Our Story

For the majority of my young adulthood, I was like most people in their early 20’s- go to school and get a degree. I went onto college without thinking much about the future. I was going through the motions and was comfortable in the routine of being a student. I performed well and got good grades, but I never enjoyed it. I always struggled with being happy during that time.

 I thought going to school and getting a degree was the only way to make it in the adult world. I always knew I wanted to create my own thing and have autonomy over my schedule, but I had no idea how or what my niche would be.

 Fast forward to 2020, I got rejected from grad school. As we all know, 2020 was a tough year for everyone in some way. On top of it all, I fell to the darkest place of my life. I lost my purpose, and had no idea what was next. I felt like a failure.

 As time went on, things became clearer of why things happened the way they did. I was hanging out with my boyfriend one night, discussing how I want to start my own e-commerce business, but unsure of what.

 He mentioned coffee. Everyone loves it, and it’s not something that is going to go away any time soon. He mentioned my pet rabbit, Cookie, would make a great mascot, and to have it be around her.

 I have been an avid coffee drinker for my entire life. Always loved it and always will. But I wanted to take it one step further. I wanted to tie my love for coffee while bringing awareness to rabbits being one of the most surrendered pets in shelters, and the #1 test subjects for cosmetic testing. Not only would our coffee be fresh and delicious, but give Cookie and other rabbits a voice.

 With your purchase, you won’t be only be supporting a small business with a love for coffee and bunnies, but you will give our furry rabbit friends a voice. Our vision at Binky Bun Coffee is to merge the love of coffee and the love for our furry friend’s well-being.
