Our goal is to bring you the most flavourful cup of coffee we can, accompanied by some of the Valleys freshest food. We want to create a place where you can gather with friends and family after a day of hiking in the mountains, or being out on the water.
By sourcing in-season coffee beans from exceptional producers around the world and roasting it right here in downtown Courtenay, we ensure our coffee will exceed your standards. We support local, and that means opting for quality over price, and ethics over ease. When our only option is to buy our green coffee from other countries, we are sure to go to the small, independent family-run farms, and support local the world over. Buying from the smallest farms means the largest impact, buying organic and sustainable means a healthy earth, and roasting them in the valley means fresh coffee!

We roast small batches of high quality, ethically sourced beans right here in downtown Courtenay. Vancouver Island is our home and has inspired us from day one to respect nature and community. This influence on our style of business means patience and care is taken to ensure that our product is sourced from farms that are sustainable, and benefit the regions they are grown in. We take pride in selecting the most flavourful coffees, starting by finding the most unique flavours from each region and working to make sure that our beans have a positive impact on the world, from the farmers home, to your cup!
Once we have found beans that meet our criteria, the next step is to create blends that highlight the best qualities of each bean. Roasting in small batches helps to create consistency and full flavours.
Because we are so picky about quality, there are times in the year when certain beans are unavailable, and are substituted with similar flavour profiles. It means a small variation in flavour, but a consistency in quality and ethics that we are proud of!
