- Gabrielle Union gave fans insight into her morning cup of coffee.
- The star shared that she uses Chicago French Press—her favorite coffee brand—in a new Instagram post.
- The actress encouraged followers to shop small, Black-owned businesses this Black Friday, and dished on all of her small-business picks.
The holiday season means we’re spending way more time under piles of fleece blankets sipping on something warm while online shopping for the best Black Friday deals. And it sounds like actress Gabrielle Union is right there with us. The 49-year-old shared a post to her Instagram calling out her go-to coffee brand she’ll be shopping for this Black Friday: Chicago French Press.
“The best holiday shopping deal? Supporting the small businesses and entrepreneurs you want to see succeed,” she said in the video. “This Black Friday, I’m supporting Black-owned businesses on Amazon like Chicago French Press, a coffee company that’s Black-owned and female-founded.”
Founder Kris Christian was inspired to start Chicago French Press by her desire to find bold and flavorful coffee. She discovered that if she blended her coffee with dried fruits, chocolate, and nuts, she could fall in love with her morning cup without all the cream and added sweeteners.
“Their roasts are super creative and fun with blends like Snickerdoodle, chocolate blueberry, and maple pecan,” The Bring It On star said. “If you need any extra motivation to get out of bed and get to the coffee maker, Chicago French Press is delivering.”
Plus, Union loves the brand for more than just its delicious blends. “I love that not only are their unique, fair-trade and non-GMO coffees delicious, they donate 5% of their proceeds to non-profit organizations that need support,” she wrote in the post caption.

Many of the flavors are already low in stock so run, don’t walk, to grab the final bags of original blend, vanilla bean blossom, and winter wonderland. And if you’re too late to the party, Target has some of Union’s favorite flavors in stock too, including coconut creme, peach nectar, and black luxe.
“I’m kinda obsessed with it,” she said in the live video. “It is so awesome to use in the tub, the shower, and it leaves your skin so silky smooth.”
If you’re looking for more Union-approved picks to support small businesses this holiday season, the actress told us that she loves a good soak in the tub with her favorite bath salts.
“I love using the bath salts from LIVE BY BEING for a good relaxing soak,” she previously told Prevention. “They have several different scents and they all give you that spa feeling from the comfort of your own home. Plus, I love that I am supporting a small Black and woman-owned business that I can easily order from Amazon.”
