I am a resident of a small city touching edges of Decatur and Stone Mountain, called Clarkston, GA. A unique place that feels a bit different than the bustling inner city of Atlanta. While I never planned to move here, it was not by chance that I landed my nest in this beautifully diverse place. My adventurous soul began exploring, and I stumbled across one of many jewels that this “small town…big heart” has to offer: Refuge Coffee Co.
A simple yet stylish, chill, chic, indoor/outdoor vibe with tasty, quality products.
Comfy couches, various seating areas for work or relaxation, free WiFi, games & toys to entertain the little ones, and beautiful people all around.
This spot is more than just any old coffee shop, though. It was created with love and refuge in mind, by Founder, Kitti Murray, who believes in a “vibrant, resettled community in Clarkston, Ga.” Refuge Coffee Co. creates a place of refuge by training, coaching, mentoring, and hiring refugees. In addition to this powerful vision, the truck is expanding to create more jobs for the residents of Clarkston, by opening a full shop and roasting hub. You can also stop in to donate your new/gently used clothes that local families get to choose from before they get taken to Goodwill. Refuge Coffee CO. is always bustling with events and volunteer opportunities, so if you are looking to get involved, pay them a visit! The staff is friendly, and Kitti, the Founder, is always gracious enough to share a quick chat in the midst of her busy schedule.
Address: 4170 E Ponce de Leon Ave NE, Clarkston, GA 30021
