Who Are We?

We make coffee. But we’re really in the business of waking up the world. We work to unite goodness with prosperity. We dream, then do. And above all else, we wake up and kick ass!

We roast Canada’s #1 whole bean coffee. Our Arabica beans are 100% certified Organic and Fairtrade. We’ve been doing this for over 25 years, smack dab in the middle of the Rocky Mountains.

And our coffee beans aren’t the only award winners around here. Our human beans kick ass too!
