Stroma Lawson, Byron Bay.

As the Rails pig cartoon pointed out the other week, there’s no shortage of places to get a coffee in Byron.

But there’s only one place to get Good Coffee: tastes good, feels good, does good. And that’s the Coffee Box outside the Post Office in Byron. It’s a social enterprise run by the Byron Community Centre supporting disadvantaged locals to get some work experience and get back on their feet. There’s also a Pay It Forward jar, to buy a coffee for someone who’s doing it tough right now.

So next time you need your coffee fix, enjoy a good coffee for a good cause at the Coffee Box.
