“Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me. I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in Me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing. If anyone does not abide in Me, he is thrown away like a branch and withers; and the branches are gathered, thrown into the fire, and burned. If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit and so prove to be My disciples. As the Father has loved Me, so have I loved you. Abide in My love.”

John 15:4-9

The word "abide" means to endure without yielding, remain; to accept or act in accordance with. A "culture" is a set of shared attitudes, values, goals, and practices that characterizes an institution or organization. In John 15, Jesus tells us to “Abide in My love.”

'Abide Culture Coffee Roasters' started as a dream. Talks around a kitchen table and on our living room couch have become a reality. Much sacrifice, hard work; continual prayer and faith: these attributes propel us forward. A small shed has been transformed into a usable workspace, which we lovingly call "The Roasting Shed".

'Abide Culture Coffee Roasters' is located in the heart of Kootenai County. Coeur d'Alene. Idaho. The gem state. Summer stars prick the black, construction paper sky as light shines down; warm nights envelop the shed. Fall turns deep greens to burnt oranges, yellows, and reds; a cold chill is felt in the air. Mercury drops like the snow; the shed is warmed by the rotating hot drum of the roaster while snow piles and quiets the outside in dead of winter. Spring sunsets declare another day done; the opacity drops, casting brilliant colors through the roasting shed windows. Framed hand-drawn art hangs on the walls, which we call "the gallery". Photography prints fill the gaps. A map pinned with destinations visited. This is the Pacific Northwest.

Everything we do is by hand. Dialing in every small batch roast: meticulously fine tuning, recording and graphing usable information, next to the heated drum as the coffee beans perform their dance; from green to yellow, cinnamon to brown: all the while using our senses to navigate our craft. Sight. Sound. Smell. Taste. Early mornings. Late nights. We all roast, taking the helm of the roaster. Teaching and always learning. Accurately weighing beans. Checking each roast. Manually. Even our bags are hand stamped by each and every family member, from the oldest to the youngest. We are truly a small, family owned business: roasting to cupping, stamping to bagging.

The Abide Culture vision is simple: to make great coffee while supporting ministries and missionaries that make an impact in people's lives by sharing the love of Christ. Each and every item bought supports our family, our local community, and our ministry: AB1DE. The purpose of AB1DE is to serve and support ministries that are dedicated to the spread of the Gospel, ministries impacting our local community, and missionaries abroad. Abide Culture Coffee Roasters donates 1% of our profits to assist these ministries: Humble Beast, Streetlights Bible, The Bible Project, and Real Choices Clinic. Our goal is to assist more ministries, missionaries, and expand AB1DE to become its own ministry to serve our local community and missionaries.

“The question is not what we intended ourselves to be, but what He intended us to be when He made us.
He is the Inventor, we are only the machine.
He is the Painter, we are only the picture.”
C.S. Lewis  [excerpt from his book "Mere Christianity"]

From our family to you, we thank you for supporting us: from pop-ups, local markets, and online purchases. Our "Roast Coach" is sketched, planned out, and being developed to better serve you.

“Don't be selfish; don't try to impress others.
Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves.”
Philippians 2:3
