We wanted to take just a minute and tell you about some major changes happening at Silo Coffee + Goods.
First, as of July 1, we will be closing our cafe at 4818 Washington Blvd. Our events, wholesale, and online sales will still continue, and more great things are in the works, so don’t fret!
This has certainly been a bittersweet decision for us. We’ve loved all the great people we’ve gotten to know in the Central West End, and it was a lot of fun getting to share our story with people face-to-face on a daily basis. However, we’ve decided to close for a couple of reasons.
The biggest reason is simply that our events and wholesale have been very successful, making the cafe the weak link in the chain. We love doing events - getting out, meeting great people, and introducing good coffee to new places. We love having wholesale partners, getting to connect with them regularly, and putting the mission of Silo Coffee + Goods before organizations of people. These arms of our company are working to fulfill our mission of sourcing coffee from coffee farming communities and giving back to provide clean water to those same places. We felt that if we really wanted to honor our mission and seek to succeed in it, continuing to spend a great amount of time and resources to our cafe would be irresponsible.
So instead, we’re going to shift our priorities to pursue events and wholesale with even more care and quality. Keep your eyes out for more on this, we have great big plans to make events awesome. Silo + events = big and awesome, just you wait and see, you can’t argue with math.
So, what does this mean for you?
