FOLLOWUP: ‘Go For It, C & P Coffee’ crowdfunding campaign launched

(WSB file photo)

As reported here on Monday, the owner of the 5612 California SW site where C & P Coffee Company (WSB sponsor) has been in business for 15 years has put it up for sale. The listing touts the 7,500-square-foot site as a “terrific development opportunity.” After an outpouring of support and ideas, C & P proprietors Cameron and Pete Moores have made their decision on what to do – and as part of it, they’ve just launched a crowdfunding campaign via GoFundMe. In addition to pursuing some funding this way, they tell us, “We are getting closer to being able to make an offer, but are still actively looking for investors to join us with the purchase of the property.” And as they explain on the new GoFundMe page:

We’ve started this fund with two goals in mind: First, to help collect enough for a down payment. Second, there are a lot of accompanying expenses — lawyers’ fees and other costs. We need help with those too.

Given more lead time, we might have been able to figure this out on our own. But we’ve been told that our landlord is looking at offers in three weeks.

Pete and I are forever changed by this moment. We have been overwhelmed with offers of love and support from a community that recognizes how very important it is to provide a place for life to happen. Our customers have become neighbors and friends, and they all feel this historic property belongs to them. It is place where couples have been married, children have had parties, memorial services have been held, art classes and book clubs form, local musicians gather to jam, community gardens are planted in the back yard and most importantly, people gather to talk to each other face to face!

In Seattle these days, this kind of place is disappearing.

If we are successful in our goal, Pete and I are dedicated and determined to giving back to this neighborhood that has so generously supported us. We are forever changed by your belief in us to be stewards of your second home. We want to continue doing what we do and share that journey with you.

The site owner is asking $1,250,000. In addition to being the home of C & P Coffee since 2003, the Craftsman home on the site has some history too, as a WSB commenter pointed out following our Monday report.

    That would be a shame to get another ugly, cheaply-built, Chinese Real Estate Apartment Building, at $1500 for a studio, in place of a unique small business.

    Good luck in your property acquisition attempt. You may even have some attorneys who frequent your shop and would work Pro bono publico.

    You might also want to ask at the register or have pamphlets succinctly (and inoffensively) explaining the situation to solicit possible donations to save the business.

    • My two cents ... January 13, 2018 (4:19 pm)

      ” … Chinese Real Estate … ” ?!?!?  Really? Would it be better if it was Insert-Ethnic/Nationalist-Group?  

      Thanks for being … uhhh …. you can fill in the appropriate word.

      • WSB January 13, 2018 (5:59 pm)

        We look up the property and project ownership for most things we report on and so far, it’s mostly local, occasionally out of state, very rarely out of the country (the ex-Alki Tavern site is one example). Can’t speak for the rest of the city.

      • Jon January 14, 2018 (2:42 pm)

        Oh boy. Someone is easily offended. Say what you mean, next time instead of cowardly insinuating. Be bold!

        I didn’t say any of what you’re implying (I won’t bother waiting on an apology, either), nor have I looked at the permit for that particular site — just mentioning a trend in the city, re: heavy Chinese investment and the loss it neighborhood staples.

        I could also just post a photo of my family – which would be terribly embarrassing for you and hilarious for us – but, I prefer having some privacy.

        Here are some Trusted News Sources™ (none of those pesky ‘Conservative’ sites!) for anyone who doesn’t have a grasp on reality and who also didn’t study Sharecropping, Feudalism, Taxation, Investment Banking, or Supply and Demand in school:

        Chinese Real Estate Investment in the Puget Sound

        Chinese Real Estate Purchase Rates in the Puget Sound Area

        There’s a reason Vancouver, BC became unaffordable for most Canadians: rapid and artificially expensive land acquisitions (which is why Progressive Vancouver started taxing the wealthy Chinese Real Estate Investors who are buying up all of the available land; and why there’s talk of Seattle doing the same, soon). 

        Vancouver Housing Tax

        The risk is that – with a sudden influx of wealthy land buyers – all available real estate keeps going to the richest investors – most from the same area and with the same purpose – who are only concerned with their bottom line rather than preserving any of the established community or history of neighborhoods. Land ownership in a wealthy city is less of a financial risk than minimal interest with a bank. And that’s where most of the purchasing power comes from: fund managers.

