Embracing third wave coffee culture, Fire by Forge fosters a "third space" where community thrives beyond home and work.

By creating an inviting atmosphere, we offer a neighborhood hub for socializing, working, and enjoying exceptional coffee experiences.

As a social enterprise of Forge City Works, we're fully integrated with FCW's culinary and customer service job training program. This means that when you dine with us or use our catering service, you're supporting transitional employment opportunities, internships, and apprenticeships for people over the age of 18 who have barriers to employment, such as poverty, incarceration, homelessness, addiction/recovery, or similar challenges.

At Fire by Forge, we believe in the power of food to improve lives, and we're proud to create opportunities for those who need them most. Thank you for joining us on this mission.
