Today in caffeine: Intrepid Coffee to open in new space; Blue Coffee makes Kickstarter goal

Posted by on Fri, Dec 5, 2014 at 10:41 AM

It appears Durhamites love coffee so much that they're willing to donate big bucks to keep their favorite spots open.

Intrepid Coffee & Spirits,
which closed its downtown spot on Parrish Street for financial reasons, is reopening at 904 Broad St.

Owner Matt Victoriano, an Iraq War veteran, Iaunched a successful Indiegogo campaign—he raised more than $28,000—to start fresh in a new location.

Intrepid is a nonprofit cooperative workspace; membership and access to the coffee shop requires a $6 monthly fee (or $72 annually). Get the lowdown on Intrepid's membership page.

Intrepid not only serves coffee, baked goods and beer and wine to the public, but it has an overarching mission to serve veterans, especially as they transition to civilian life.

And most recently, Blue Coffee raised more than $36,000 in its Kickstarter campaign to fund its move from Corcoran and Parrish streets to 107 N. Church St., near Main.

Gwen Mathews has owned the long-time coffee shop, located on the street level of the old Jack Tar motel (aka the Oprah Building) for nine years. Blue Coffee is moving because Austin Lawrence Partners East is renovating the Jack Tar into a boutique hotel, which is expected to take at least a year. In addition, Mathews and ALP East disagreed on a vision for that space when it's finished.
