MEET THE ONES TO MAKE IT HAPPEN
IN THE COFFEE INDUSTRY
AND IN THE CLUB MINISTRY
My current place of residence is in Elmira, Canada, but I have called many places home and many friends family over the years. I work in construction as a painter and love it! I would rather be outside than indoors and barefoot than wear shoes. I'm a writer and a runner -- the latter more of a struggle than the former. I dream big and there are a lot of things I enjoy, but nothing tops a great cup of coffee and good conversation.
Go-to beverages: Wild Ginger Latte (of course), Maple Latte or Americano with a little whipping cream and maple syrup
-- AKA The Wild Ginger
Small Town Coffee Roaster
I met Dwight Peachy in a downright awkward but miraculous way -- reaching out to a local cafe to find out who their roaster was which they gladly shared -- and I could not be more thankful they did.
Dwight approaches each roast with precision and heart while simultaneously keeping his wife and daughter (and little on on the way) at the forefront of his priorities.
He's a great guy and a phenomenal roaster. We count ourselves blessed to be partnered with him.
Go-to Beverage: Good fresh medium roast pour over or French press
LONG MILES COFFEE
Coffee Grower/Exporters, Burundi
I am always tempted to say that I came across Long Miles Coffee by accident, but I know deep in my heart that things like this are rarely accidents.
They take great pride in building community -- one farmer, one bean and one roaster at a time.
Each person I have worked with through this process has been wonderful and though they have grown into a larger company, they have managed to stay personal and intentional. We can't wait to work with them for years to come!
JEN AND PHIL SNELL
Hope Ministries, Brazil
Jen and Phil moved their family of four to Brazil thinking they were planting a church. Through a series of events, what they actually ended up doing was reaching out to girls prostituting themselves on the streets of Joao Pessoa. Their heart for these girls mirror's the Father's Heart for them and the girls can feel it. They released an eye-opening documentary about their work there and the Manor Team had the privilege of hosting a showing. Immediately they connected and have felt like family ever since.
