Meet the Direct Trade Coffee Farmers

Meet the Direct Trade Coffee Farmers

We’d like you to meet the Direct Trade Coffee Farmers behind HOPE Coffee.


HOPE Coffee exists to show the love of Jesus with people around the world.  This is evident in every part of what we do.  You already know how HOPE Coffee uses profits to fund service projects that meet physical needs for families like clean water and a safe place to live.  You know that these projects are lead by local Honduran and Mexican churches who want to serve their communities.  You also know that we love to serve our customers, and support them in not only great tasting coffee, but also in helping to teach their members, customers and families about what they can do to support missions in their daily lives.

But did you know that HOPE Coffee is serving people before the coffee bean is even ripe?  We purchase our coffee beans through a Direct Trade relationship with farmers in Honduras and Mexico, paying above the established Fair Trade rate.  We have strong, ongoing relationships that extend well beyond coffee.  Because of these relationships, we have opportunities to share the love of Jesus with their coffee pickers, as well!

With that in mind, we thought you might like to meet the farmers who grow your HOPE Coffee!

Pour Over Brewing Guide: The V60 Method

Pour Over Brewing Guide: The V60 Method

So you’re wondering how to make pour over coffee? Designed to extract maximum flavor, the pour over method has become increasingly popular. We paired a V60 coffee dripper with HOPE Coffee Mexican Light Roast and what followed was an incredibly smooth and bright cup of coffee.

What you’ll need:

-A V60 dripper (or your pour over dripper of choice)

-Filter compatible with your preferred dripper

Mexican Light Roast (Whole bean)

-Grinder

-Kettle

-Food scale

Your favorite HOPE Coffee mug!

Setting Up:

-Set V60 dripper over your mug.

-Place filter in V60 dripper.

-Pour hot water in the filter and allow it to drip through. (This will not only rinse your filter of any paper residue but also gets your dripper and mug warmed and ready to brew.)

Grind:

-Grind 20 grams (about 1 ½ Tablespoons) of our Mexican Light Roast beans on a medium setting. Coffee grounds should feel like coarse sand.

-Pour grounds into filter evenly and then create a small crater in the middle.

Pour:

-Tare scale and start timer.

-Pour 35g (⅛ cup) of 200 degree water (steaming but not yet boiling) over grounds to allow it to pre-infuse.

-After 30 seconds, pour water until scale reaches 100g (½ cup) in a circular motion.

-At 1 minute, slowly pour water until scale reaches 200g (an additional ½ cup). 

-At 2 minutes, pour water until scale reaches 300g (an additional ½ cup).

Let the remaining water drip through and enjoy a fresh, flavorful cup of HOPE Coffee!


Tips:

Use filtered water. When brewing, always pour hot water directly on the coffee grounds rather than on the filter wall. Adjust measurements to taste.

Clean Water in Chiapas

Clean Water in Chiapas

Az de Oros, Chiapas, Mexico—The 23 families who make up the small, rural village of Az de Oros have always lacked access to safe drinking water. Because they must walk an hour each day to retrieve water, simple tasks such as bathing, cooking and laundry are difficult and leave the villagers especially vulnerable to disease.

Solo Cristo Salva, a church in a nearby village, heard about their struggles and wanted to help. Along with their pastor, Sergio, they partnered with HOPE Coffee to bring clean water systems to the families in this small village. Eighteen families attended the session to receive water filter systems and learn how to use them. They were so grateful for this life-changing gift of clean water!

As the training session was ending, Pastor Sergio also shared the good news of Jesus. All 18 families stayed long after the session ended, listening intently and asking questions about the message they had just heard!

The people of Solo Cristo Salva will be returning to continue to discuss the gospel message with the people of Az de Oros. Please pray that the seed planted would grow and many would come to know Him!

Thank you for choosing HOPE Coffee and being a vital part of providing families in Az de Oros with clean water and the message of the gospel!

From Children of War to Children of Hope

From Children of War to Children of Hope

Northern Uganda—Ugandan terrorist organization, the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA), has perpetuated unthinkable violence throughout Uganda over the last 30 years. Abducting children and training them as soldiers is among the worst of their crimes. During the LRA’s frightening reign, it’s estimated that more than 60,000 children have been left orphaned, uneducated, impoverished and in a state of devastation—emotionally, physically and spiritually.

When you choose to purchase Compassion Tea from HOPE Coffee, not only are you a part of life-changing projects and furthering the gospel in Honduras and Mexico, but you’re also a part of providing essential medical care to people in rural Africa! Thank you for choosing HOPE Coffee and Compassion Tea.