        The Chinese economic engine is strong enough to crash entire markets (ask a farmer); and Real Estate is definitely an area of high interest in Port / Business cities.

        Also, have you ever noticed that many of the “micro-studios” popping up around the city are designed like Chinese factory dormitories? Hmm…🤔

        If a Seattle property owner is able to get Top Dollar for their plot of land – even if it meant selling it to someone (or a corporate entity) who plans to redevelop and never set foot into the city – why wouldn’t they take that offer? Even if it means the city loses some of its ‘soul’, so to speak.

        It has nothing to do with “race”. That’s on you. The fact is that Chinese Capitalism is extremely efficient, less regulated, more successful, and particularly ruthless; thus, there are more rich investors and landowners from that part of the world; ergo, we can assume, using reliable data, that the majority of land acquisitions in the PNW are made by Chinese buyers. It’s simply concerning, is all.

        But, yeah — that must be “racist”, right? 💅

    • Mr E January 14, 2018 (10:15 am)

      By all means, Jon, provide your fellow WSB readers with the data to support your statement about “Chinese real estate.” If such data does not exist, now is the perfect weekend to reflect on your bogeyman conspiracy theories and retract your willfully ignorant opinion.

      • Jon January 14, 2018 (3:26 pm)

        I did, up above. Also, Search Engines are a tool for your convenience. To be clear: my gripe was with the trend in the city / PNW in general, not this exact site (I haven’t read their listing / offers). For example, not every person feeding into the rental exploitation market in SLU / Belltown works at Amazon; but many do. And thus, it is worth talking about / pointing out when discussing issues which pertain to rent.

        I could’ve said “Great, another Starbucks will probably move in to further gentrify and sterilize Seattle,”  illustrating the same frustration, and I doubt you’d have batted an eye.

        Real Estate Investment is largely a Chinese game here, and in Vancouver / Toronto. It’s not so much a “Jingoistic Boogeyman”, so much as it is our reality. The intention was to express my disappointment with what will likely be more of the common bland, avant-garde, prison-cell housing commonly financed by Chinese investors (see: most similar sites in the U District / U Village areas), with maybe some more cold, national chains at ground-level for retail (most living in West Seattle seem to enjoy the fact that it still has a ‘small town’ vibe and make it a case to support small business).

        But if you want that as a “gotcha”, then — sure, bud.

        My conscience is clear, Authoritarian Thought Police Neighbor. But thanks for cowardly insinuating that I’m a racist because I said “Chinese” and for showing us all that you have no clue (or choose to bury your head in the sand) in regards to the realities of land acquisition investments in the area.

        Please, do stop by our Wrongthink Household for some Hainanese Chicken Rice, sometime! Who knows — maybe not every Internet Comment is as ill-intentioned as you seem to believe? Your neighbors could be more “diverse” than you think! Maybe they’re aren’t really “Nazis” at the gates? Perhaps not everything needs to become a Battle For Good Against Evil? Could brevity be a factor in a post? Maybe it’s okay to have different opinions, thoughts, or preferences? Just a thought. 🤔

  • contrarian January 13, 2018 (3:54 pm)

    Am I the only one reading this story that is at all concerned about the rights of the property owner?  I personally find the comment “ they all feel this historic property belongs to them” to be somewhat disturbing, as does a number of the  assertions in the previous article’s comments that this property should be somewhat designated as historical.  Do people care, or even realize, that the property is an investment of someone’s?  At what point does the rights of this coffee shop supersede the rights of the property owner?  Can everyone please understand that this property does not belong to them or C&P, it belongs to the owner and they have a right to a return on their investment.  Would anyone else be OK with someone telling them what they could do with what could be this property owner’s retirement fund?  If the community, or C&P, wants to buy this property then do it, but do it at fair market value.  If enough funds can’t be raised then I would challenge the community to support C&P at a new location and bring the same sense of community to that location as well.  At the end of the day, does an old house really define the bonds that have been made there?  Please try to remember that the owners of the property are humans too, and that I’m guessing most commenting here wouldn’t be to appreciative of someone trying to dictate to them what they do with their investments, let alone judge them for it.  Also, am I missing something, are we talking about a non-profit or for-profit business here?  Maybe in addition to the GoFundMe they should turn the business into a Cooperative, seems like that would only be fair if other people are being asked to contribute…

