DSC_0268Born out of a desire to help people, Brickhouse Coffee Roasters is a business ministry of Horizon Christian Fellowship. The ministry is located on Horizon’s beautiful 98 acre campus in a late 1800’s two-story brick house (hence the name).  In keeping with the character and nostalgic feel of the house, Brickhouse Coffee Roasters roasts their beans in a refurbished 1905 Royal #5 coffee and peanut roaster.

Brickhouse Coffee Roasters is operated and managed by missionaries, Jared and Lora Stayton, who have recently returned from Southern Spain where the vision for a mission minded coffee ministry grew immensely being immersed in a culture with a passion for family, social gatherings, and, of course, coffee!

DSC_0256On the mission field, experience came first hand about the need missionaries have for sustainable finances for themselves and their ministries. A discovery was also made about the need for sustainable jobs and opportunity in areas where unemployment is high and the economic climate is bleak. Jared and Lora became burdened to help bring a solution.

Coffee, being the second highest traded commodity behind oil, provided that opportunity.

The vision for Brickhouse is to bring a model of sustainability to individuals, families, churches, schools, local businesses and organizations.

Sustainability provided  to those individuals who share our passion for coffee through vocational training for students of Calvary Chapel Bible College and business minded missionaries. DSC_0276

Sustainability provided to churches, schools, local businesses and organizations through private labeling and fundraising opportunities.

Sustainability provided to those who farm the coffee beans (through direct trade practices). Brickhouse has intentionally partnered with faith-based organizations who are continually making connections with new farmer friendly and direct sources for green coffee.  Direct trade can pay up to ten times that of fair trade practices.  Combine that with being faith-based, this not only ensures true economic sustainability for these farmers, but spiritual sustainability as well.

Once the coffee has been sourced and sampled, Brickhouse Coffee Roasters carefully and artfully roasts each batch according to its region bringing out the natural characteristics and best flavors the bean has to offer. These beans are then made available to our wholesale accounts, and through our private mobile barista service.

The proceeds from these beans go back into the training model, ministry, missions and the community.
