Cafe Con Leche is an award-winning creative lifestyle brand based in Pittsburgh, PA. We produce pop-up events and digital media that celebrate Latin art + food + culture. Founded in January 2014 out of a desire to bring more visibility to the Pittsburgh Latino community, Café Con Leche is the expert on the Latino community in Southwestern Pennsylvania and beyond. Since our founding, Café Con Leche has hosted over 25 Latin-themed, neighborhood based pop-up events around Pittsburgh with over 2,000 attendees.
Achievements in 2016
Café Con Leche partnered with Most Wanted Fine Art gallery to host the first ever Latino Artist in residency program in Pittsburgh. This residency won the 2016 Creators of the Year award from the Pittsburgh Technology Council. In conjunction with the residency, Café Con Leche was happy to launch a new event series called Sobremesa, a Puerto Rican supper club, which gave attendees an exclusive opportunity to meet the resident artist while listening to live Latin music and enjoying delicious food. As we grow as a company, we keep our core values centered in all things we do. Our belief in the power of Latino leadership led us to co-organize the first Latino Day at City Council in response to the racist attacks against Las Palmas in Brookline. We have provided administrative support Latinas Connect, a grassroots, women-led initiative which is creating a space in Pittsburgh for Latinas to grow personally and professionally. Lastly, our commitment to the LGBTQIA+ Latino community continues to strengthen. This year for ORGULLO (Pride) we partnered with Reel Q Pittsburgh to co-host a showing of the LGBTQIA+ movie made in Latin America, Undertow (Contracorriente). With the tragic events in Orlando, Café Con Leche organized the Queer Puerto Rican community to host a traditional Puerto Rican wake called a Baquiné. In celebration of the growth of the Pittsburgh Latino community and all the amazing things happening in the region.
