Meet Pernell & Rod

A lifetime friendship, shared values, and an immeasurable love for coffee & tea serve as the foundation for BLK & Bold Specialty Beverages. Co-founders, Pernell & Rod created this company with the desire to unite coffee and tea lovers worldwide through a common interest of investing in community, specifically for the youth. Pernell & Rod believe that if children are the future, then they should be equipped with resources to manifest their potential.

With that philosophy, BLK & Bold pledges 5% of its gross profits (revenue) to nonprofit organizations across America that are aligned to pouring into children the confidence, exposure, and guidance for them to be the best version of themselves.

Coffee for you. Impact for our youth.
