coffee that tastes good. coffee that does good.
In 2009, Street Bean was borne out of a need to provide supportive employment training for the young people of Seattle.
Over 1,500 young people (ages 12-26) in King County spend each night without stable housing. Most have been disconnected from opportunities to succeed due to a myriad of reasons outside their control.
Young people need more than just a job to move beyond street life; they need the opportunity to form a new identity and the chance to discover who they are and can become.
As a 501(c)(3), Street Bean Coffee Roaster’s mission is to provide an opportunity for street-involved young people to discover and employ their gifts by serving coffee in our community. Our hope is that this experience will serve as a catalyst to move onto successful future employment.
