Updated to include new hours!
We’ve shared some photos of our new location in Dalhart. And, you may have seen the event announcement for our Grand Opening next week.
Several people have been asking us what our hours will be. And what we’ll actually do there. So, it’s probably time to answer some of those questions.
Here are the basics:
Serving as the Dalhart Headquarters for Purpose Coffee Co.
physical: 324 Rock Island Ave.
mailing: PO Box 315
Dalhart, TX 79022
Tues: 7:30-11:30 am
Wed: 7:30-11:30 am
Thurs: 7:30-11:30 am | 2:30-5:30 pm
Fri: 7:30-11:30 am
What we’ll do is actually a harder question than perhaps it should be. But, it’s a mix of a lot of different things and elements. And, on top of that, we are flexible to see what it could be and what it should be.
First and foremost – and legally and technically – it’s our roasting, manufacturing, and shipping center. The vast majority of our sales come online or through wholesale to churches or ministries. As such, that’s our primary purpose for this space.
We are so excited to have designated space for these functions, as well as the organization and tools to accomplish them faster and easier.
We will have bags of coffee for sale, as well as our mugs, tumblers, and t-shirts (and any other products we might add in the future!). We’ve also thought about bringing in other purpose-driven goods that are in line with our mission.
You can come in the store to shop and visit, or you can use code “PICKUP” when shopping online to save the shipping. We’ll have a drive-thru window, so you can get your order as easily as possible!
The Roasting Room and Store Front and their functions are pretty cut and dry. And then there’s this space: the Tasting Room. It’s not a coffee shop. It’s not a church space. It’s not a living room. It’s not an event center. It’s kinda a mix of all of those.
We’ll have coffee available for tastings, and we’re happy to make you a cup of coffee that you can either take with you or enjoy in our Tasting Room. We have several ways to make coffee, from a coffee pot to a french press to a Clever pour over – and we’d love to tell you all about the best ways to make a great cup of coffee. But, we’re not selling cups of coffee and you won’t find a pumpkin spice latte. We kindly ask that you leave a donation to our Child Wellness Fund to cover the cost of your coffee and contribute to our missions projects.
We hope that it’s a space where people want to hang out, meet with friends, or host a group. We will open the space for Bible studies, book clubs, and other group events. We are also happy to rent the space for special events like meetings, showers, dinners, or parties.
And, we will host some of our own special events that will be ticketed – like dinner parties, roasting and tasting events, live music night, and more! (Be sure to like Purpose Coffee Co. on Facebook for all the details!)
As we’ve talked with some of you and let people tour the building, we’ve heard lots of new ideas and suggestions. So, we’re open to letting this space evolve based on how the community needs to use it.
We want it to be a tool to minister to this community, while also reaching people across the world. Our tagline is “created for a purpose” – and I’ve always meant that about the coffee and the company – but it is also meant for you: the people drinking the coffee. My dream is that you can find your God-given purpose in this space – through fellowship, through study, through service, through worship, through friendship, all while sipping on some great coffee.
