Local Spotlight: The Well Coffee Shop
The Well Coffee Shop
This week we are putting the spotlight on an amazing local nonprofit in Nashville. The Well coffee shop located in Green Hills is not typically what you might think of when the word nonprofit comes to mind. When you first walk into The Well it appears to be a hip and relaxing place to enjoy a great cup of coffee and friends. It doesn’t take long though to look past the surface and realize that not only are you getting one of the best cups of coffee in town, but you are also now a part of helping an amazing cause against fighting poverty and bringing clean water to those in need!
It All Started With a Dream
The Well coffee shop was started by a group of friends filled with the love of the Lord whose eyes were opened to the needs of those around the globe as well as right here in Nashville.
“We (The Well coffee shop) exist to support God’s mission of giving a life of freedom and hope to oppressed, underprivileged, and impoverished children, women, and men. This missional effort is focused locally and globally through the giving of financial assistance, food, clothing, and other essentials of life. We do this by selling coffee and coffee products and then taking the profit from those sales and giving it away to those in need.”
Coffee for a Cause
Thousands of people across the globe die daily due to a lack of clean water. A clean water system, or well, is a key solution to saving so many lives. The cost of building these wells ranges from $1,000 to $12,000 per well. To help reach their goals The Well coffee shop has partnered up with The Living Water Project and Blood Water Mission who both have extensive knowledge about building clean water systems.
You can purchase any of the coffee brews found in the Nashville store, online. Not a fan of coffee? No problem, The Well also sells handmade items online and in store! Products such as handbags, clutches, and scarfs are brought in from places all around the world including Honduras, Haiti, Uganda, and Ethiopia. Many of the items even come with the name and picture of the person who handmade it for you! Your in store and online purchases help to provide sustainable income to those in need.
