About Us

Our Story...


Like you, we are a very regular family living a pretty regular life. Probably like you, life often feels a bit too small and centered around the day-to-day. Todd's a local church pastor in Western Pennsylvania and I am an administrator. We have two daughters and a son-in-law. 


About ten years ago, Todd heard about home coffee-roasting from our neighbors. Before we knew it, he was roasting coffee and the word spread fast to our family and friends. He built a bigger roaster, learned a lot, built a website, and began offering Hoperaising coffee for sale in 2013. Churches, restaurants and coffee shops soon began serving our great coffee.


Hoperaising is now how we offer the chance for others to experience great coffee while they give lasting hope. 


Our Mission…


Great Coffee. Lasting Hope.


Hoperaising makes regular investments to organizations who help victims of human trafficking, disaster relief, and pastoral care to missionaries.  We have supported those who offer lasting hope through short-term missions work and micro-loans. Some organizations who partner with Hoperaising for their fundraising purposes are Teen Challenge of Western Pennsylvania and the Kiski Area Band.


If drinking great coffee and giving lasting hope sounds good to you, we hope you’ll order today.
