I Have a Bean offers a chance at redemption and helps change attitudes about previously imprisoned people returning to society — all while making great coffee.
I Have a Bean is dedicated to roasting phenomenal coffee beans, procuring beans at the top 1% and winning numerous taste competitions. The company is also committed to hiring individuals released from prison, whom founder Pete Leonard notes are often considered the bottom 1% of society.
In Partnership with FAITH & CO.
Faith & Co. is a documentary series by Seattle Pacific University (https://spu.edu). which highlights the struggles, triumphs, and stories of people like you: businesspeople wrestling with what it means to live out business as their calling. Through these inspiring examples, filmed across three continents and 18 U.S. cities and featuring a wide range of industries — high tech, health care, retail, and property development — we seek to provoke questions and provide insights about what it means to act as faithful followers of Christ in business. Whether you are a business professional, a minister, a student, or simply someone interested in exploring how the Christian faith is lived out in the global marketplace, Faith & Co. challenges traditional assumptions and hopes to inspire you to re-imagine business practices to more closely align with God’s creative and redemptive agenda.
