Our Coffee

Specialty Coffee
Specialty coffees, as defined by the SCAA, are typically roasted light with a strong focus on bringing out the perfect balance of complex taste of each particular coffee origin, similar to that of a fine wine. The best specialty coffees are creamy and complex and have a harmonious balance of body and acidity. Specialty coffee is a fast growing movement in today's coffee culture and many customers now seek out these superior quality coffees. This new wave of specialty coffee is commonly referred to as the "Third Wave" in coffee. You can read more about the progression of speciality coffee and the "Third Wave" of coffee Here.

Organic and Fair Trade

We maintain a great selection of both Organic and Fair Trade certified coffees. Organic and Fair Trade is highly beneficial to both the producer and the consumer. By growing organic coffees, the producer eliminates harmful chemical pesticides which in turn helps preserve the land for future generations and also keeps the costs for producing the coffee lower. Fair Trade guarantees individual coffee farmers a fair market price and drastically improves the quality of life for many families in third world countries. Our Organic and Fair Trade coffee has been independently certified for your highest satisfaction.

Coffee Facts

  • Coffee is indigenous to Ethiopia, where the beans were first consumed around 500 A.D. 

  • Today, the crop is enormously valuable to the economies of many developing countries.

  • Annual coffee consumption worldwide is estimated to be around 400 billion cups, or 12,000 cups per second. 

  • For many of the world’s 25 million coffee farmers, coffee is a labour intensive crop that frequently yields very little financial return. Fair Trade is changing that, providing a guaranteed minimum price, social and economic premiums, and much more.
