About

Learn about the beginnings of Southeastern Roastery from this Newsy.com interview.


Southeastern Roastery is raising $300,000 to open at 4701 Queensbury Road, Riverdale MD. Our needs to occupy this space are long overdue. We need an in area one-stop locale to efficiently fulfill our mission (to bring you finely crafted specialty (SCA) coffee in a space that honors and recognizes women's and underrepresented people's contribution to all aspects of the coffee value chain, from farm to table) and to scale production for continued growth. We'll use these funds to install our plumbing and HVAC, upgrade our electricity, install fire rated dry-wall, our roasters, light fixtures, seating, etc. Inside this family-friendly safe-space cafe, we will open for coffee cuppings, work-space, local author sessions and books, outdoor meet-ups, community based foods and goods, community driven demos and talks.

Risks and challenges

One of the largest risks we face is not completing construction before our move-in date of January 1, 2020. We run this risk if we cannot raise the funds in a timely manner (like this month!). To avoid this risk, we are exploring all avenues of fundraising (loans, grants, etc.) and Kickstarter is just one of them. Ask about hosting an event or how else you can help raining money!
