Who is Orange Door Coffee?
Coffee: It is a lot more than just a drink. Coffee is a catalyst for community, creativity, love, dreams and so much more.
We are a coffee shop who is seeking to do coffee differently. We are not going to be your run of the mill coffee joint where you pop in, grab your burnt coffee, fill it a quarter way with milk and then jet off to where ever you are headed.
We want you to ENJOY your coffee!! We want you to enjoy the atmosphere and stick around for a while. Orange Door is going to provide high quality coffee and espresso and at the same time provide an environment where you can study, read, write, or have that meeting with the friend that you have been longing to catch up with.
Coffee needs a face lift. We have become too accustomed to drinking bad coffee. We sit in crowded spaces because that is all that is available to us. Orange Door is changing that. We want our coffee shop to be a place where you feel the freedom to dream. We will have a creative common space where artists and writers alike will come side by side to create. We will have a space for students to study. Kids; they too will have a little place to call their own.
For us to do this, we need help. Thats where you come in!! Together, we can accomplish big things...and then begin to change the culture of coffee. Start up costs are the only thing holding us back right now, but through this campaign we are seeking to begin raising those costs. And for all we know, we might accomplish all of our goals and raise the full amount needed to get Orange Door open!!
Breakdown of Goals
As we are beginning this process of raising funds to open, we know that we have to take steps. it would be awesome to see $50,000 come in over the next 60 days, but as money comes in, things can be accomplished.
Our first goal is $5,000. This is a great start towards getting Orange Door on the path of opening an amazing coffee shop. Any place we get will always need they typical paperwork and due process: an inspection, bank paperwork and more. $5,000 gets us started and gives us a place to begin.
Our next goal is $7,500. Reaching this goal will give us a little bit more capital to work with as we will begin leasing and working towards renovations of the property to make it perfect.
Beyond renovations: $12,500. We will be able to complete all renovations and have the place prepared to move into. $12,500 is a magic number for us when it comes to being able to get the doors ready to open.
Lets think essentials: $25,000. With 25k, we will be able to begin putting in the essentials and outfitting the place. We will be able to begin buying the equipment and turning the shop into a coffee shop!!
Ultimate completion: $50,000. With the full $50,000 we will be able to outfit our shop into a premier coffee shop equipped to provide an amazing cup of coffee and the atmosphere that it deserves.
Check out our PERKS to the right to see how you can donate and receive some cool things in return. You could choose an awesome t-shirt, a pound of roasted coffee...or if you are super ambitious, you could even get free coffee for a month or a YEAR!! These are all in place to help us reach our goals, so please look to donate and pick a perk.
We have chose to do flexible funding which means that if we do not meet our goal, we still will be able to get the money that is raised. With that said, the money that we do collect will go towards the opening of a coffee shop, not matter how long it may take. Baby steps, hopefully though money will continue to come in and this coffee shop project will take off!!
Coffee needs a revolution. Over the past decades, people have had their eyes opened to the atrocities that happen over seas on coffee plantations with regards to the working conditions and the pay that farmers receive. Fair Trade and Direct Trade organizations have done an amazing job of bringing this info to our attention and helping us as consumers find ways for us to consume coffee "fairly." But now it is time to change how it is consumed on our end. Orange Door will join the many coffee shops who currently seek to not only purchase and serve Direct Trade coffee, but to also do it in a way that is enjoyable and delicious!! We encourage you to find a coffee shop in your area that serves great coffee with a great atmosphere and begin to frequent their shop. Gainesville Georgia currently lacks this kind of coffee shop, but Orange Door desires fill that void.
