New Harvest was founded in 2000 by Rik Kleinfeldt and Paula Anderson with the intent of making great coffee accessible to real people. Originally located in a drafty shed on the site of the old Washburn Wire factory in Rumford, Rhode Island, New Harvest now calls Pawtucket’s revitalized Hope Artiste Village home. We honor the hard work of the many people who tended and processed our beans through careful roasting and faithfully cupping our coffee with our team.
We started building our Source Direct program in 2007 and travel yearly to coffee farms in South and Central America. We carefully source our coffees from partners we trust and directly from farmers. Our Source Direct program allows us to personally work with producers to ensure the best outcome for the producer, the roaster, the brewer, and all of our communities. We always pay at least 20% above the Fair Trade minimum for our direct trade coffee and often more than double for direct trade specialty microlots.
Our roastery is open to the public and our coffee is for sale by the bag and cup, Monday-Friday 9AM-3PM. New Harvest blends are also available at throughout the region at Whole Foods Markets, our wonderful wholesale partners, and our two cafés. In addition, we offer classes and tastings for the home brewer as well as the pro barista. For brewing guidance at home, visit our Make Coffee page.
New Harvest is committed to its communities. Through our Source Direct program, we are able to give back to the coffee community at origin. As a family-owned business, we are also focused on our local community. We donate to and host fundraisers throughout the year for non-profits with a particular focus on teens, literacy, women’s health, and the arts. We also donate a portion of our SoJo MoJoe blend sales to Sojourner House RI, a leader in the fight against domestic violence.
