Business Response Spotlight: Chocolate Fish Coffee Roasters

Chocolate Fish's owner, Edie Baker, took a few minutes to update us on how her business has responded to COVID-19 and the changes in community need. Local coffee shop and retailer, Chocolate Fish, has adjusted their business to operate virtually and philanthropically in response to COVID-19. Chocolate Fish has shifted their operations online, allowing them to not have to cut any products or reduce their menu at this time. The shift to online ordering has allowed for curbside pickup, walk-in and take-out, and at-home delivery. Additionally, Chocolate Fish is promoting a fundraiser to provide coffee for local healthcare workers.

Individuals can donate on Chocolate Fish’s website for as a little as $3.50 for a cup of coffee or an entire carafe (20 cups or more). Monday, March 30th was their first drop off of 15 gallons of brewed coffee to Mercy General Hospital. On Tuesday, March 31, they dropped off coffee at UC Davis Medical Center and plan to continue to do this as long as people continue to donate towards this initiative. Providing coffee will help medical professionals who are working hard and long hours in the hospital. It also ensures the sustainability of Chocolate Fish.

Chocolate Fish is still open in East Sacramento and Land Park for take-out orders only. They have introduced online ordering for curbside pickup as well as walk-in and takeout. Lastly, individuals can order online for coffee bean delivery to your home.

A Chocolate Fish is a fish shaped confection indigenous to New Zealand given out as a “Thank You” for a good deed. Consider contributing to Chocolate Fish’s initiative as a way to support and  say “Thank You” to this Coffee Roaster for their leadership and commitment to our community.
