Built by Torani, CoffeeisOpen.com is an online directory designed to help coffee consumers find you! It shows your customers what shops are open AND what sort of services you are offering amidst COVID (i.e. Drive-thru, curbside pickup, Joe Mobile Ordering, staff is wearing PPE, selling groceries, etc…). This is open to ANY café, whether they are a Torani customer or not! Registering only takes a minute and costs nothing. This platform simply exists to serve the independent coffee community.
