WHO WE ARE
Coffee Crafters Academy was born in 2014 out of a need to better serve those that have a prior criminal history. We are a social enterprise that operates cafes inside of correctional facilities across the state of Ohio. We train facility residents to become baristas that create a variety of artisan, handcrafted coffee, smoothie, and tea drinks to sell to other residents, staff and visitors. Our resident employees develop marketable skills and a positive work history that will help them obtain employment once released.
Our mission is to aid in the reentry of justice involved via employment .
Our vision is a world with more inclusive, supportive and forgiving communities that believe in the power of second chances.
