The Hill Climber Coffee Story
His Eyes purchased property in Samepdrana Honduras (in the mountains above Comayagua...you have to climb quite a few hills to get there!) for the Church plant there in 2006 with the help of Christ's Church in Jacksonville Florida. The Church building and parsonage are both located on that property, where additionally there were quite a few coffee plants. After selling that coffee to use in the Church, the idea germinated and we started seeing how we could plant and grow more coffee to help the Church and eventually the mission overall.
We have farm administrators, volunteers, and paid seasonal help to take care of the now multiple properties, which include nearly 20 acres above Sampedrana, and another nearly 20 acres near another mountain village many miles (and climbing many hills...sense a theme here?) in Las Botijas.
When we sell Hill Climber coffee, it helps pay our workers well, improve our facilities, and in advancing this arm of the mission we eventually help us overall be less dependent on donations from abroad.
Our long term goal is to provide employment, generate some side crops to help people in our areas, do some teaching, and of course be financially self sustaining as a coffee ministry and eventually contribute enough back to the mission to help all the areas of the mission grow.
The more you buy, the more we can do. We are looking for not only customers of our great roasted coffee, but also partners abroad that could buy green coffee.
If you want to order more, or talk to us about green coffee, please contact us below to talk more about how we could partner together in that way.