    • Brian Hughes January 13, 2018 (4:25 pm)

      A Go Fund Me campaign is a solution that reflects the interest of each side.  It’s pretty clear that it’s a choice to donate.  If you were asking for help paying medical expenses, you’re within your right to do so without becoming an indentured servant as part of the bargain.  Same thing here.  Donate or not, it’s your choice.
      That said, it’s worth it to us to have C&P and this terrific building stay a part of our neighborhood.  

    • My two cents ... January 13, 2018 (4:26 pm)

      I agree — situations, background, motivations, factors are discarded by the various commentators. While it is nice to think that altruism is a universal norm, the reality is that most people are trying to make a living. Real estate is speculative – there is a risk/reward. Is there anything in the market to minimize/reduce the risk? No … 

      • WSB January 13, 2018 (5:06 pm)

        I think some are misreading this. The business owners have decided to try to buy the property. They’re not asking for a discount price. They’re not asking their longtime landlord(s) to just hand it over. Community members wondered, when the news came out, how they could help. Some even suggested GoFundMe or Kickstarter, and so here it is. Crowdfunding is a fairly common thing to attempt these days, and it’s been attempted for far lesser things, and far greater sums. Before the online version of crowdfunding was created, people would put a jar on the counter, have bake sales, go door to door, whatever. This is just the 21st century version of that.

    • NSAlki January 13, 2018 (4:28 pm)

      Very well put. 

      This seems wrong to me. The owner has the right to sell the property. That is the law of the land. If they don’t want to move they can buy it from the owner at market rate. It is a for profit business, not some noble community center.

      • Claudia January 14, 2018 (8:30 am)

        I believe that is what they are trying to do. Buy it at market rate from the owner.

    • Jaime Volker January 13, 2018 (4:39 pm)

      How are the rights of the property owner actually being infringed here?  C&P isn’t asking for special treatment; they are going to put in a bid if they can raise the capital.  

      Aside from you taking comments section as prognostications, what’s the problem, exactly? 

    • I LOVE WS January 16, 2018 (11:30 pm)

      I think if you own something that is important in a community, as an owner you have some responsibility to consider how your removal of that something might affect the community. It sounds like the owners didn’t give the business very much notice before listing the property and had they had more notice, the business may have been able to purchase the property themselves without help or with investors but without such a scramble and need for community support. Had the owners just been a little more thoughtful there may have been much less stress/controversy/sadness/frustration/backlash from the community. Yes they are the owners and yes that means they have the power and right to sell it whenever and however they want, but with great power comes great responsibility. This is a loved establishment in this community and telling the long time renters they are going to sell it in a few weeks just seems thoughtless to the business and the community. Plus, the business owners are trying to buy it at fair market value and enlisting the community who love them for support – between the actions of the owners and the renters, I’ve got to side with the renters on this one! I hope C&P remains and I hope our community stands up to support them by doing what it seems the owners were not willing to do, give a little something (even if that was just time) because it’s right for the community not just because it’s right for their own bank balance. We need more owners, investors, small businesses and community members  in West Seattle who are willing to stand up against the white washing of our community. The charm and history here will be lost if everyone who owns a piece of it is willing to sell it to the highest bidder waiting to tear it down and build more micro-studios.

  • Brian Hughes January 13, 2018 (4:08 pm)

    We love this place.  It’s a crucial part of our neighborhood.  We are happy to help out as much as we can.  Right now, it seems like money is needed most.  So we’d like to take a page out of the KEXP, KUOW, KNKX playbook and offer to match donations up to a cumulative total of $1,000.  That means that if you have $10, we’ll match your $10.  If you have $100, we’ll match that too… up to $1,000.  I wish we could do more, but this way may get people to donate who otherwise would be on the fence. 

    Honor system please.  If this message causes you to donate, email me at: SIGN)

    If you were going to donate anyway, then you’re awesome and you should do it!

