​Big News!

Thank you for your support of Wanderlust Coffees these past few years. You have helped us accomplish our mission of “providing quality coffee that helps to support growers and producers in other countries, as well as provide a continuous funding stream for non-profit organizations, while nurturing awareness of world cultures and promoting beneficial conversations and friendships.”

After three years in the coffee business, we are delighted to announce that The Lancaster Stroopie Company has purchased Wanderlust Coffees, effective today. With their efficient production center and experience, extensive distribution networks, and employment of resettled refugees, they will be able to grow the business and accomplish our mission beyond what we can do. Stroopies and coffee are a perfect match!

About The Lancaster Stroopie Company
The Lancaster Stroopie Company, based in Lancaster, Pa., since 2008, provides meaningful employment in support of refugees as they work to overcome language and cultural barriers. Currently, their team makes an average of 10,000 stroopwafels and many gallons of ice cream each week. The addition of coffee will help them reach their goal to scale up for greater impact and more job creation in service to the refugee community.

Jennie and Jonathan Groff, co-owners of The Lancaster Stroopie Company, describe what this new opportunity means to them and their team, “We feel so honored to pick up with the work that Timm and Kristina started. Here at the Stroopie Company, our mission is to provide meaningful employment and language/cultural training for our new neighbors from around the world. Our team is so diverse, coming from several different countries. And yet there is a very common thread of hospitality and warmth as we all share our stories of humanity together. I can't think of a better product to offer along with our Stroopies than coffee... a product that originates from all over the world, and yet so wonderfully contributes hospitality and warmth to most every culture. We are excited to continue to offer the same excellent coffee that you have to come to expect and look forward to creating even more jobs for those settling in the Lancaster area.”

What this means for you
The Lancaster Stroopie Company is picking up where we leave off and are eager to continue roasting, packaging, and shipping organically grown, fairly traded, and air roasted coffees. In addition to supporting non-profit organizations by buying their unique blends, your purchase will also now help to provide a sustainable income for resettled refugees in Lancaster!

We have trained the Lancaster Stroopie Company's quick-learning staff and ask your patience and support as they fully make this transition and grow the business to have a greater impact in the community. We ask you to show them some love by giving them a great start; purchase coffees today at wanderlustcoffees.com!

Local pickup will now be available exclusively at Lancaster Sweet Shoppe, 141 North Duke Street, Lancaster, Pa., where you can also purchase stroopies and Wanderlust Coffees drinks, plus ice cream, chocolates, and more.

We are honored to have you along for this journey and are excited for what lies ahead. Thank you!

Timm, Kristina, and Thaniel Wenger, founders
