THE MEETING PLACE CAFE
"Our heart is to serve quality coffee in an environment that builds community."
We use the 'Velluto' blend beans by Elixir. Smooth, rich and medium to full bodied, the Velluto Blend is a soothing coffee with a sweet, creamy, nutty flavour combination. Elixir is a local roaster from Stafford, Brisbane. They have been a great support and give us their coffee as a donation!
The Meeting Place Cafe is a not-for-profit coffee shop that focuses on creating a safe place for Brisbane's youth to hang out. We want this café to be a place to connect Youth With a Mission to the local community through our coffee.
MEET THE TEAM
Our vision statement is to build community and extend hope to all who come to the café. The heart and vision is to use the café as a place to create an atmosphere of warmth, hospitality and the presence of the love of God that encounters people to transform their hearts towards Him. While we are a not-for-profit café, and all of our staff are volunteers, we aim to be excellent in business and excellent in ministry.
We aim to train and equip those who come serve with us as competent baristas, who encompass the heart to see the kingdom of God established in their sphere of influence, learning to contextualize evangelism for a café culture within a market place context. We do this through 3 avenues: by having full time YWAM volunteers (committed to work in the café ministry for at least a year), with full time interns (participating in the 18 month café internship that runs alongside the Basic Leadership School), and through students attending the Music Art and Dance DTS (which has a coffee track in which students learn how to make Australian style coffee 2 afternoons a week, and participate in the café service and hospitality during their weekly work duties).
As a not-for-profit café, our menu is based on a gold coin donation!
We serve everything from flat whites and cappuccinos to teas and thickshakes!
