It’s more than just coffee, it’s a movement to promote healing and communal wealth-building for communities of color inside a sacred space through activism and artivism, in a natural and respectful way, one cup at a time.


Vibrant communities, creating and coexisting within the world.


Café X is a worker-owned coffee shop and co-op based in Southeast San Diego that will enrich our member-owners, pass on communal wealth and knowledge, and provide welcoming space to organize and learn from one another. We will become a permanent venue for coffee, community-based events and local educational support for community members. We want to work with people who are willing and able to share expertise and increase equalization of knowledge in the community. The relationships between us are equitable and cooperative.

We live our values.

Authenticity Always

Quality through Care

Connected Community

Creative Collaboration

Integrity from the Root
