What We Did

Back of the Yards Coffee is a coffee roaster and shop located in Chicago's 'Back of the Yard' neighborhood. BOTY's coffee coffee is selected from the finest beans available from around the world and sourced in a socially and environmentally responsible way. They have developed a social impact fund which donates $1 of every bag of coffee sold toward scholarships and funding for young people in Back of the Yards. The social impact fund is meant to fund youth programs, education and scholarships as well as encouraging peace within the community. Their web application was built using a Ruby on Rails, React, jQuery, SendGrid, Postgres db, Stripe api and Heroku. Link to live site: www.backoftheyardscoffee.com
