What is A 2nd Cup?

A 2nd Cup was established in 2012 to raise awareness of human trafficking issues in Houston—and to develop resources that help create a second chance for survivors.

The brainchild of Erica Raggett, A 2nd Cup was always meant to be more than a coffee shop. It was envisioned as a place where people could organize, collaborate, make an impact—or just make themselves at home in a modern café setting. We offer gourmet drinks, knowledgeable baristas and a spacious, relaxed atmosphere—all centrally located in the heart of The Heights.

We’re proud to offer a space that brings people together. We’re proud to be a force for change in Houston. And we’re proud to serve coffee with a cause.

Why they are Awesome

  • A 2nd Cup works alongside a variety of anti-trafficking organizations and movements to raise awareness, generate interest, and engage the public to take action.
