NEW OPENINGS AND RETURNS
Black Coffee Northwest
This new black-owned café and nonprofit “founded on excellence” will be ceremoniously opened tomorrow October 17th. The admirably community-focused venue will highlight social justice with a barista training program, weekly youth program, and extracurricular study hours, zoom “coffee chat” talks on key topics, a coat ride and voter registration rides (and even a bogus version for kids to teach them about community engagement). The shop serves Ethiopian, Burundian, and Kenyan roasts from Black-owned Renton Boona Boona, donuts from Zuri’s Donutz from Lynnwood, salmonberry pastries and sweet potato tart from DarNesha Weary’s mother. Eater Seattle reports that the store has received racist threats and that the store’s opening has been delayed due to attacks by an arsonist who threw Molotov cocktails into the store on September 30th. Fortunately, however, the damage was minimal and the deal was enthusiastically received by the company’s community during its drive-thru service preview last weekend.
