Our Featured Charity
Kate Funk (and her kitty sidekick AC) is our featured charity for June 2017. AC the cat is one amazing kitty and the star of Kate Funk's photography business. Early this year he had a near death medical scare. After some strange behavior and not eating for 24 hours he was rushed to the vet, but they weren't quite able to pinpoint what was wrong. They decided the only option was emergency exploratory surgery. Sadly, the biopsy results from the surgery showed he had a very severe case of Pancreatitis and other complications that kept arising. All of this left Kate with an enormous pile of medical bills. Your purchase helps support AC the cat and his road to recovery. To follow AC's progress please check out: @thekatefunk

An adventure that began in Italy 1883. Our brand builds on what John M. Taranto began when he arrived in New York City in 1912. Born in 1883 in Alicudi, Italy he was the oldest of 12 children. In 1927 John (Giovanni) and his brothers opened the Taranto Brothers Grocery store in upstate New York.
Carrying on the Taranto family legacy is Ian, the great-grandson of Salvatore Angelo Taranto. Ian is an upstate New York native and sponsored athlete.

ChickenSwitch Coffee's unusual name has its origins in both of our founders past careers as bike messengers. The term 'ChickenSwitch' was used to describe a certain bicycle mechanism. Since the love of bicycles has been central to their life stories they thought it only fitting to combine it with their love of coffee. The rest is history.
