Enjoying coffee while helping the community in Orlando, FL

By February 16, 2016 Travel Stories 5 Comments

For a European coffee drinker (or should I just say someone who likes a good and strong coffee), finding good coffee in the US is rare (I like Starbucks but still…).

I like to make coffee at home but sometimes I prefer to enjoy a coffee made at a good espresso machine and of course, with decent coffee beans. And by that I don’t mean a machine where you push a button and your latte is ready. What I mean is a real espresso machine followed by a handcrafted pouring technique, all handled by a talented barista.

Downtown Credo – the story behind

A relative who is also a very good friend of ours, who is living in Orlando, took us to this really nice place that makes excellent coffee aaaand… paying for it is based on donations. All they do is suggest a price range and you decide how much you want to pay.

The staff is very nice and helpful, willing to suggest types of coffee if you’re not sure what you’ll like and helps out when pay time comes.

Besides good quality coffee, they also offer tea and baked desserts.

Downtown Credo is a non-profit coffee shop, they buy the beans directly from the coffee growers and its income goes to a number of non-profit organizations. The place is very nicely decorated, it makes you feel welcome and cozy and the coffee is hand-crafted.

Every time we visit Orlando we come to this place.It is actually a “can’t wait to go to Credo” thing and the good news is they’ve just opened a new shop. Yey!

Everything there is to know about this place can be found on the official site, here.
