Global Goods and Coffee Shop, which opened in Olde Town Arvada in the spring of 2013, has all the trappings of a coffeehouse -- but with a different goal. Global Goods is run by an international nonprofit, Global Refuge, that provides immediate aid where it's needed around the world. The coffee shop is a way to educate the public and also raise funds for the cause: Goods made by refugee artisans are sold in the shop. But whether you come to aid the cause or just get a cup of coffee, you can make yourself at home. The enterprise occupies a historic bungalow that was the home of the first mayor of Arvada, and most recently the PeaceJam office; there’s a spacious patio and porch, a comfortable front room, an upstairs area with desks, and a conference room that can be reserved.
