Our Story

We are the Mann's and adopted our sweet son November 2018 from China. We were able to visit international orphanages (Russia & Romania) at young ages, creating in us a desire to adopt after seeing the desperate need for families to say "YES!" to these precious children. We lived in China for five years as teachers and saw up close the vast amount of children with special needs in orphanages and foster homes. We finally qualified to adopt from China in November 2017 and we were able to bring our son home one year to the day after we started the paperwork! Praise the Lord! 

We had the privilege of visiting our son's orphanage two days after he was placed into our arms. Our hearts broke for all the precious souls we left behind and knew the moment we stepped out of his orphanage that our adoption journey was only beginning. We started the journey to bring another "precious baby" home from China in the summer of 2019. We are matched with our newest son, Asher, and have all the paperwork ready to bring him home! As of right now, China is not issuing travel approvals, allowing adoptive families to go to China. He has some special needs, so we are praying we can bring him home as soon as possible and give him the support he so desperately needs. 

We started this coffee roasting business to assist in the mountain of adoption expenses and used 100% of the profits to bring our son into our family. Back-to-back adoptions are incredibly expensive, however we didn't want finances to stand in the way of helping another child. We have been roasting coffee personally in a small home roaster for the past twelve years and decided to turn this personal hobby into a business. Our family and friends have greatly enjoyed our freshly roasted coffee over the years and always encouraged us to sell it on a larger scale. We are so excited to share our high-quality, small-batch roasted coffee with you, as well as working hard to raise money to bring precious children home. A perfect blend!

Our adoption is now fully funded, so we are able to support other adoptive families and family preservation charities! $1 from every bag sold and a portion of tips received at events go directly to the featured family of the month! Check out our "Featured Families" tab to learn more and connect with us on social media for a daily update.  Contact us (haobaobaocoffee@yahoo.com) if you are an adoptive family seeking to raise funds to bring your precious child home!

We also partner with two charities to better support families:
