Black Coffee is a worker’s cooperative, café, community space & infoshop in Seattle. Black Coffee serves specialty coffee & tea, vegan food & pastries, and delicious beer. In addition, the Black Coffee Co-op hosts all sort of community events, maintains a small public library, and has a selection of independently produced literature.
The collective began to form near the beginning of 2012, and began renovation on its space in October 2012.
We are currently closed for relocation.
We are open weekdays from 7am-1am, weekends from 8am-1am. We accept event and meeting reservations.
Black Coffee Coop is committed to a non-hierarchical structure of work & a not-for-profit model of commerce. In creating the Black Coffee Cooperative, the individuals that currently comprise it hope to create a number of beneficial tools, for example:
> Physical space for culture and community, from fundraisers to film screenings, book fairs to belly dancing, skill-shares to silk-screening. Black Coffee will be a hub for events, meetings, or just drinking a brew with comrades.
> A non-hierarchical workplace, where we learn to truly work together, and share the fruits of our work equally.
> A “Safer-space,”This means we actively attempt to keep the space free of oppression & intimidation (look over our Safer Spaces Agreement). This also means we are always open to learning how to become more safe and welcoming.
> A new info-shop and mini-library.
> Delicious vegetarian & vegan grub + coffee & tea + beer.
