• CUP - Coffee Uniting People - Creating Inclusive Opportunities

Our Mission

CUP hires people with and without disabilities to work together in an inclusive workplace. CUP at Embarc Collective opened in March 2023, and our South Tampa location will open Summer 2023.  CUP, a 501(c)3 nonprofit, is about inclusion, acceptance and opportunity for people of all abilities.

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.
