'Over Coffee' plans to open offline hangouts to create a physical manifestation of online activity and community building

Over Coffee, a new social network built around connecting people over coffee and conversation, has gone live and plans to open bricks-and-mortar coffeehouses in the future to give a physical presence to its online activity. The online community is already attracting a diverse range of coffee lovers from all over the world. Its founder, Jessica Jaffe, said:

So many relationships, adventures, and experiences are founded or nurtured over coffee. There are so many wonderfully small, yet profound moments that take place over a warm Cup of Joe. I want to remind people of this and bring people together, online and also in person.

Coffeehouse-Themed Online Community Plans To Open Offline Chain

In addition to profile pages, walls and photo albums, Over Coffee offers people the chance to write their own personal stories about coffee and life, which can become featured in the “Coffee Stories” section. There are also editorial pieces on different coffees, their backgrounds, and how to make them at home. An interactive map of the world lets people add their favorite coffee shop and there is a shop where users can buy coffee beans, coffee makers, mugs and other coffee-related gifts. Over Coffee plans to continue its expansion and open a coffee chain in order to bring people’s activity and stories on the social network to life, so there will be both an online and offline place for its users to connect over coffee.
