Profit-Sharing Cafes

In many so-called hip urban centers, coffee shops pop up like nobody’s business, so much so that it’s often hard to keep track. While any alternative to Starbuck’s is typically welcome, Melbourne-based Kinfolk goes a step further than, say, merely serving fair trade or organic shade-grown coffee. All around, Kinfolk is a social business.

Kinfolk, which is run by volunteer staff, redistributes profits to four key development projects. What’s more, customers who frequent the cafe have a voice when it comes to cause. “Customers may choose to support the likes of a multifarious capacity-building initiative in Rwanda; an anti-child slavery set-up in Ghana; an education-focused project for young Indigenous Australians or a café that pioneers relationship-building and radical inclusion for Melbourne’s homeless, marginalized and disenchanted,” write Kinfolk on their website.
