As one of the winners of Shift Capital’s Kensington Avenue Storefront Challenge, Càphê Roasters embarked on the goal of revitalizing the neighborhood of Kensington through coffee. Founded in 2018 by Raymond John, non-profit CEO of 12+, and Thu Pham, a Vietnamese American raised in Philadelphia, Càphê Roasters is the first and only Vietnamese specialty coffee roastery in Philadelphia, operating in the Kensington neighborhood. We offer coffee primarily sourced from Vietnam as well as other Southeast and East Asian regions, specially roasted to deliver the best drinking experience. Càphê’s mission is to bring communities together as inspired by the common Vietnamese expression “đi uống cà phê” translating to “let’s get coffee,” which in Vietnamese culture signifies community engagement.
