Farley's September News
September Newsletter

Need to get the crew together?

Farley's in San Francisco and Farley's East have ample space for evening events. If you are interested in hosting a meeting or event at either location, let us know and we will work out the details. Our roots are in supporting the community and what better way to do so then offer free meeting/event space to groups and non-profits. If your organization is a for profit entity, we would be happy to host you as well and can work out an affordable option. We hope to see you at the cafes soon!

Love and Community,


Coffee Corner    



Hey everybody!

We have some exciting coffee and/or tea news coming up! We've had our seasonal blend of Ethiopia, Uganda and Sumatra beans through the summer, and soon enough we'll be changing it up to bring some new coffee adventures to your palette as we make it through the last of the heat waves and coast into the fall. Stay tuned for more news on our blend change soon!

We're also going to be utilizing our new, spacious retail shelves at Farley's East to offer some new retail items, in support of your home coffee and tea brewing needs. Keep your eyes peeled for some new stuff to buy, and let us know if there's anything you'd like to see stocked, we're happy to listen.

Stay cool out there!
 Artist of the Month


Artist: Fawnee Evnochides 

In my work, I usually use acrylic paint along with found objects--which could be paper, plastic or any other material. My painting is expressionistic; through the act of painting, I explore basic existential questions and emotions. My process is intuitive and direct. I rarely plan a painting, but just allow it to happen in the moment, almost accidentally. I find the act of painting and the physical nature of paint itself to be endlessly mysterious and transcendental.


Artist: Amy Larkin Fields


Amy Larkin Fields is a painter based in San Francisco. Becoming a full-time parent and being immersed in the realm of home life has greatly influenced Amy’s subject matter. Her latest series of watercolor paintings called Domesticity focuses on the mundane and relentless domestic chores in life.  

Whether painting with acrylic, with watercolor, or simply drawing with pencil on paper, Amy’s goal is to render the spirit of the subject, be it a lone artichoke, a squashed water bottle, a peacefully sleeping child, or an endless chore required by daily life. She strives to recreate the sensations she felt at a certain moment in time on paper or canvas. Forms, colors, and the emotions they conjure up provide the inspiration for her artwork. 

Amy’s artwork can be found at www.amylarkinfields.com.

  • The Challenged Athletes Foundation (C-A-F) is a non-profit that supports physically challenged athletes with financial grants, mentoring and training so they can get involved – and stay involved – in sports.
  • Over the past 23 years, the Challenged Athletes Foundation has raised in excess of $70 million and satisfied over 11,000 funding requests from physically challenged athletes in all 50 states and 32 countries around the world. 
  • In 2017, CAF distributed 2,098 grants to challenged athletes totaling $3.7 million. 
  • The funding and support provided by the Challenged Athletes Foundation can be the difference between “getting into the game” and being left on the sidelines.
  • The Challenged Athletes Foundation funds the purchase of expensive adaptive equipment (like running prosthetics, racing chairs and handcycles) which can cost as much as $30,000. More often than not, these costs are not covered by conventional medical insurance.
