Street Bean

A Coffee Shop with a Purpose

Street Bean coffee, located on 3rd Ave in Seattle, Wash., has a greater purpose than cafinating its daily customers. Street Bean is partnered with New Horizons and works to train and mentor street teens in their business to help get them off the streets. Soon, they will be expanding to a bigger roasting facility to sale wholesale beans and create more positions for these teens.

Not only does the business proving good coffee, perfect espresso shots, and frothy milk, but they are serving a greater purpose and making a difference in young, underprivaledged teens lives.
