About UmeshisoShop

Sales 15,846
On Etsy since 2013

Welcome to Umeshiso

Thank you so much for visiting my shop! My name is Umeko. I've worked in specialty coffee for 14 years. As a queer, mixed race, nonbinary person, I've often felt out of place in my industry. I hope this shop will help others like me to feel more comfortable and at home in the world of coffee!

Umeshiso celebrates: BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) | nonbinary and trans folks | disabled folks | women | femmes | butches | sex workers | fat folks | intersex folks | allies | and those who hold intersecting identities.

We don't need to fit one specific template to have a place in coffee, in our lives and in the world. So I wanted to create objects that we can carry with us, to remind us every day of our brilliance and our worth.

To make this space welcoming for everyone, everything is priced on a sliding scale. Just pay the amount that is comfortable for you.

I hope you enjoy! We're all in this together 🌈💕🕊
