Pound Coffee will be Khalil's first venture. The store will be selling two daily Counter Culture drip coffees for service and selling a half dozen roasted coffee blends to purchase. Pound Coffee is designed to be both warm and contemporary.

 

Khalil fell in love Counter Culture's coffee sold at a store in Georgetown. He later contacted the company and really liked their the idea of producing a "Sustainable" coffee grown on farms with high biological diversity and low chemical inputs. It conserves resources, protects the environment, produces efficiently, competes commercially and enhances the quality of life for farmers and society as a whole."

Mission Statement

While being a fun and lively coffee bar, Pound also has these core values:

 

Respect the products we sell

Respect the customers we serve

Respect the community we are in

What does that mean, exactly?

Respect for the products we sell.

 

Here is some more information that I found on their web site.

We are not just slinging coffee and pastries. Our business is specialty coffee and fresh baked-goods, and it is our goal to ensure we are serving the highest quality product.

 

All of our coffee, supplied by a local roaster, will be sold with clearly labeled roast dates. Our baked-goods will be baked fresh daily.

 

We will not compromise on quality.

 

For example, if a barista pulls a shot of espresso for a latté that does not meet our idea of a good shot, he or she will throw it away rather than try overcompensating with extra milk.

We will stay committed to making perfect drinks. The same commitment will be given to our baked-goods.

 

Respect for the customer we serve.

 

Customer service embodies many things. Foremost is efficient, honest, and friendly service. By listening and communicating, we believe we can create a partnership with our customer.

 

Customer service also means that the customer can expect clean and comfortable surroundings. Cleanliness is paramount. Clean freaks welcome here.

 

Respect for the community we live in.

 

Our aim is always to be aware of our community and to be exemplary citizens in that community. To that end, we will endeavor to foster relationships with local neighborhood advisory committees and business groups.
