Brooklyn College Coffee Collective wants to do its part in terms of building and strengthening the diverse student/ faculty community here on campus. Our Collective ideals were not chosen arbitrarily in an attempt to be different from other businesses on campus nor are we trying to start a fad. We believe that by doing away with hierarchies puts everyone on common ground and allows us to better access each others experiences and knowledge to address issues that affect us all here on campus…with that said we need your help building a list of Safe Space ideals that will help us all communicate honestly and openly, without fear of judgement. If you have anything you would like to add to the list Email Us at Brooklyncollegecoffee@gmail.com
Support Collectives…Not Corporations!
As the raindrops drum against my windowpane
They syncopated to the rhythm of my ever beating heart
And usually that would be enough…
…but I need more
As the sun graces the unlimited sky
She brings with her the warm glow that only intensifies my own
And usually that’d be…enough
Today I need more…
Brooklyn College Coffee is a student-run, collectively managed business, the first of its kind at the City University of New York!
This project was initiated in the Spring of 2009 and is intended be a trendsetter in our community by serving high quality, direct trade and organic coffee and tea beverages at a low cost and by modeling environmentally sustainable practices and a cooperative business structure. With oversight from the Student Center Director, the collective is staffed and managed by Brooklyn College Students!
We are looking for students who:
- Are interested in learning about high quality, ethically-sourced coffee
- Are devoted to the Brooklyn College community
- Are willing to invest their time and energy in a dynamic student-led project
Collective members will be expected to commit at least 20 hours per week during the academic year, including both staffing the café and fulfilling managerial responsibilities.
NOTE: Brooklyn College Coffee can be found on the first floor of the Student Center!
We deliver anywhere on campus!
Contact us @ 718.951.5000 ext. 18110, or email us @ firstname.lastname@example.org.
We cater too!
Thats right! Coffee, tea, and delicious homemade treats from BC Coffee could be at your next gathering! For more information on pricing and placing a catering order, email email@example.com.
Friends of BC Coffee–
You’ve seen us at the Student Center, maybe you’ve ordered coffee or delicious pastries from us. After some time of trailblazing foundational work to get our coffee collective running, CUNY’s first ever student run business is having its GRAND OPENING this Thursday, October 7th, 2010 on the 1st floor of the Student Center. Stop by during common hours, from 12:15pm-2pm We would like to invite you to join us in celebrating the official opening of BC Coffee. We like to think this is a triumph not of just the collective members, but also for those that supported us and for the larger Brooklyn College Community.
We’re looking forward to seeing you at our semester kick-off event! Enjoy some direct-trade coffee for only $0.99, all day! And pair it with a tasty cookie!
