About Us

The Dream . 

Hi! I'm Jasmine, the founder and creator of Are & Be Coffee. I have a love for coffee and a passion for people! 
For as long as I can remember all I have wanted to do in life is find the best way love on hurting people, on the unseen. 
For most of my life I have felt like a wallflower not seen or heard, yet I have the biggest smile and the loudest laugh around, ha!
I wanted to find a way to help the unseen feel seen, provide a tangible space for folks to find peace in the midst of chaos, and to cultivate an environment where   community can come together, and boom . 
coffee shop . 
So much community is created over a cup of coffee, right? 
But coffee shops have this unfortunate reputation of being a little clicky, and judgmental . . . "you don't know what a Gibraltar is?" I can feel the judgement already. 
Are & Be will be a shop that welcomes and encourages people from all walks of life to
come as they are & simply be .
I want to invite you to come along this journey from concept to concrete with me! I am starting a shop from the ground up, shaped by and curated for our community.
I am so glad YOU are here.
