Cubs outfielder Ian Happ is using his love of coffee to help raise money for COVID-19 relief charities.

The 25-year-old Happ is partnering with Connect Roasters for Quarantine Coffee. It costs $15 per bag, and $3 from every sale goes to virus-related causes.

Happ calls himself a “coffee connoisseur.”

Happ is keeping busy while he waits for word on the major league season, which has been delayed by the pandemic. He has been living with three other players from the Cubs organization in a house in Arizona. The group has been posting videos of its daily activities and doing a podcast.
