Something's Brewing in Southeast...

X marks the spot. Fall 2018.

X marks the spot. Fall 2018.

We're excited to announce that we've been a public fundraising campaign!

With your help, we will become a permanent venue for coffee, community-based events and local educational support for community members. Café X is a worker-owned coffee shop and co-op that will enrich our member-owners, pass on communal wealth and knowledge, and provide welcoming space to organize and learn from one another. 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.

Visit our GoFundMe page and make a donation!

After a cost analysis, we have determined that it would take over $26,000 to get up and running for the first three months. This would cover our daily operating costs, equipment, supplies, and labor. Through our earlier efforts, we were able to secure funding to cover some of our start-up expenses. With more support from backers like you, we will be able to open up our doors to the community this fall.

We've created multiple incentive packages for our generous donors:


High Five!
