When a young coffee enthusiast approached us to design a Coffee shop concept around mindfulness, they knew exactly what they are looking for: A meditative space that encourages the presence of mind, provokes thoughtful interactions, and provides a comfortable oasis for solo visitors and groups alike. The space was conceived to become a backdrop for memories, a quiet- yet powerful- presence that invites you to pause and ponder.

Best Berkeley Cafe CA / California focused on Mental Health

Mind Coffee is a specialty coffee shop dedicated to spreading mental health awareness and creating a more comprehensive narrative for mental health.

We are all about giving back to the community. We want to be a resource for the community and host events that help us grow in some way.

Rewriting The Mental Health Narrative / Community

Everyone knows that if we go on daily walks, do strength training at the gym, or eat health, we can improve our physical health, but when it comes to mental health, we typically skip all that and go straight to the extremities and outcomes of what happens when we don’t take care of our mental health.

If you type ‘physical health’ into google, all the top results are talking about exercise, being active and healthy, or different components (including nutrition, strength, flexibility, aerobic conditioning, balance, weight, and sleep). However, if you type ‘mental heath’ into google, it goes straight to finding a therapist, taking a mental health test to find out if you have depression or are bipolar, the personality disorders, PTSD and articles on red flags for shootings.

Home for One Coffee at a time

Our goal to serve high-quality, great tasting drinks that inspire. We want to be a safe, positive environment that stimulates our mind and provides exercises/tools to grow mentally strong. Over time, we hope to change the narrative around mental health so that, like with physical health, chapter 1 starts with exercises and healthy habits instead of jumping straight to the severe illnesses.

Questions and Answers

What was the brief?

We were given creative freedom to design the concept behind the Mind Coffee brand and their New Coffee shop in Berkeley. So we designed it the way our minds feel on the inside!

How is the project unique?

The custom-designed fabric ceiling consisted of 600’+ of tracks and fabric. 
It was built by the design team and new coffee shop owners after many trial and errors.
