Building New Hope (a non-profit organization) is pleased to offer certified organic, shade-grown and certified bird- friendly by Smithsonian, fair and direct trade coffee. Our regular and dark roasted beans are single-source and come from El Porvenir in Nicaragua, a worker-owned farming cooperative we’ve partnered with since 2002. Our decaf is certified organic and fair trade and is decaffeinated using a chemical-free Swiss water process and is sourced from cooperatives in Latin America.
And we are more than coffee! We pay our partner farmers 50% above the official fair trade price. We operate two supplemental schools for at-risk youth, and provide grants for education and infrastructure. In Pittsburgh, we engage with local schools and universities, faith groups, farmers, non-profits, community groups, and businesses to promote healthy ecosystems and spread awareness about how fair trade relationships can help reduce poverty and inequalities.
Keeping it local, there and here - El Porvenir’s hand-selected beans are freshly roasted and packed every week by 19 Coffee Company in Washinton, PA. BNH coffee is socially responsible, environmentally friendly, and educational. We can connect you with your coffee farmer and roaster.
