An Award Winning Coffee Shop

To Our Community,
It is with a heavy heart that we announce the closure of our non-profit community coffee shop. We recognize this decision’s impact on our loyal customers, volunteers, and staff, and we want to express our deepest gratitude for your support throughout the years.
Our coffee shop was established to serve our mission and as a gathering place for our community, where people could come together, share stories, and enjoy a warm cup of coffee. We have been truly humbled by the outpouring of support we have received from all of you, and we are grateful for the memories we shared.
Unfortunately, despite our best efforts, we have been unable to sustain our operations over the past few months. Several compounded factors have taken a toll on our business, and we have been unable to recover from the financial setbacks we have faced. As a result, we have made the difficult decision to close our doors permanently.
We want to thank our staff and volunteers who have worked tirelessly to make our coffee shop a welcoming and inclusive space for everyone in our community. We also want to thank our customers for their support and for making our coffee shop a part of their daily routine.
This decision was not easy, but it is right for our organization. We will continue to support the volunteer fire service in other ways, and we hope that you will continue to join us in our efforts.
Thank you for your understanding and support. We will miss you
