Friends of Downtown coffee maven raise funds after motorcycle crash


Coffee John, owner of the Coffee Gallery in the Open Book literary center, 1011 Washington Ave. S., is known for his generosity and outgoing nature.

Now he's depending on the generosity and kindness of others to raise money for his medical bills. A car hit Coffee John April 1 after he left his North Minneapolis home on his motorcycle, leaving him with a serious brain injury.

He has medical insurance, but the medical bills are still piling up, friends said.
