While practicing law at the same law firm, Amanda-Jane Thomas and Shanita Nicholas became friends. Eventually, the two women also became business partners, their dreams and passions converging into the creation of Sip & Sonder . . .Established in 2017, Sip & Sonder’s flagship location was the first specialty coffee house in Inglewood, California. With a coffee roaster, creative space, and multi-purpose event space on site, Sip & Sonder is much more than your ordinary coffee shop—we are a Black women-owned coffee house and roastery where coffee, community, and culture truly connect.
‘Sonder’ is the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own. As an entrepreneurial and creative hub, we are a space where creatives, entrepreneurs, freelancers, curators, and everyone in between can simply exist, grab a cup of coffee, connect, create, and put sonder into action. Through our mindfully curated coffee program, we invite our communities to be part of a global conversation with a product that is sustainable, traceable, and intentional.
BE YOU WITH US, wherever you are.
For the Community. For the Culture.
