Jimmy Butler knows a thing or two about business and he is using it to good effect in the Bubble by running his own coffee business.
A lot of professional athletes have side hobbies they pursue. Jimmy Butler, the Small Forward for Miami Heat has a passion for coffee. According to a recent Reddit post, the 30-year-old Basketball star owns a coffee business inside the NBA bubble.
Kurt Gies of the Los Angeles Clippers who handles the Social and Content for the team tweeted a snapshot of Jimmy Butler’s holding coffee cups. The cup has his initials ‘JB’ as a logo. It looks pretty cool and is apparently selling like hot cakes inside the Bubble.

Jimmy Butler’s NBA Bubble coffee business
The Miami Heat star has taken his passions to the NBA bubble. Butler revealed this passion and business of his in an interview with Rachel Nichols on ‘The Jump’.
During their conversation, Butler spoke about how he has been charging $20/cup and selling his coffee to any and every player that is interested.
He has brought a ‘French Press’ and other fancy equipment that aids in brewing the perfect cup of coffee. And so far it seems like the players love his stuff. While initially Jimmy had brought in the coffee equipment just for his own needs, soon he saw players wanting to drink his coffee, as there is no really good coffee shop in the Bubble.

Owing to the basic need of good coffee and the fact that he knows his customers have the money, JB is now going to hike up the price to $30/cup. So, not only is he blessed with good Basketball IQ, he has some serious business acumen there too.
Further, he also revealed on the show that he when he retires from the NBA, he would like to start a full fledged coffee business. What do you think he should name it? Java Bean ‘JB Coffee’?
