Operation Bean!

Café X: By Any Beans Necessary is a worker-owned cooperative coffee shop created to support disenfranchised communities through social, cultural, and economic engagement. Our vision inspires connected communities, generational wealth-building and embraces full ownership of the time, talents and abilities of our membership and community stakeholders.

This is our second funding push. This time we are asking our beloved community to support us in securing operating and capital funds to move into our new location! We are transitioning into the College Area Business District to add some flavor and good vibes to the surrounding community. There we will host events, meetings, workshops, community conversations, open mics, and more - in addition to selling delicious coffee and tea. We are co-located with a yoga studio, hair salon, and event space. We are looking forward to hosting you.
Your contribution will help us pay our worker-owners a livable wage, purchase furniture, and buy materials for our students to become trained baristas and entrepreneurs. We move into our building Oct. 8 with the grand opening to be announced in the weeks to come.

Contributions at the $25 level and above makes us feel extremely special. In turn, you will receive a welcome packet inviting you to join our amazing stakeholder advisory team - we call them the Xperts.

You will receive:

A Café X t-shirt
Invitations to private community stakeholder meetings
Free drink/food and event offers in the via e-mail

We appreciate all the love and support given thus far and are excited for the next chapter in our journey!
