“Coffee with a purpose” means that we want to do our part to make the world a better place today. We know it starts with just one person who cares enough to make a difference, to strivefor excellence rather than settle for the norm. We partner with people like Jose Luiz, in Guatemala who is committed to excellence by cultivating and crafting by hand the best coffee that he can produce. He toils in the tropical climate of the highest mountains, turning a raw product into something special with his best intentions. We at The Haven honor his commitment by being the final step of this laborious process. We are the face and translation of his passion for life which he puts into each bean. By roasting in-house, allowing the fine-tuning of flavors to specifically complement the brewing method, we then unite our combined endeavors with coffee connoisseurs who appreciate an excellent cup of coffee. Our combined commitment to connect the product with people shapes our direction and approach in providing a peaceful atmosphere, a haven that you can experience shelter from the storms of life if only for a moment.
There are many who don’t know this peace; that is why we also partner with Light House For Life. South Carolina reported 72 human trafficking cases in 2016. Lighthouse for Life has been taking steps to educate the community on ways to decrease and ultimately eliminate this atrocity. As a haven to girls ages 12 to 21, they strive to provide grace and restoration to these victims that are rescued. They transform them into survivors on the way to complete restoration. Together, with your desire for excellence and your support, we are making the world a better place today with portions of our proceeds going directly to help Lighthouse for Life and Guatemalan farmers like Jose Luiz and others.
Think of The Haven as a tapestry, where seemingly random threads in all different colors, cultures, and customs, are woven together onto an invisible grid (the 4 corners of our world) and into an astonishing picture of life. We believe that behind this tapestry is the intentional unseen hand of a weaver entwining our individual days into relationships that form embroidered patterns that beautifully fit together and bring purpose and people into our lives.
This is a window into our heart that contains not only the desire to provide the best flavor and aroma of coffee, but to approach our craft with excellence amplifying our value in coffee, people, and connection. We want to serve you with a sensory experience rich and full of connection to the world around us. Everyone is worthy, not only of our service, but our attention and our commitment to make the world (our community) a better place today.
