Great is Our Ground Rule
Flavor, consistency, preparation, transparency. A great cup of coffee shouldn't be out of reach. We'll do as much of the work as we can to get a great cup in your hand every morning. If our monster was sentient, we'd even send them to your kitchen to tackle that last step.
What We Care About
Thousands of Hours in Every Cup
New Harvest was founded in 2000 by Rik Kleinfeldt and Paula Anderson with the intent of making great coffee accessible to real people. Originally located in a drafty shed on the site of the old Washburn Wire factory in Rumford, Rhode Island, New Harvest now calls Pawtucket's revitalized Hope Artiste Village home. We honor the hard work of the many people who tended and processed our beans through careful roasting and faithfully cupping our coffee with our team.
A Different Way
We started building our Source Direct program in 2007 and we travel yearly to coffee farms in South and Central America. We carefully source our coffees from partners we trust and drirectly from farmers. Our Source Direct program allows us to personally work with producers to ensure the best outcomes for the producer, the roaster, the brewer, and all of our communities. We always pay at least 20% above the Fair Trade minimum for our direct trade coffee and often more than double for direct trade specialty microlots.
Our Coffee in Action
Our roastery is open to the public and our coffee is for sale by the bag and cup, Monday-Friday, 9AM - 3PM. New Harvest blends are also available throughout the region at Whole Foods Markets, our wonderful wholesale partners, and at our downtown Providence café. In addition, we offer classes and tastings for the home brewer as well as the pro barista. For brewing guidance at home, visit our Make Coffee page. Also visit our Events page.
New Harvest is committed to its communities. Through our Source Direct program, we are able to give back to the coffee community at origin. As a family-owned business, we are also focused on improving our local community. We donate to and offer support throughout the year to non-profits with a particular focus on teens, literacy, women's health, and the arts. We donate the profit from SoJo MoJoe sales to Sojourner House RI, a leader in the fight against domestic violence.
