About Us


OUR MISSION…

…is to bring economic relief to coffee growers in Honduras.

One village, one family at a time, we are changing lives with coffee.

[H]elping people, planting churches and providing great coffee is what we are about. There are many ways to help people. We determined the best way for us to help is by providing work that single moms and their children, or fathers, mothers and their children can do together to earn income. There is a time and place for giving assistance to those in need and we do so at the appropriate times. However, the old adage still holds true today-Give a man a fish and he’ll eat for a day, teach a man to fish and he’ll eat for life.

We are also motivated to help by our belief in the Bible and the example set for us by Jesus, the Apostles, and many others throughout the Old and New Testaments. Consider this text from James; “If a brother or sister is without clothing

and in need of daily food,and one of you says to them, ‘Go in peace, be warmed and be filled,’ and yet you do not give them what is necessary for their body, what use is that?” We have been ministering to the Lenca Indians for the last three years by taking week-long trips into their communities and doing construction projects, medical clinics, pastor/teacher/leadership training, children and women’s ministries. As important as these activities are, their physical needs became obvious to us. It is no longer an option for us to focus only on the spiritual while neglecting the physical; we became convicted that we should help them with both.

In every community where we start a new coffee growing cooperative, it is our goal to plant a new church in that community. These communities either have no church at all, or no evangelical church. When we arrive in the communities they strongly suspect or know that we are missionaries so we are not doing anything in secret. Adherance to our Christian beliefs is not a requirement for participation in the cooperative. Membership in the new church is also not required. We do not run or manage the cooperative; a board is formed from within the group which handles all of the management and administrative tasks. What we require is that the members of the cooperative work hard and work together to help each other so that they all produce the best coffee possible. We suggest that they use some of their profits from the business to help their neighbors in need.
As for the coffee, it is great coffee. I can tell you that the coffee cupped out at 85.25, or that it has a chocolate fragrance with citrus notes, and that it is a full-bodied coffee with very little aftertaste. I can tell you that the coffee is all naturally grown (meaning no chemicals used) and shade grown at approximately 5,000’ altitude, and that it is handpicked three times during the harvest. I can tell you that our beneficio uses state of the art equipment to process our coffee for export. However, the way the coffee tastes in your cup is what ultimately determines the greatness of the coffee.
