Espresso 77 says that the funds raised will pay for renovation of the exterior of the new storefront.  The old medical office was a bit of an eyesore, so I think they have made a great choice by reinvest the community's donations back into neighborhood improvements.   

Everyone has a right to heckle, but Espresso 77 is one of the most community-minded businesses we have here in Jackson Heights, and enjoys tremendous good will from the neighborhood.  Over 150 people saw fit to donate in response to their request. 

I can't wait for the new expanded shop!

Thank you to everyone from Jackson Heights Life who has supported us - with Indiegogo contributions, with patronage of our shop, and with kind encouraging words.  We appreciate you!

If you wish to contribute to our neighborhood in another way, please consider checking out another fundraising campaign - from the folks at Queens World Film Festival.  They are raising funds to support the cultural enrichment programs they provide for PS69, one of our local elementary schools, as well as the film screenings they provide for local neighborhood groups and senior centers.  Their fundraising website is here:

All the best!
