German, from Kaffee coffee + Klatsch gossip, Kaffeeklatsch is to be a tiny, mobile espresso bar within CommunityWise Resource Centre (223 12 Ave SW.) Funding for this project will go towards the cost of building the customized coffee cart and the licensing necessary to operate. The space is currently a 5x5 storage unit that will be retrofitted to serve specialty coffee.
Inspired by the café life so prevalent in Europe, Kaffeeklatsch's planned coffee program is simple, but precise. All drinks are made fresh to order with well crafted coffee.
CommunityWise Resource Centre is the oldest, purpose-built, social service facility in the city of Calgary. Dedicated to brewing unmatched quality coffee, Kaffeeklatsch is a social venture that will provide the caffeine necessary for its 60 + tenants to carry out their essential community services - alongside coffee affectionados - with 1% of its gross earnings going back to CommunityWise.
Prior to starting this venture, I was privileged to have worked a contract position for the Calgary Society of Independent Filmmakers within CommunityWıse. Realizing that the only community element missing from CommunıtyWise was the smell of coffee, and the social element this drink provides, I decided to embark on this exciting project.
