Go For It C & P Coffee!

Hello friends, family and neighbors. A few weeks ago, our beloved and historic coffee house property that we have leased for 15 years was suddenly put on the open market—for $1.2 million! This place has become an center for our community and we are determined to save it. Which means putting in a bid to buy, and the asking price is beyond our means.

We’ve started this fund with two goals in mind: First, to help collect enough for a down payment. Second, there are a lot of accompanying expenses—lawyers fees and other costs. We need help with those too.

Given more lead time, we might have been able to figure this out on our own. But we’ve been told that our landlord is looking at offers in three weeks.

Pete and I are forever changed by this moment.  We have been overwhelmed with offers of love and support from a community that recognizes how very important it is to provide a place for life to happen.  Our customers have become neighbors and friends, and they all feel this historic property belongs to them. It is place where couples have been married, children have had parties, memorial services have been held, art classes and book clubs form, local musicians gather to jam, community gardens are planted in the back yard and most importantly, people gather to talk to each other face to face!

In Seattle these days, this kind of place is disappearing.

If we are successful in our goal, Pete and I are dedicated and determined to giving back to this neighborhood that has so generously supported us. We are forever changed by your belief in us to be stewards of your second home. We want to continue doing what we do and share that journey with you.

Hi All,
I apologize about not being clear in our last update. Pete and I have the right of first refusal as part of our lease. That means that any offer the owner accepts, we have 15 days to respond with our own offer, which we intend to do. That is only possible with your generous support and the commitment of many of our neighbors to invest in this piece of history. We will be posting more information as we approach the deadline approaches. With deepest gratitude and love, Cam and Pete

Real Update
Hi dear friends and neighbors. Thursday afternoon, the seller of our lovely home for the last 15 years accepted an offer from Blueprint Capital for 1.285 million dollars. It seems surreal to have this moment in front of us but Peter and I are focusing all of emotions on the love, support and financial assistance you have offered us. We have many folks who are partnering with us on this investment and I would say we are almost there. We are having daily conversations with more folks who want to join us and I am confident we can do this by February 4th (the deadline for securing the funds).
Thank you again for your continued belief in our ability to steward this ship.
With so much gratitude
Cam and Pete
