Green Bridge Coffee

$10,970 of $25,000 goal

Close your eyes and imagine the local cafe you frequent on Saturday morning.  You can almost taste the delicious cup of freshly roasted, hand crafted coffee, right? Now open your eyes, because it's only Tuesday and you're driving to work.

Not many drive-thru coffee stands offer high-quality, craft coffee. Even fewer give back to the communities they serve. GREEN BRIDGE COFFEE does both.


WHO WE ARE:
We spent our first date at a coffee shop working on a crossword puzzle. After our marriage in 2011, Joel began envisioning a coffee shop of his own. With a background in quick-service restaurants, he asked, "Why can't quality coffee come from a drive-thru coffee stand?" Green Bridge Coffee is our answer.


COFFEE WITH A CAUSE:
We serve more than just great coffee.  At Green Bridge, we're committed to supporting the community as well. To do this, we're giving back 10% of every purchase--not just profits--to local charitable partners.

Each quarter, we'll feature two local Community Blend Partners. Customers will get to choose which Partner their purchase will support. We’re a drive-thru coffee stand that’s doing coffee differently. All you need to do is pull up to take part.


OUR PLAN:
We have a great location (SW Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway & 45th St.), awesome coffee (Nossa Famila Roasters), and are giving back 10% of every single purchase to programs that serve the community.

Now we need YOU to help make it happen! Funds raised will help with the purchase of the coffee stand, equipment upgrades, and start-up costs.

THANK YOU!!!

We’re getting so close!

We wanted to send out an update on the progress of Green Bridge Coffee! We are so excited to get keys to the stand THIS FRIDAY! Our goal is to only shut down for about 10 days while we make repairs and renovations, and open by October 11 (Joel’s Birthday!). The past few weeks we’ve been keeping VERY busy with everything that goes into starting our own business…Below are a few highlights-

- To compliment Nossa Familia as our coffee supplier, we’ve chosen Smith Tea as our tea provider! We had a fantastic time tasting all sorts of tea and selected six that will be featured on our menu, along with Matcha lattes and Chai. YUM!
- Joel ordered all of our materials for our exterior renovation. We will begin demo and construction right away! We are planning on a new angled roof, new cedar and flat panel exterior siding, as well as updated trim and green paint!
- Our signage and marketing materials are beginning to arrive in the mail and it’s started to make everything feel that much more real. Georgia loves the logo, and keeps telling us that G is for Georgia and GREEN BRIDGE COFFEE!
- Most importantly, Joel has been meeting with local schools and non-profits to choose as our first Community Partners. Aside from serving craft coffee, we hope that what will make Green Bridge Coffee unique is our pledge to give back 10% of each sale (not just profits) to local causes. Further, customers will get to choose with cause they want to support with each purchase they make! Stay turned on our website for our first picks!

We have been so honored by the financial contributions we’ve receive from friends and family alike. It’s amazing to feel the love from people even across the country who are just excited to get on board with what’s ahead for us. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT! We are so grateful and can't wait for what's ahead!
