We’re Ready for Our Forever Home

The first two years of the cooperative have been spent at 501 E. Pine in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle.  Over that time the co-op has GROWN, from infancy to toddler-hood.  We have made leaps and bounds, and now we are ready to grow some more!  We want to grow our capacity to strengthen our communities, & we need to move into a long-term home where we can build for years to come.

Black Coffee pushes forward a new way of thinking about work & the economy: worker cooperatives eliminate hierarchy and increase the level of personal fulfillment for all workers. This keeps the value of the business in line with the values of the workers, and by extension with the values of the local community as well.

This move will not only help create a cafe that the whole community will enjoy, it will empower fellow Seattlites to create fulfilling work for themselves and for future workers, &  will help inspire a new, grassroots economy that values people over profits.

 

Black Coffee Thank You
