Semilla Cafe + Studio

A neighborhood living room that features local arts and culture through coffee 

Inclusive . Fresh . Diverse

The City of Hartford is experiencing an economic renaissance. Semilla Cafe + Studio exists to ensure that Black and Latinx communities who remain in this City have room to be a part of this growth. Semilla works with emerging artisans and social entrepreneurs to share resources and space -- operating as a hybrid cafe, pop-up event space, and arts retail facility.

We're working to open our doors in Summer 2019. We need your help!

Retail Space

Supporting the growth of local Black and Latinx Hartford-based business owners and entrepreneurs.  Operating as an indoor market where emerging and independent artists and designers can showcase their wares, this space is designed to support those who do not have a brick and mortar home for their business.
