West Seattle weekend scene: C & P Coffee party pours a cup of gratitude

Pete and Cameron Moores, proprietors of C & P Coffee Company (5612 California SW; WSB sponsor), presided over a party Sunday – to say “thank you.”

Signs like that one in the shop invited customers to celebrate the coffee house’s future, secured back in March when the couple bought it from their longtime landlords, who had put it on the market in January, promoted as a “terrific development opportunity.” Crowdfunding and more ensued, culminating in the $1,265,000 purchase. Sunday’s celebration included cake, the Marination food truck, and even a poem:

That was a collaboration between poets who have participated in PoetryBridge readings, among the many regular events at C & P (you can see their calendar here). We stopped by late in the party, so we asked Cameron if we’d missed any big announcements; no, she said, it was just all about the gratitude

    It was a terrific party.  This was a win-win-win outcome. The property owners got their money, Cam and Pete keep their shop, and the community keeps a unique and favorite gathering place.I see Dawnelle (Taco Queen of the Emerald City) from Marination photobombing…

    Cameron and Pete deserve it all.  They are incredibly warm and caring people who run a stellar business in West Seattle.   Thanks to them for all they provide for us!

    My favorite java stop in all the world! Our community and its love of C&P came together to make this happen. Cam and Pete and all the great baristas ( George, Gillian, Katie, Sarah, Emily ) make this a very special place. It’s like Cheers, everbody know your name. So Cheers! to C&P! -Tami, Ornulf and Senja ( your biggest furry fan).