    • Brian Hughes January 14, 2018 (9:26 am)

      People are taking us up on this offer to match, which is fantastic!  As of this morning (1/14) at 9:00AM, the total raised is $23,000.  Almost 10% of what is ultimately needed, but there is still a long way to go.

      One thing to consider:  C&P is good for property values in our neighborhood.  It’s both a unique and historic structure, of which there are fewer and fewer.  And it provides a huge qualitative value as a place where people come together.  There will be other lots that come up along California that can be turned into new town homes and condos but let’s just keep this one as-is.

      • savoirfaire January 14, 2018 (10:34 am)

        Great point about property values. We were incredibly lucky to be able to buy a house in this neighborhood  (could never afford it now!), but the presence of C&P was a big factor in our wanting to buy where we did.

        I was going to donate anyway,  but thanks for your generous matching offer! If they were to seek a loan through a community-sourced capital campaign I would contribute to that too.

      • Andy January 14, 2018 (11:46 am)

    Thank you Brian, that is so generous and kind … we are overwhelmed with the love and support of our neighbors!

  • TJ January 13, 2018 (6:44 pm)

    Jon was being straightforward My two cents. If someine is sensitive they can find something offensive in just about anything. Chinese real estate investment is overblown here, but still a legitimate concern. Maybe you were kidding

    • West Seattle since 1979 January 13, 2018 (7:39 pm)

      Why not just say “foreign investors” then, instead of invoking a particular ethnicity or country?

      • S January 13, 2018 (8:11 pm)

        Are Chinese apartment buildings uglier and more cheaply built than average? Not sure what Jon’s point was. 

      • RC January 14, 2018 (12:14 am)

        Because there’s no point being politically correct about it when it IS Chinese real estate investors. Not Indian, not Norwegian, etc. 

        What’s so offensive about being straightforward?

  • Legacy January 13, 2018 (7:51 pm)

    Please do not comment unless you have been there and understand the context of this historic craftsman house with original tile fireplace and windows and a photo on the wall showing it with a horse and buggy out front. We have only one chance to save these gems that are part of the history of this town, as we all know they are disappearing right before our eyes. C&P is a truly special place — the people, the community and the building together are what make it worth preserving for the next generation. It would be amazing to see that happen in a way that benefits all.

    • NSAlki January 13, 2018 (10:33 pm)

      Legacy. Oh please.

      Where is the legacy of the Duwamish that this land was taken from? If you cared so much you would protect that. 

      There is nothing sacred here in my opinion. Just change, which is inevitable. If people want to fund efforts for the coffee shop to buy the property, good for you. People seem passionate enough to do so and that’s great. But spare me the lecture on history and legacy. 

      • savoirfaire January 15, 2018 (10:55 am)

        Just my two cents, but I think we can be aware of past injustice while also caring about things that currently exist and matter to us. For example, I pay “rent” to the Duwamish:

        And I also contributed to C & P’s GoFundMe. I don’t see those two concerns as being mutually exclusive.

  • sailorgrace76 January 13, 2018 (8:20 pm)

    Because there actually are  a high rate of foreign Chinese real estate investors.  It’s actually factual, and should not be taken offense to. The comment was just about keeping real estate owned by local people, regardless of their backgrounds.

  • AT January 13, 2018 (11:02 pm)

    Why is it priced so high, though?  Is it an extra-large lot?  Just the development potential?  It’s a cool old house, but this isn’t Beach Drive or even a corner lot … 

    Best of luck to C&P!

    • RayWest January 15, 2018 (6:14 am)

      It’s more valuable because it’s zoned for commercial development.

  • Kathy January 14, 2018 (11:56 am)

    I’m a dog owner/lover and just curious about the photos with a dog in the shop. Does C&P sell only beverages and not food? Because the coffee shops in my neighborhood don’t allow dogs inside other than service dogs. I would like to see some businesses in Alki that are friendly to well behaved dogs for wintertime when it is too cold to enjoy your coffee out on a patio/sidewalk cafe. I don’t like to leave my tiny dog tied up out in the cold for very long. 

    • Mary January 14, 2018 (2:22 pm)

      Per health code regulations no dogs in coffee shops. 

