Local 123 is an independently owned and operated company committed to delicious coffee and sustainability.
Local 123 received their Green Business Certification from Alameda County. It is a long process that involves completing a lengthy checklist with requirements on reducing waste, conserving energy and water, preventing pollution, minimizing toxins and purchasing environmentally responsible products.
Local 123 serves award-winning, sustainably farmed coffees roasted by Healdsburg’s Flying Goat Coffee. They are passionate about great coffee, made to order, and they hope that every cup is an experience.
The coffee is accompanied by a simple, locally sourced café menu including pastries, homemade herbed butter, locally made jams, artisan salami, and salads composed of fresh locally farmed produce. All the dairy and produce are organic.
The award-winning roaster, Flying Goat Coffee, is dedicated to sustainability and coffee excellence. They value their direct relationship with individual growers and family farms long steeped in the tradition of biodynamic farming.
They are located at 2049 San Pablo Avenue in Berkeley, California. The name reflects the building’s history as the Painters’ Local union hall from 1943-1971 but also speaks to our commitment to sourcing goods locally, supporting green businesses in the area, and fostering a greater sense of awareness and appreciation for specialty coffee and foods on West Berkeley’s State Highway 123.
