Named after a city in Ethiopia, Axum Coffee is a new cafe that opened recently in downtown Winter Garden, FL. Focused on Coffeelanthropy, Axum Coffee does something a little different than your typical coffee shop. They give away 100% of their profits to people in need.
Over the last couple weeks I’ve been using Axum as a place to sip coffee and handle some of my social media work. As a mom and pop shop fan, finding a place that is locally owned in Central Florida is always a pleasure. There’s a great feeling of knowing you’re supporting someone that lives near you and that you get to actually meet the people who dreamed up the company.
I can’t speak anything on their menu since I’ve only had their coffee, but I can say the coffee is very good.
I will speak on their character, which so far what I’ve seen, is very driven to knowing the people that walk through the door.
With a small area for kids to watch tv and play with toys to couches, chairs and tables for people like me to engage and surf (wifi) I’ve really come to like visiting Axum.
The only unfortunate negative to Axum coffee is the bathroom. In order to get to the bathroom you have to exit the back door, go the elevator and take it up to level 2. Axum is located in a new building in downtown Winter Garden and shares the bathroom with the neighboring theater.