      • Robert Dlugosh January 15, 2018 (11:26 am)

        The chance of crowd funding working in this case is very small. Too much money needs to be raised. 

        • WSB January 15, 2018 (11:41 am)

          Crowdfunding is a tough hurdle for anyone/anything to clear BUT if you don’t try, the chance of success is 0%. See the end of this classic movie clip:

          Anyway, also note that they are looking for investors as well.

  • Gigi47 January 14, 2018 (2:48 pm)

    Is there a movement to declare the site as historic?  Who’s leading that effort?  The hunting lodge previously there has really been well preserved and maintained. It has real potential for historic qualification since West Seattle was the original settlement of Seattle!

  • Jim January 15, 2018 (8:18 am)

    This is still a $1M loan – that’s an almost $5k mortgage payment, probably $1k taxes, plus insurance, plus ongoing maintenance and repairs on an old building.

    Does this pencil out? Is there enough left for the owners to make a living?  

    • Getoffit January 15, 2018 (2:04 pm)

      @jim and other negative Nancy’s- why do you care? It’s none of your business! It sounds like making money is not the primary motivation, and many crowdfunding projects don’t pencil out- that’s why they crowdfund. I really don’t get the benefit of crapping on this. If you’re not interested in donating, why not just move along.. 

      If you’ve ever been there, you could not deny that Cameron and Pete are lovely people and have fostered this nice community groove thing there. So people- maybe just try not to crap on everyone’s deal, and we can all feel better about ourselves. 

      • RayWest January 15, 2018 (4:27 pm)

        Getoffit–Jim has brought up valid concerns. If people are being solicited to contribute to this crowd funding, then they have a right to know if this is a viable project and exactly how their donations are being used. Cameron and Pete need to be accountable for this. I’m sure they will be, but don’t crap on someone for asking legitimate questions.

        • Getoffit January 15, 2018 (5:41 pm)

          Raywest and Jim- you’re right, IF Jim is considering participating and looking for clarification, then very well. My reaction is for the disinterested peeps jumping in to simply poke holes.

          Unlike many crowdfund campaigns, C&P and co have many years of history to show where their heart is, and that’s worth A LOT. Their past actions of providing an awesome forum to foster community is testament to their motivations. 

          Sorry if I was snippy. 

          • alki_2008 January 15, 2018 (8:52 pm)

            I agree with Jim’s concerns. If I was to contribute for C&P owners to buy the property, then what are the odds that they’ll be able to make all the payments?  It would be very unfortunate if a bunch of people contributed money, Cam/Pete buy the property, but then they default on the loan in 6 months because the payments are too high, and then the property gets sold off.


            Bank lenders and tax collectors are not going to waive payments because the property is a ‘community treasure’ or whatnot.

  • Daisy January 15, 2018 (9:46 pm)

    Dear C&P/Cam/Pete:
    WSB above mentioned briefly above that you are also looking for investors.  Would you help us readers understand what you need/what you are looking for? Also, if the full amount of $240K isn’t raised in time for the landlord to review offers, do you plan on taking out a loan to supplement for the downpayment? How many more days do we have?  

  • Samuella Samaniego January 16, 2018 (12:11 pm)

    In response to the earlier comments……I feel like one of the problems with attaching descriptors like ugly and cheaply built to “Chinese Real Estate” is that the writer is diminishing his or her own opportunity to be treated fairly and heard throughly amongst readership. Later comments regarding choice of words, political correctness or sensitivity, I have to trust that some commenters have simply seen and heard enough in the past year that has caused people in general to revisit their personal tolerance when it comes to referring to others’ race and ethnicity.

    As a gay half Native, half Asian woman, I have had more than my share of name calling, threats and insults.  Looking at the past few decades plus, the past year has been more challenging than any other year for me in terms of threats and being treated as a suspicious person. If the person casting their foul mouth in my direction can lace their insults and intimidation tactics referencing my gender and/or race, they never seem to fail to complete their efforts with doing so. Friends, family and loved ones of color endure at least as much as I have in this arena. These incidents happen in both public and semi-public places. While I am somewhat reluctant to admit this, it hurts all the more when witnesses remain completely silent. The silence assures the incident becomes much more dynamic as the foul mouthed person believes he, or she, is just saying out loud what everyone else is thinking but are too afraid to say it. The foul mouthed person may even come to think that they are something like a ‘leader of the people’.

