About the Justice Café

Brewing coffee and ideas was a dream, it became a reality.

Born from the desire to provide a safe and participatory space to young changemakers, we opened the Justice Café on the 3rd July 2015 thanks to CFIDEV’s support.

The Justice Café is one of Destination Justice’s flagship projects as a part of its Justice Matters in Cambodia Program. Destination Justice is non-profit organisation registered as a local organisation in Cambodia since 2013 that works towards a more just world by creating sustainable change.

Since its creation, the Justice Café has grown into a home for changemakers with various resources available, from pacted bookshelves to a recording studio. Animated by the Justice Café vibrant team, the space is the host of various events, from Coffee Talk to the Changemakers Training Program, is publishing its own books and producing documentaries and educational video.

Being a social enterprise, the Justice Café puts pride in being a gay-friendly café, in buying its products from other social enterprises such as Tree Corner Coffee, and on promoting plastic free initiatives.
