Why no tipping? 

Gray Squirrel Coffee Co. has a no-tipping policy at our coffee shop. For a long time, tipping has encouraged inequities based on race, sex, class, and even the timing of a work shift. It can also create an uncomfortable sense of obligation for customers. We believe that our employees are deserving of a fair wage, no matter what. So instead of accepting tips, we we choose to price our menu in a way that allows us to support our staff by paying a fair, livable wage. You can trust that our baristas will do their best to make you a great drink, and they are always glad to hear your thanks and appreciation.
