Organic, Fair Trade, Single Origin Coffee Beans
All our coffees are 100% organic, naturally shade grown and bought at fair trade terms. And, we offer single origin coffees because we are passionate about providing distinct flavour experiences!
Freshly Roasted on Premise
While a great bean is a good start, the roasting process is where the coffee’s flavour is produced. To ensure the freshest, best tasting coffee, we buy our coffee green and roast it ourselves daily, in small batches, at our Granville Street Roasting House. We roast our organic coffee beans to provide optimum flavour, which means that we vary our roast to bring out the best of the bean.
Beyond Fair Trade – Cafe Femenino
Fair trade is great, but the Cafe Femenino Movement ensures more money goes back to the women coffee farmers to provide assistance with social and economic programs in their communities.
Coffees listed below with “CF” are purchased through the Cafe Femenino Program.
