A Love for Coffee. Arlette is originally from Guatemala City, born and raised in coffee country. She has always been passionate about coffee; and, while she went to college to study Graphic Design, her passion and love for coffee quickly called her back to her roots. She has been in the coffee business for over 13 years now, having gotten her certifications for barista and roaster.
Arlette's Testimony. After living for herself and making many worldly choices, at 18 years of age, Arlette was led to surrender at the feet of Jesus and to give Him her life. When she was 20, she moved to the U.S. where she met and married her husband, Josh. Ten years later, Arlette and Josh are thrilled to be the foster parents of two beautiful twin boys. What a powerful testimony of redemption!
ATCNI, Coffee, and Rescue Coffee Roasters. Arlette loves the ministry of Adult and Teen Challenge. It is not only the means through which her husband Josh became a new creation when he too surrendered his life to God; but it has also provided Arlette an unexpected opportunity for ministry...and not surprisingly, it involves coffee! Helping launch Rescue Coffee Roasters, Arlette is the master of blends and single origins. Over the years, she has traveled to many countries studying coffee and visiting coffee farms to bring the very best coffee to the Midwest.
