The town of Three Rivers, Michigan, has a population of less than 8,000 people. Many of the town's citizens get their morning cup of joe in a former power pump house, where the Rocky River runs right underneath — enter L.A.'s Coffee Cafe.
L.A.'s Coffee Cafe was founded in 2000 by Leslie Robbins, her husband, Jerry Robbins, and Aimee Robbins. It was always Leslie's dream to open her own coffee shop, so when her dream became a reality, they decided to name it after her — L.A. stands for "Leslie Ann."
The power pump house turned coffeehouse has been selling Death Wish Coffee for about three years. It's served hot and iced, and the shop also sells 1-lb bags so the residents of Three Rivers can make the world's strongest coffee in their office or kitchen.
And on the morning of July 29, L.A.'s Coffee Cafe will host Riki Rachtman, Lea Vendetta, and Riki's Ride to raise money for Stop Soldier Suicide. Riki and Lea are traveling the United States on a motorcycle to raise money for this veteran organization. The organization provides mental health counseling, housing assistance, emergency financial aid, alternative therapies, and more.
"Stop Soldier Suicide is an awesome cause," Aimee said. "We at L.A.'s Coffee Cafe stand beside our veterans ... They fought for us and we should be taking care of them."
L.A.'s Coffee Cafe has already raised more than $200 for the event through Facebook donations and in-person donations at the shop. If you're local to Three Rivers, MI, head over to L.A.'s Coffee Cafe on the morning of July 29 to meet Riki, enjoy some Death Wish Coffee, and donate to the cause!
