When we conceived the idea of owning our own coffee cart, it was purposed to build relationships – to connect with people in our community. What better way to develop deep community, than over a great coffee (or chai, hot chocolate or tea!). Solid Grounds Coffee will be available at selected community events, but more importantly it will be grounded at CCC as a service to the wider community. Our plan is to soon have a safe and secure undercover space for folks with young families to enjoy a great coffee (or beverage). Solid Grounds Coffee beans are ethically sourced internationally and is roasted and supplied by KAI Coffee based on the Sunshine coast – a great alignment of values and mission!
