How We Source Coffee

We currently source most of our green coffee from Apex Coffee Imports and Forward Specialty Green Coffee Importers. They are leaders in the Canadian green coffee industry and provide us with transparent information, and sources from some of the most notable coffee farms in the world.

Our Approach to Roasting

We take a modern approach to coffee roasting, pulling inspiration from Scandinavian / Nordic-style light roasts.

We aim to bring out the most beautiful version of each coffee through delicate & tireless quality control.

Why 100g & 200g Bags of Coffee?

Our coffee comes in 100g or 200g increments. We do this to keep the prices of our coffee attainable. Many of the coffees we source are higher value, rare, or special lots from our favourite producers.

What is Resting Coffee?

Resting coffee is the idea that coffee needs time to de-gas after roasting. The idea of "fresh is best" seems to originate from darker-roasted coffee, where staling reactions occur faster than in modern, lightly roasted specialty coffee.

For the style of coffee we roast, we suggest waiting 5-10 days from the roast date to let the flavors peak.
We recommend brewing coffee within 1-2 months from the roast date.
