Melannie Winter

Core Coffee Manager

My name is Melannie, the new manager of the cafe. I have been in and out of the coffee business for the last 10 years. I really enjoy creativity and latte art is just one of the many things I enjoy to make. I am an animal lover! And if I have a brief moment I would love to show you adorable photos of them if you’ll let me! On my days off I love being creative with photography, jewelry making, cooking or working in my garden. Lots of exciting new stuff we’re rolling out in the next few weeks, so make sure to drop by and say hi!

Supporting Local Charities

We exist because of our community’s support. We feel it essential to give back, so with the help of our customers, we choose one or more charities per month, ask them how they need help, and give to their cause. Examples include various drives, fundraisers, and the use of our space for events. Some examples of our charities include:

Supporting Local Artists And Creative Individuals

We love the creativity that exists within our community and want to enjoy it every day. Using our professional gallery system, we invite local artists to showcase and sell their work on our café’s walls. Moreover, in exchange for making our shop more beautiful, we pass 100% of the profits to the artists when their work sells.

For individuals and groups, we regularly provide our café as a platform for many events and seminars.
