Work experiences tend not to be karmically fulfilling, and while we’re not saying that’ll be different at Throughgood, you’ll definitely be getting good karma by association. The shop works to better the lives of others “through good” coffee (get it?), and the folks behind it have been serving hot meals to homeless women and men in Downtown Houston for over 25 years, eventually founding the Temenos Community Development Corporation to provide housing to previously homeless people. A portion of your Amaya Roasting drip and chai latte will help with that, and you can also enjoy it with some sunshine out on the patio.
Features like printing services and built-in laptop nooks with outlets set this small, under-the-radar cafe apart from the flashier pack, though the local artwork and soulful jams in the background make it -- as does the local artwork and soulful jams pumping softly in the background. Fuel up with dirty chais, double shot coffees, breakfast sandwiches, and baked goodies, and then get back to business.
