The CoRo Coffee Room features the coffees roasted by 4 of the 20+ unique brands of coffee that call CoRo home. Each brand maintains a regular roast schedule in our adjacent shared space coffee roastery. We rotate the coffee offerings throughout the year, and offer daily coffee flights for the curious palate.
We are Slojoy. We roast our coffee just a few miles from where we brew it. We handwrite notes on every cup. We like single origins. We serve out of a sweet walk-up window. And we are as serious about spreading joy as we are about making good coffee.
Zolo Coffee Roasters
With the simple yet elusive goal of creating the very best cup of coffee, Zolo Coffee got our first gig at the Danville Farmers’ Market. Now, nearly 3 years after our first market, we are doing several different markets and antique fairs a month, have commercial accounts and have worked many weddings, parties, conventions and other events thrown in between.
Alchemy Collective is a worker-owned cafe and roaster selling small batch, lovingly roasted coffees. We are a majority POC owned and democratically managed business. Our cafe is on Alcatraz and Ellis in Berkeley's Lorin district.
Ultimately our goal is to be an art delivery service that also happens to give you some the world's most amazing coffee with each delightful piece of art. We call it the “Holistic Coffee Experience”.
Collaboration is beautiful. Community brings people together and we learn more from each other than we ever could alone. With that spirit in mind, we want to highlight some of the great people who make this collaborative space more enjoyable.
THE MIDWIFE AND THE BAKER
We could say a lot of things about how the MIDWIFE + the BAKER came to be but the short of it is that we are husband and wife, we happen to have two of the oldest professions, and we are psyched to be able to work with our hands everyday and stay connected to the simple and essential things in life - Mac as baker and Jaime as midwife.
June Taylor Jams
We work directly with small family farms, seeking out heirloom and forgotten fruits, hoping to revive the tastes of our collective pasts. These fruits, once commonly grown and available, are now rare and almost extinct. Supporting the farmers who grow them helps to ensure that these varieties of fruit will not be lost
Tcho chocolate makes everything better. Making better chocolate is simple. Source ethically. Treat growers fairly. Preserve the land. Doing it the TCHO way results in a better tasting chocolate you can believe in.
Jered’s Pottery is Jered Nelson and his talented crew of artists and craftspeople. Jered has hand-thrown over 100,000 vessels in his 27-year career as a potter. Beautiful design, Jered believes, inevitably comes from fine craftsmanship. Jered’s fascination with how people interact with ordinary objects—a lip to a cup, a hand on a bowl—inspires the subtle details in his work.
