Take the plunge: fill
your cafetière with
conviction coffee!
Individuals and churches can support
persecuted Christians simply by using Release
International’s own great-tasting brand
develop our own great-tasting Hazaq
Coffee. Hazaq is the Hebrew word for
‘strong, firm or courageous’.
Christians face hatred and
persecution in more than half of the

every cup that is drunk.
We want to give churches and
individual Christians the opportunity
to buy their coffee in accordance
with their convictions, knowing that

the opportunity to stand strong with
persecuted Christians.

restock. And what about your church?

the most popular drink in the
world and according to the
British Coffee Association more than
two billion cups are consumed every
day; 98 million of those are in the
UK. A sophisticated ‘coffee culture’
has grown up around this popularity.
How is your coffee roasted? Where
does it come from? Do you grind
your own beans? How long should
it stand in the cafetière before you
plunge? And beyond the questions
of taste and brewing etiquette the
brand of coffee we drink can also
say something important about our
wider values. Coffee companies often
align themselves with particular
causes and promote those concerns
through their marketing and financial
At Release International we love good
coffee and we also have a message to
share. Back in 2019, with the help of