Among the victimized children is a boy named Justin who has lived through unimaginable terrors. Although his life was spared, the horrendous violence carried out on his own village and family left his heart full of sorrow, chaos and hatred.  He had no reason to hope for a better future. Justin is not the only child affected. The brokenness and evils caused by the LRA’s uprising has left an overwhelming amount of need in Uganda, especially for children.

Compelled by God’s heart for orphans, Village of Hope (VOH) works to restore the lives of former child soldiers, sex slaves and children orphaned by the devastating acts of the LRA. For the last 10 years VOH has worked to cultivate healing and hope in these ‘children of war’ by providing them with housing, nurture, education, counseling, and medical aid. The children continually hear the gospel message and experience God’s love throughout their time at Village of Hope.

Justin believed he had no future and that the rest of his days would be spent in sorrow and bitterness. It was when he was at his lowest that Justin became one of the first children to step through the doors of Village of Hope. For ten years the staff at VOH has poured the love of Jesus into Justin’s young life. He was given a safe place to heal and call home. He has received skills, values, an education and the chance to go to college. Most importantly, he heard the life-changing message of the gospel. Today Justin walks as a follower of Jesus!

“I thank God that through Village of Hope, I truly have found joy, love and peace in my heart and have learned to forgive in my life. It has built me to become a young man who teaches the word of God through the inspiration of Village of Hope.”

-Ogen Justin

Where there was once strife and hatred in his heart, Justin now has peace, love and hope. At Village of Hope, children of war become children of hope. They are able to take their new skills and the hope of Christ to their communities, country and beyond.

Hope After Tragedy

Hope After Tragedy

Hope After Tragedy

San José Tejulca, Puebla, Mexico—With only a very small water basin, the Ortiz family struggled to afford enough water for their daily needs. Because families in this village must pay for a truck to deliver clean water, having a large cistern means fewer deliveries and less expense. Just three months ago they began building a large cistern that would be able to store enough water for a week’s use.  However, during a tragic accident in the construction of the cistern, Silvia’s husband Christian lost his life. She was now left to raise her two small daughters alone, continuing to struggle to have enough clean water as the cistern was left unfinished.

After her husband’s death, Silvia met a group of Christians who invited her to their weekly Bible study. She began attending, sharing about her recent loss and the needs she was facing. The Bible study group, a part of Oasis de Agua Viva Ministries, decided to finish what Silvia’s husband had started—they partnered with HOPE Coffee to build the Ortiz family a cistern that would store a week’s worth of water.

As the project was underway, the members and leaders of the Bible study shared about the love of Jesus with Silvia, her daughters and Silvia’s father. During the construction, the Ortiz’s neighbors also heard about Jesus and even received Bibles of their own!

Though the Ortiz family has faced devastation, they have been able to see a glimpse of the hope and restoration that Jesus gives. The new water cistern has met a critical need as they no longer worry about having enough water to get through the day. The family has seen the love of Jesus in action, causing Silvia and her father to have a growing interest in the gospel. They continue to attend the Bible study to learn more about Jesus!

Because you have chosen HOPE Coffee, you are part of God’s provision of water to a recent widow and her children. Pray that through this gift she might see the love of Jesus and receive the greatest gift—eternity with Him.

A New Home and a New Faith

A New Home and a New Faith

A New Home and a New Faith

Juchitan, Oaxaca, Mexico—Maria had been following Jesus for just a few weeks when an earthquake destroyed her home and immediately put her faith to the test. The devastating earthquake left Maria and her two sons, Roberto and Jose, with nothing. Though she had a new life in Christ and a community of believers to call her own, she faced the tremendous need of a safe home for her family.

Her church, Cristo mi Unico Esperanza (Christ My One Hope), heard of her great loss and wanted to encourage her young faith. Pastor Albino partnered with HOPE Coffee to provide Maria’s family with a safe, stable home of their own. Along with the pastor and members of her church, many of Maria’s relatives came to help with the project.

As Maria witnessed the construction of her new home her faith was renewed. She began to know and trust God as her provider. Not only did this project strengthen her faith, but the love of Jesus that the church displayed also impacted Maria’s sister, Guadalupe. Soon after the house was complete, Guadalupe began to attend church with her sister where Pastor Albino shared the gospel with her. Guadalupe decided that she, too, wanted to follow Christ!

“I’m thankful to God that you have blessed me with this support. It’s been a huge blessing to me because I didn’t have a house, and now I have a home.”
-Maria Hernandez


Thank you for choosing HOPE Coffee and being a part of what God is doing in the lives of countless families in Mexico!

Thank you to Iglesia de Bautista Cristo mi Unica Esperanza and pastors Adan and Albino for their key roles in executing this project and sharing the gospel with our new sister—Guadalupe.
