New Hope Coffee

Enjoy a cup of New Hope Coffee!

Your purchase helps provide youth training and employment opportunities through the restoration and operation of historic American diners!

In 1872 Walter Scott first offered coffee from his lunch wagon to customers on the streets of Providence, Rhode Island. He unknowingly inspired the creation of an industry that would later become an American icon, the diner.

In the entrepreneurial spirit of Walter Scott, the American Diner Museum, in collaboration with the Rhode Island Training School, Bryant University and Struever Bros. Eccles & Rouse has been working with a disadvantaged youth population through the restoration of historic American Diners. This collaboration, the New Hope Diner Project, provides educational, vocational and employment opportunities to the youth in the care of the Department of Children, Youth & Families, Division of Juvenile Correctional Services. All proceeds from coffee sales go to the New Hope Diner Project, a self-sustaining program.
