Coffee with Pierrevy Polyte

Join The Peace & Justice Center for a coffee tasting and social hour hosted by Pierrevy himself. Learn the ins and outs about the coffee industry and how a direct trade partnership works.

The Macaya coffee in the store is supplied by Pierrevy and is grown in Peak Macaya, Haiti. As profits grew, Pierrevy invested more into his community, founding a school, which at one point enrolled 500 students. Unfortunately, when Hurricane Matthew hit Haiti in 2016, the school was destroyed, along with all the houses in Peak Macaya. The community was devastated, and Pierrevy focused the Macaya Cooperative’s efforts on fundraising and rebuilding the village.
