Seattle: Black Coffee now open on Capitol Hill

Black Coffee. Oct 8:

First Week of Black Coffee

We’re open for coffee, and we’ve still got lots of work to do..

The space is still under construction – we’ve still got a whole laundry list of work to do. Nonetheless, we wanted to start preparing the public for how delicious our coffee is, so we’ve set up a temporary coffee bar to start serving coffee and espresso!

The coffee bar is operating inconsistent hours at the moment, as we transition out of our other jobs, but expect to find us from 6am-6pm on weekdays, 8am-6pm on weekends. We’d love to make you a coffee (and not JUST black coffee), wether you dig a strong and complex espresso, or a sweet and warming mocha, let us be your coffee shop! You’ll find us at 501 E. Pine St., the corner of E Pine & Summit. You can pull up right outside our door by bus lines 10, 49, and the 43 & 8 run just around the corner.

We’ve also launched a whole new set of perks for our IndieGoGo fundraiser! Get a professional massage, free coffee for a year, personal barista training, and many more wonderful gift packages. Support Black Coffee through mutual aid!

Check out the New Perks!

We’re looking to have the coffee bar open consistently through the month of October while we complete the buildout of our space. In order to make this happen, we’re putting a call out for baristas!

Are you a trained barista?

We’re looking for baristas that want to join us in working volunteer shifts at the coffee barWe need folks who are trained and excited to represent the co-op. Just to clarify, we are ALL working volunteers right now, worker-owners included. We’re at full capacity in terms of full worker-owners now, but after a month or two of business we will know wether we can start growing our team. Here are the details for volunteering:

  • You can pick your own shifts (preferably 4 or more hours). Any weekday from 6am-6pm, and any weekend from 8am-6pm.
  • You’ll get to earn tips
  • You’ll be helping out the co-op! Thank you!


  • Specialty Coffee Trained
  • Current Food Handler Permit
  • Understanding of the Black Coffee Co-op’s mission or interest in learning more.

If you’re interested in a volunteer barista position, email, or contact us here.
