About Us & Our Mission
Chris and Angie Carey are the proud owners of Bristol Blends Coffee and Teas, located in the Black Hills of South Dakota. The Carey's moved to South Dakota from Minneapolis in 2014 in order to serve the Oglala Lakota Sioux people in Pine Ridge, South Dakota. Since then, the Carey's have helped lead a church in Pine Ridge Village where they taught Sunday School, worked with teens at Pine Ridge High School as well as helped meet the needs of single moms and families in need.
Bristol Blends Coffee and Teas was started as a way for our family to remain serving this beautiful community of people. Every dollar generated from our company helps support our family on the mission field. We understand that many companies sell "coffee", but few can match the unique flavors of our beans all while helping support a worthy cause!
Bristol Blends Coffee and Teas is a partner to our non-profit organization, Ashley Down Mission. These names reflect our heart for missions! Bristol Blends is named after the town of Bristol, England where a prolific pastor named George Mueller lived and worked in the 1800's. He, through prayer alone, built and ran 5 orphanages; taking care of over 10,000 children in his lifetime. The name of the property he built the homes on was Ashley Down, in Bristol England. We welcome you to visit our ministry site (www.ashleydownmission.weebly.com) to read more of what that work involves.
Bristol Blends exists to bring the most amazing air roasted coffees and flavorful teas to all of you while providing a way to continue our work of being a family on a mission. Thank you for supporting our journey!
