Day 6 Coffee: The Black-Owned Café Bringing Drip To Downtown Houston
The newest coffee shop in Houston is Black-owned. Day 6 Coffee Company was founded by brothers Ricardo “RJ” and Ian Wilson. The shop’s name is inspired by the Book of Genesis in The Bible.
“On the sixth day, God gave us coffee and so much more,” Ricardo told Chron. “Although plants, trees, and animals were created on the third day, God actually ‘gave’ us those creations when he created us on the sixth day. And the sixth day is said to be when God finished his creations.”
Located at 910 Prairie Street Houston, Texas 77002, Day 6 serves more than coffee classics and specialty lattes. There are baked goods, sandwiches, quiches, and kolaches on the menu
“We come from humble beginnings,” a statement reads on the company’s website. “We’re family-owned and operated, starting in the plumbing industry. There, we learned the importance of focusing on building relationships with our customers […] knowing how important the quality of the water is for the quality of our products. Providing superior products will keep our guests coming through the door, but our communal focus will create a lasting legacy and help develop a better city.”
