Fall has brought the fruits of some creative collaborations seeded earlier in the season. It’s always so inspiring to see what can be created when a group of individuals, with a variety of artistic talents, join forces. We had the honor of collaborating on a  bodaciously-styled photoshoot, which was recently featured on Wedding Day Magazine’s blog! Thanks so much to all the wonderful folks who teamed up to turn a passing idea into something really beautiful.

One last big thing–for some time now, we’ve been actively on the hunt for a home for a year-round brick and mortar operation. We are happy to announce  we have found a great fit and future home inside the State Street Marketplace!

We are very much looking forward to brewing coffee alongside our friends Waxwing Vintage, Wren the Butcher, Monkeyfist brewing, Crafted TC, Zaitun Cafe, and Franny’s F QueWith this new development, we have decided to wind down the truck for the 2017 season, (aside from the monthly brunch pop-ups) so we can hit the ground running with everything it takes to get our shop licensed equipped/stocked/ready to roll with a rad little set up.

 

 

Up North Pride Week 2017

Planetary Coffee is all about inclusivity. We consider ourselves allies for all those who identify as queer, bi, trans, gay, lesbian, or otherwise marginalized  by color, gender or sexuality. This Sunday, June 25th, we will be marching in UpNorth Pride’s  4th annual Up North Pride Rally and Visibility March, and Emily and her dance troupe are honored to have the opportunity to perform a piece of choreography to a very powerful song by a visionary artist named Tunde Olanarian.

We just want to make it known that we consider ourselves dedicated to creating more inclusion in our community, and that all are welcome at our establishment. There are a ton of incredible events happening around Traverse City leading up to the the visibility march, and many different ways to get involved and show your pride. Hope to see you all on Sunday!!!
