Alchemy Collective Coffee Brews Worker Power
As small food businesses do their best to make it in the increasingly competitive and expensive Bay Area, a new generation is turning to cooperative models to support their workers. From veterans such as Cheese Board Collective, Arizmendi Bakery, and Mandela Grocery Cooperative to more recent openings like Hasta Muerte and Tamarack, the East Bay is fertile ground for worker-owned cooperatives that are pushing forward a more democratic way of doing business.
Among such businesses, Alchemy Collective Coffee, a majority QTPOC (queer, trans, and people of color) worker-owned café and roaster, fosters a dedication to shared decision-making and providing a safe space for their workers and community at their Berkeley café and Jack London Square Farmers Market stand, while brewing high-quality coffee one cup at a time.
