Project Description

Our mission at Melanin Cafe is to serve our customers high quality coffee and educate them on black history and culture. The coffee industry is a billion dollar industry that is loved by many, but not many black faces are seen running this industry. We want to mix our love for coffee with the history and culture of our people. Education about black people, history, and culture in schools have been limited to a few people, a couple of events, and a small number of accomplishments.  The problem with this is that there are so many black people that have accomplished and done so much for this country, but we don't know much about them. We may get about 3 pages in a history book and a black history month that is limited to  a handful of people, so why not serve one of the most loved beverages and a little education on the side. Each drink is crafted with a story and each food item is filled with love and culture. If we can inform and educate people then we can open eyes and open minds to change the world. We can inspire and encourage people to be and do all that they can do. We want to change the world one cup at a time, one conversation at a time.

Our team is family operated with a husband and wife duo and a sister. Catrice is the brain of the business and barista, Jakyra is the strong support, and Crystal is our baker, together we are a powerhouse that looks forward to educating the people and giving back to the community. We are seeking funding to help start up the coffee shop. The funds will go towards leasing a building, equipment purchases, inventory, and working capital. 

We would like to thank each and every person that has given to our campaign. Your generous gifts will make our dreams come true and our mission to help this country reverse the stereotypes and stigma of black people . We are forever grateful and we couldn't have done this without you wonderful gifts.

Thank you!
