Salvador Sanchez and his friend Chris Ortiz made a big move from Austin Texas to Lexington Kentucky to open A Cup of Commonwealth – a premium coffee joint with a pay-it-forward mentality. Through core values and principles, the coffee shop has served as a staple for giving back to the community and creating an atmosphere that attracts all types of creatives.

The shop has a wall with hundreds of coffees that were purchased by strangers for anyone who may meet the criteria on the cup, whether this requires doing a Michael Jackson dance or being enrolled in one of the local University classes. They even allow local artists to display their work on the shop walls.

Every coffee shop should take some notes from Salvador and Chris.
