Mennonite Church USA Convention Planning is excited to share a fundraising opportunity with you. We have partnered with One Village Coffee to bring back *Menno’s Best Coffee. A portion of the proceeds from every bag of coffee you sell comes back to your youth group and the peace and justice work of MC USA.
One Village Coffee will be roasting up three specialty coffee options: Menno’s Best Dark Roast, Menno’s Best Medium Roast and Menno’s Best Decaf. They will be available for purchase in 12 oz. packages for $15. For each package sold, youth groups will receive $6 (40%) and $1 will get donated toward MC USA peace and justice work. Your youth group will receive free shipping and 2 Menno’s Best T-shirts for all orders over 70 bags of coffee! Any order under 70 bags will be charged a discounted FedEx rate based on weight.
We have tried to make it as simple as possible for you to take advantage of this great fundraiser! Youth groups can participate in the following ways:
- Pre-order quantities of coffee and sell them directly
- Download the order form to pre-sale coffee, place one big order, and distribute to those that made purchases
- Encourage friends and family at home and elsewhere, to purchase coffee on our website, One Village Coffee will ship the coffee them directly, and your group will receive credit for those sales
How much will our youth group earn from this?
- Your group will receive $6 (less shipping) per bag that you sell. Orders over 70 bags will receive free shipping and 2 Menno’s Best T-shirts.
If we qualify for Menno’s Best T-shirts, what sizes will we receive?
- Sizes for your 2 Menno’s Best T-shirts will be randomly selected and shipped with your coffee order of 70+ bags.
How soon will orders be shipped?
- Orders will ship seven days from date order is placed
Can people order individual bags online?
- Yes, individual orders can be placed on the website. Purchasers will have the option of designating who receives the proceeds.
Can I have an order shipped to another location?
- You can indicate where you would like to have the order shipped. This will allow you to order a bag of coffee and have it shipped to friends or family in other parts of the country.
Does the coffee come in whole bean or ground?
- Coffee comes in whole bean unless you request to have it ground. If ground, coffee will be ground at the size for a drip coffee maker.
When will our youth group get our portion of the proceeds?

How long will this fundraiser be available?

Is this Fair Trade coffee?

We give special thanks to Goshen College who first introduced Menno’s Best in the 2015 MC USA convention held in Kansas City. Menno’s Best coffee created a buzz in its first year, raising a total of $26,695 for Mennonite youth groups attending the 2015 Mennonite convention in Kansas City. In the seven months that Menno’s Best coffee was available, 5,331 bags were sold on behalf of 89 church youth groups!
