A coffee company co-founded by late pastor Jarrid Wilson is making a special blend in his honor with 100 percent of proceeds benefiting Wilson’s nonprofit suicide and depression outreach, Anthem of Hope.
Cause Roast, established in 2015, announced on social media last week that it has created the “HOPE” blend in memory of Wilson, who died earlier this month at the age of 30 by suicide.
Wilson was an associate pastor at the California-based multicampus megachurch Harvest Christian Fellowship, which is led by renowned evangelist Greg Laurie.
Along with his friends Greg Pittman and Aldo Lihiang, Wilson co-founded Cause Roast, an organization that donates 15 percent of its proceeds to fund water development projects in underserved countries.
According to its website, each bag of Cause Roast helps provide clean water for four people.
The new HOPE blend honoring Wilson will only be a limited edition. The multipurpose blend is billed as being “great for everything from espresso to auto drip coffee and most everything in-between.”
The proceeds from the blend will go to Anthem of Hope in order to “help continue Jarrid’s work and legacy.”
“A blend of 3 different coffees from South America and Africa,” the online listing for the blend reads. “On espresso, the HOPE Blend is sweet and clean with subtle hints of fruit. As a drip, it is well balanced and complex.”
According to the tasting notes, it is a smooth blend of mild citrus and light chocolate.
Wilson and his wife, Juli, launched the Anthem of Hope as an outreach to people struggling with depression and suicidal thoughts in 2016.
