You can now buy coffee with Bitcoin and other cryptocurrency options!
While the most historic purchase might have been a pizza a few years back, buying coffee with Bitcoin has become the most recent aspirational purchase.
It’s not necessarily due to a specific demand from the cryptocurrency community for that bitter, morning beverage that fuels America (although, we’re sure that day trading requires a proper dosage of caffeine.). It’s rather the idea that bitcoin would be integrated into our daily lives enough to purchase a pull of espresso, which has been an aspirational goal for many early adopters of cryptocurrencies.
The popular cryptocurrency that’s captured the hearts of techies, investors, and anarchists alike, has always been hampered by high transaction fees and long transfer times, making buying everyday items less than ideal. A few thousand more miners and a segwit integration later, we’re finally able to make that coffee purchase a reality.
And with that, Cafe Joe USA now supports the Coinbase payment option and Nano.
Coinbase Commerce, a cryptocurrency exchange and storage site, has just recently rolled out their payment integrations, with Cafe Joe USA quickly adopting the technology. Our forward-thinking approach to commerce is what has brought Israeli-based Cafe Joe to American homes, and now to crypto coffee lovers around the world.
“We are very excited to see forward-thinking companies like Cafe Joe embrace the emerging trend towards cryptocurrency as a viable way to handle transactions. This is an exciting time in the evolution of technology and the early adopters will have a leg up on the competition once blockchain hits the mainstream. “
-Pierre Kennel, CEO, Crypto Concierge
