A Place for Refuge

We dream of a more vibrant Clarkston, one where refugees have opportunities to thrive. Where they from survival in their first days here to building a life. Where people from greater Atlanta and beyond discover the multi-textured beauty of a global culture right here in our own backyard.
Refuge Coffee Co., a 501c3 non-profit business, exists to serve the global community in Clarkston through coffee-related job creation, job training, social networking, and commerce.

We believe in the resilience of our refugee neighbors. We see incredible strength in our barista/trainees. Our goal is to join in the task of empowering our refugee friends to use their many gifts to help us create refuge. One day soon, we hope to see Clarkston emerge as a destination, a richly-textured “village” where people who live in greater Atlanta and beyond come to experience a dining, entertainment, and shopping experience created by a robust collaboration between immigrant and American business owners.

The Time Is Now

Now, we can – and must – purchase our little corner of the world so we can continue to create a true place of refuge. We’d be honored for you to join us in the effort, just as you have from the beginning!


Big Plan #1 (COMPLETE!): We bought a truck and tricked it out to be the coolest Coffee Truck in town. Our immigrant trainees are serving amazing coffee and specialty drinks all over Atlanta, and we’re all telling the Refuge story. Invite us to your event by sending us an email here. If you want to find our Refuge Truck Stops (where we’ll be and when we’ll be there), follow us on FB, twitter, and IG @RefugeCoffeeCo !


Big Plan #2: We plan to build a Coffee Shop in the heart of Clarkston that reflects the true heart of our city, a veritable mash-up of Asian/African/Arabic/American cultures. We will not only train resettled refugees here; we’ll create a place for these unique cultures to tell their stories and share their lives. Want to see a shop happen in Clarkston soon? Donate now!


Big Plan #3: Refuge Roasters. We’ll make Refuge Coffee even better by roasting our own beans. We plan to create a state-of-the-art roasting operation in Clarkston that will provide even more jobs and job training to resettled refuges. Want to see this happen soon? Want to purchase our roasted coffee really soon? Donate now!
