In Europe, the original coffeehouses were created to serve people coffee and provide a place for them to enjoy their drinks. As the coffeehouse [2] evolved, it became an open center for thinkers and researchers across many disciplines to share their discoveries with one another. Public Coffee [3] is specifically designed to generate this same type of collaboration and community engagement. Public Coffee will be a mobile nonprofit coffee shop that visits neighborhoods across Denver, Colorado. Equipped with a participatory coffee bar and modular tables [4], the structure of Public Coffee is designed to facilitate collaborative and discursive involvement. By providing a space for interdisciplinary dialogue, Public Coffee aims to inspire a culture of tolerance and innovation wherever it goes, starting conversation and engaging locals.
