Co-Ground is Melbourne's new pop-up charity cafe
Fighting poverty one cup of Five Senses coffee at a time.
Get caffeinated for a cause at Collingwood's latest coffee spot. From February 4, Pace of Collingwood's display suite on the corner of Wellington and Langridge Streets will play host to a pop-up cafe, as part of a partnership with homegrown charity Co-Ground. Together, they'll be fighting to bring positive change to the developing world, one steaming hot cup of coffee at a time.
Located out the back of the nine-storey apartment block, the pop-up will feature coffee by the crew from Five Senses, from a serious coffee machine donated by La Marzocco, and will be open Wednesday through to Sunday from 7am to 3pm. The space will be provided by Pace Development Group free of charge, allowing Co-Ground to max out on profits. That money will, in turn, be used to fund the charity's latest project, a school in Vanuatu, alongside additional education and livelihood projects in the Philippines and further Asia-Pacific region.
"We are absolutely thrilled to be working with Co-Ground," said a spokesperson from Pace. "Not only because they make spectacular coffee – although that's obviously a bonus – but also because of the important work they do with communities to improve education in developing nations."
