Germantown is a neighborhood of creators. Long have the residents of this historic neighborhood been creating and making things that are worthy of attention. With so many local artists, makers, musicians, etc. living here, we as a neighborhood need to embrace this creativity and give it a place to be created and witnessed. As residents of the neighborhood and makers of coffee we also feel that our neighbors deserve better than gas station coffee. In response to these needs we've conjured up the idea of the Germantown Espresso Bar and Creative Space.
The espresso bar will be a fully operational cafe, brewing up delicious coffees both from here in Philadelphia as well as from around the country and even the world. We want to bring consistently quality coffee to an area that has long gone under caffeinated. We want to take Germantown from being a neighborhood with out a coffee shop to the neighborhood with the best coffee shop. In addition to that we want to give our neighbors a place to meet, work, and socialize. That's where to creative space comes in. in conjunction the espresso bar, we will also have space for people to create, places to display artwork, and an area to host live music events. The hope is that with more space to gather, create, and live in Germantown we can begin to create a more cohesive neighborhood of artists and makers. We would also hope that we can help to bring our part of the Germantown Ave. corridor back to life and get it back to the bustling business corridor it once was.
With these ideas in mind we intend to move forward and hopefully, with your help, we can continue to make Germantown a better place to live and help get the resident artists and creators the recognition and resources that they need.
