Like any great coffee shop, Esteamed Coffee offers hot and cold drinks and delicious muffins, brownies, cookies and pastries. But there is so much more. Visit the shop and you will see artwork created by artists with differing abilities. And they employ a dozen people with differing abilities. A non-profit, Esteamed Coffee is supported by more than 30 volunteers. 

Co-founder Angie Hudson told Cary Magazine, how they put their employees with differing abilities front and center. “They’re not sweeping a floor in a back room. They’re not in a warehouse doing a job that nobody ever sees,” Hudson said. “The coffee shop creates that opportunity for being seen and celebrated.”