    “ and ugly Chinese Real Estate…” can cause more harm than one might initially think. When persons employ this nature of diction and their own self perception is that they are NOT racist, I believe they are still within their right to feel offended by the attribution of “racist”. If not being perceived by others as a racist has meaning to them, I can only ask them to also consider that they might not realize how deeply they are touching the hearts and minds of actual racists. Like anyone, racists prefer to not think they are alone in their poor appraisal of others who do not look like them. 

    I started writing this last nite on MLK. I wish I could have finished it earlier. I really hope, sincerely, enough commenters return and maybe consider these thoughts on the phrase “ and ugly Chinese Real Estate”.  I hope too that the building owner and the business owners efforts toward a successful transaction are not compromised by anyone’s less than productive mixed feelings about race relations.

    Ultimately, I think its the people (and their Fur Kids) that contribute and define the qualities of every neighborhood.

    peace, love everybody,


  • Marie January 16, 2018 (12:44 pm)

    Felt good to put my money where my mouth is this morning, contributing to Cam and Pete’s fund.  Hope all of us who have appreciated their hard work at creating this soul place for the West Seattle community go for it!

  • Eric January 16, 2018 (3:08 pm)

    Have the owners considered doing a real-estate investment fund instead?

    I would invest in being part owner as a new landlord.  This would get more people interested in helping out.  $40k is awesome for a community go Fund me.  REALLY awesome.  I bet you can raise enough to buy the property outright if you were willing to get investors.

    Good Luck!

  • Dyn99 January 16, 2018 (8:36 pm)

    There are a number of issues with this.  First, any proceeds the business receives for this purpose will be considered taxable income by the IRS.  Depending on how successful the business is, it’ll be taxed at the top tax bracket for the owners which is likely somewhere between 25 and 37 percent, subject to a potential 20% deduction courtesy of the new tax plan.  That means the $240k raised will incur a ~ $60k to $89k income tax bill to go along with it.

    Next, a 20% down payment likely won’t cut it for a conventional commercial property purchase loan.  It’ll need to be closer to 25% or $300k.  The business could get an owner-occupied SBA loan for 10% down if they had the financial strength to qualify but that would take months.

    Realistically, they need to raise $350k – $400k to make this happen.  GoFundMe is not the right mechanism for this sort of thing.  The owners should consult with their CPA and a qualified attorney before proceeding further.

    Finally and most importantly, there’s no way this will happen unless the business’s cash flow supports the loan payments.  I am not a banker but I’d suspect that the business would need to produce $200k or more in annual profits to qualify for a loan of this size.  If that’s the case, do you really want to subsidize this endeavor?

    The road to hell is paved with good intentions.  I’m sure the owners didn’t think about these issues carefully before proceeding with the GoFundMe page, but hopefully they’ll do their due diligence and re-evaluate their approach.  Some sort of crowdfunded REIT would be a much better choice as other posters have suggested.

    This is a good time to remind would-be business owners to carefully negotiate leases with landlords. To protect the business, there should always be a clause in the lease that deals with change of ownership of the property. While you cannot stop them from selling, you can get legal assurances with respect to both notice of intention to sell, as well as predetermined cash payouts to compensate the tenant for any landlord-initiated early lease termination. At the very least, enough notice and a cash payment for lease termination gives the business time and resources to find another site in the community for relocation.

    Sad.  It looks like it’s a done deal.  As well-stated above, I hope the owners had some protection clauses in their lease:

      That’s the same status to which the listing changed yesterday. “Pending” or “pending feasibility” does not necessarily mean it’s a “done deal” – strong likelihood, but deals do occasionally fall through. I have no knowledge of specifics on this pending deal, but that should be noted.

    An involved party should contact the City of Seattle Landmarks commission and start the process of having the building landmarked so a developer won’t be able to tear it down. It’s a beautiful example of Craftsman Bungalow architecture and perhaps it can be preserved:
