Last spring, students in an advanced political seminar created Mo’Coffee, a student coffee cooperative that would be student-run as well as student-owned. The decision to create a student run and owned co-op came after learning that there were no student-owned or cooperatively-owned enterprises within the Mount Holyoke community. The decision to make said enterprise a coffee business came out of a need for more coffee suppliers with convenient locations for students as well as a desire for later hours. A petition on Change.org, started by Azulina Green ’17 in October, states that “Mo’Coffee is inspired by the rich history of worker-owned and democratically operated businesses throughout the Pioneer Valley,” a system that the Mo’Coffee co-op would follow by having the coffee supply enterprise worker and student-owned.
