Trevecca Nazarene University

New coffee shop to open on campus

A new coffee shop will open its doors on the campus of Trevecca Nazarene University in the coming weeks.

This will be the first coffee shop location for the non-profit organization, Abba Java. When Abba Java opens its doors, students and other members of the Trevecca community will be connected to orphans across the world.

Abba Java, first established in October of 2008,  is a non-profit grassroots organization dedicated to meeting the needs of orphans around the world through the sale of high quality coffee locally roasted in Franklin, Tennessee. It was established to provide financial assistance to orphans and to organizations that help orphans internationally and domestically.

Abba Java was created by Scott and Lynde Hord, who have adopted their daughter Gracie from Zambia, Africa. They began Abba Java in 2008 after returning from their first trip to Africa.

This first Abba Java location will be located in the newly remodeled Bud Robinson Building, which is now the home of Trevecca’s Center for Leadership, Calling, and Service.

Grand opening is scheduled for March 18, 2010. Hours will be Monday-Saturday 7:00 AM-11:00 PM, closed on Sundays.
