After delivering Braille menus to Dirt Coffee, Rebecca was the first to put one to use.

Here are a couple of pics taken this morning at the Dirt Coffee Bar in downtown Littleton. Dirt is a nonprofit operation dedicated to employment for people with Autism and we knew we had a lot of values in common when they called us to ask about Braille menus and board games for the shop a month before it opened. There’s nothing like a Braille menu!

This morning we delivered two copies of the menu in Braille … and of course we had to try out their coffee and hot chocolate!

Here’s a short clip from dirtcoffee.org

Dirt is on a mission to bring you quality crafted coffee, food & drink while employing & empowering individuals with autism.  … From the ground up, our shop will go further to cultivate a culture of acceptance, inclusion, and opportunity

Dirt Coffee managers wanted both inclusivity and a relaxed, inviting atmosphere, so provide Braille board games and playing cards. Steve and Dan learned never to bet against Rebecca in Crazy Eights.

Some games we can adapt for ourselves. Rebecca tosses her bean bag toward the sound of Dan’s cane tapping behind the hole.
