making progress at home.stead

Thanks to the help of 20 strong and enthusiastic friends, the home.stead cafe space got cleared out and a dumpster of debris taken away in June.

The team is now actively working with our electrician and plumber to build out the space and some beautiful, old terrazzo flooring is being uncovered!

indiegogoWe made it past the $20,000 mark! Thank you so much for your help; we are blown away by the generosity of those who have contributed. We hope to reach $60,000 total in the next few weeks, please help to spread the word!

home.stead partners with counter culture coffee

counter_cultureWe are thrilled to announce that home.stead has officially chosen Counter Culture Coffee as our roaster. We’ll be serving their excellent coffees when we open later this fall. Counter Culture is renowned for sustainable coffee of the highest quality. Since their founding in 1995, Counter Culture Coffee has represented a different way of bringing coffee to market: sourcing incredible handmade coffees directly from farmers and cooperatives, and roasting to bring out their unique flavors. They’ll be providing us training and support at their facility in Somerville.
