local vendors that will be there.  Last time it was a big hit and it should be again, if we can keep the rain away. 

Hope to see you there.
