"Hasta Muerte" coffee, an employee-owned co-op refuses to serve police officers in uniform.

In fact, a police sergeant was turned away from the shop a few weeks ago.

He says he was surprised but walked away without incident and without any coffee.

According to a social media post, the shop states that they "have a policy of asking the police to leave for the physical and emotional safety of our customers and ourselves."

The Oakland police officer's association has sent a letter to the coffee shop asking to open a dialogue about their policy.

Officers say they want to build a better relationship with the coffee shop and the rest of the community.
