Three Stories Coffee is a part of Buffalo's 716 Ministries. We have a direct trade relationship with the farmers that grow our coffee which enables the farmers
to increase their earnings and overall standard of living. The coffee is locally roasted by 716 Ministries’ staff and all profits go directly into 716 Ministries programming. These three realities or stories; direct trade with farmers, locally roasted, and not for profit, give the coffee its name.
716 Ministries runs social enterprise businesses to provide career, mentoring, and hands-on training opportunities for community residents. These social enterprise businesses include a fully licensed residential and commercial construction company (BUILD 716) and a facilities management company (SERVE 716) which provides janitorial, landscaping, and maintenance services to local nonprofit organizations. 716 Ministries also runs credentialed workforce development programs (TRAIN 716) in Work Readiness Soft Skills, Construction, and Customer Service, which create employment, career, and entrepreneurial opportunities for Buffalo's underserved populations. 100% of profits from Three Stories go towards our community programming.
