One of Old Brooklyn’s only cafes will close its doors this month, following several years of business. The shop, known for its many plants, flavorful drinks and used book sales, originally opened in March of 2018.
Coffee Coffee Coffee owner Trey Kirchoff announced the news in a CCC social media post, stating that the closure arrives after stresses related to the pandemic.
“In the early days of the pandemic my second son was born and enduring the pressures of both business ownership and parenthood has been a lot. I am tired. The business plan did not include a pandemic protocol but I’m scrappy and creative and proud of how CCC adapted. As challenging as it has been to carry this burden through these strange times the hardest part so far is simply letting go. I loved being here. The vision was massive. People were really feeling it. This coffee shop was my dream, and we all kind of dreamed it into existence together.
“Final thought: If you value independent, local, family-owned businesses then get out there and support them! Otherwise, they will vanish and you will be left with fast casual corporate coffee and the flavorless drinks, food and spaces they provide.”
