Zoe Coffee Co, which recently opened in historic downtown Cleveland offers a collection of rich brew blends from all over the world. Owner and Cleveland native, Taylor Summers says whether you prefer light or dark roasts, flavored or even decaf, customers will have plenty of options to choose from.
“Our coffee is roasted one week and sold the next,” said Summers. “We pride ourselves on having fresh great coffee. Zoe Coffee Co will also offer custom drinks such as lattes, cappuccinos, frappes, smoothies, and more at our brick and mortar location.”
And, what’s even better than a good cup of Joe from Zoe? Proceeds from the sale of coffee and all java-created beverages will go toward sustaining Zoe Ministries in Kenya.
Zoe Ministries is a 501(C)3 non-profit organization Summers started in 2017 with the mission of sharing life through Christ by rescuing orphaned children, and providing clean water and many other community enhancements in rural Kenya.
“The entire purpose of opening the coffee shop is to raise awareness about Zoe Ministries and to provide sustainability for the work being done in Kenya. With this as the heartbeat of our vision, one hundred percent of the profits from Zoe Coffee Co. will go straight to the mission field to drill water wells, build widow homes, and facilitate other community enhancement projects,” said Summers. “We cannot wait to see how God uses this coffee shop to change lives and ultimately spread the Gospel around the world.”
The concept of Zoe Coffee Co came to life in an effort to expand the vision of Zoe Ministries here in the U.S. “This coffee shop will be so much more than coffee,” he explains. “Not only will customers have the opportunity to purchase delicious coffee, treats, and merchandise, but they will also have the opportunity to make a life-changing impact on people across the globe.”
