I love cup from Above's story, you see Adam is a disability Support worker and his dream for Cup From Above is to make it that place where there are no barriers of prejudice everyone is welcome and equal. Passionate about his work amongst the disabled community it shines through this humble little shop. Art work donated by local artists line the wall which you can purchase with proceeds going towards buying instruments for the students of Aspley Special School. There is also a donation jar for this and Cup From Above also hold live music nights to help raise money for those instruments.
I was excited to be told that also next week a talented artist Adam works with as a support worker would be exhibiting his art for a month long. I was also invited to come and meet Peter Rowe and his mother Betty and it was a pretty humbling experience to have the opportunity to meet someone so amazing.
While I was invited back I also got to meet Chris the barista of the shop. Chris is just as warm as Adam and even attentively listened to Ruby's queries about how they made the latte art. Chris even went so far as to let her behind the counter so he could give her a mini lesson on how a hot cup of jo is made. He even let her sprinkle her own baby cino which got some extra browny points from her. It's things like this that make Cup From Above seem like that home away from home, a place you can just catch up with friends without any kind of pretension.
