• CUP - Coffee Uniting People - Creating Inclusive Opportunities

Our Mission

CUP hires people with and without disabilities to work together in an inclusive workplace. CUP, a 501(c)3 nonprofit coffeehouse, is about inclusion, acceptance and opportunity for people of all abilities.

CUP now has two locations open in Tampa: CUP at Embarc Collective, 802 E Whiting Street downtown; and CUP South Tampa, 3408 S Dale Mabry Hwy.

Our coffee is bold. So is our mission.

Our Story

Our involvement with Challenger Baseball (baseball that includes children with disabilities) opened our eyes to the significant need for inclusion at all ages and into adulthood.  Eighty percent of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities are unemployed.  We are determined to change this…one CUP at a time.
