The Cooperative Commonwealth Coffee Project aims to build a solidarity economy in the coffee industry by opening the first worker cooperative cafe in New York City. We see ourselves as a link within a broader movement for workplace democracy and social justice. Our café meets consumers’ need for community, connection, and coffee and other beverages and snacks while creating good jobs in a democratic workplace. We seek to right historical inequities in the global economy by sourcing ethically from the numerous agricultural cooperatives in the Global South.
