Sustainable Coffee | DAYDRINK w/ Ian Castillo

Ian Castillo is a co-owner of Daydrink, a coffee shop that gives a damn. He joined the team as a co-owner in 2020, after experiencing the thoughtfulness and passion that went into operating Daydrink. He likes the idea that he can build a sustainability-focused company in the middle of Iowa and still make a global impact. Since Daydrink has only used glass jars for to-go and retail containers, he has helped reduce single-use plastic in his community. He also hopes to honor the origins of the historic building that houses Daydrink’s second location, which was the original Iowa City Co-Op. Ian is passionate about coffee, community, and creativity. He is always looking for ways to improve his customer experience and his products. He believes that coffee is more than just a drink, it is a way of connecting with people and making a difference in the world.
