Ian Happ creates ‘Quarantine Coffee’ with Connect Roasters to aid COVID relief
Staying busy during MLB’s shutdown hasn’t been an issue for Ian Happ.
The versatile Cub has been active on social media, playing tennis, working out, hanging out with teammates and roommates Nico Hoerner, Dakota Mekkes and Zack Short and playing in MLB’s Players Tournament on MLB The Show, reaching the semifinals. The quartet started a podcast dubbed, “The Compound,” which has been a hit with Cubs fans and baseball fans as a whole.
Now, Happ is using his platform to give back.
Happ partnered with Connect Roasters, a coffee roasting company that sends part of its sales to community organizations where it grows its coffee, to give back to COVID-19 relief efforts.
Happ and Connect Roasters have released a line of coffee, Quarantine Coffee, where part of the sales will go directly to COVID-19 relief efforts. Each bag of coffee sells for $15 and $3 from each bag sold goes to COVID-19 relief charities.
“I’m very excited about this project,” Ian Happ said on an Instagram Live announcing the deal. “They have a great product. They’ve been a perfect partner through this entire thing. I’m so excited to give back and see what we can do to help the COVID relief efforts.”
Pre-orders for Quarantine Coffee began Monday and are available at CoffeeforCovid.com. The coffee is a medium roast, single origin coffee from Guatemala.
