Dedication to the craft of roasting
Over 15 years of focussed attention to roasting excellence.

As youth pastors, Seth and Heather realized the power of coffee to draw people into deeper community. A great cup of coffee is a common bond of hospitality all around the world; it is a powerful tool for ministry.
In 2001, we opened our first of four coffee shops and began roasting coffee. Over the years, our passion for using coffee as a tool to share the light of Christ has grown into an obsession — Your Cup Counts is that obsession!
We exist to help you fund your ministry goals.
Mission and Methods
Simply put – our mission is to offer a unique way to fund important work that changes the world. Your Cup Counts seeks to treat the Creation with the respect it deserves and to treat it’s people as children of God.
We respect the farming communities by paying top dollar for great coffee beans.
We respect those who work with us by paying at least a living wage (currently 22.5% higher than minimum wage) and to encourage margin for rest, family, hobbies and faith.
Finally, we take a very hands-on approach to serving you, our valued client. We are available to handle questions or just to chat if you need someone to talk about life with.
“Because of the outstanding customer service and
excellence of the product, our family is thrilled to
continue to partner with Your Cup Counts
to support both Young Life and our
freshly roasted coffee cravings!”
