celebrating black history month

Looking for a way to support Black-owned businesses? Then head over to Amazon’s Black-owned business storefront. Dedicated to showcasing the creativity and ingenuity of Black entrepreneurs, you’ll find everything from coffee to grooming supplies to purses (and much more).

In celebration of Black History month, we’ve rounded up three Black-owned brands you can buy from on Amazon. Caribbrew works with farmers in Haiti to harvest and roast fair trade coffee beans, while Scotch Porter is elevating men’s self-care game with non-toxic, vegan products that nourish and hydrate beards. Handmade bags from Thrifty Upenyu feature less-common African fabrics in beautiful, rich colors and intricate patterns.

If a cup of coffee is your everything, start your day with Caribbrew’s Organic Haitian Coffee for the perfect full-bodied (and caffeinated) boost. Fair trade, climate-pledge friendly, and Black-owned, Caribbrew partners with small-scale farmers in Haiti to create a brew one Amazon reviewer called “the best coffee we’ve ever had.” And with good reason: this smooth medium roast will mitigate those Monday-morning blues with its hint of chocolate and nutty, rich flavor.

Get a thicker, healthier beard with Scotch Porter’s beard kit. Vegan, non-toxic, color safe, and free of phthalates and parabens, this four-piece kit — wash, conditioner, balm, and serum —not only protects your skin, but hydrates your beard with avocado and jojoba seed oils. “Perfect for tightly curled beards,” according to one reviewer, Scotch Porter will transform both your beard and self-care routine.

Specializing in less-common African prints, Thrifty Upenyu’s founder, Sheila, sews purses, cosmetics bags, head wraps, and décor in her home studio.

Perfect for holding loose change or small items, the pouch is made of hand-screen printed fabric featuring Habesha women.
