Our Values

 

Supporting The Future of Coffee

 

At Espanola Coffee Roasters, we value the entire supply chain, from the artisan farmers and producers growing our coffee and processing it with care - to our importer who deals with the farmers, offers respect and pays them well for their hard work - to the roaster who tries to bring out the flavour characteristics intrinsic to the coffee - to the retailer who is making it easy for you to buy a great product. The process from bean to cup is a complicated one, so we have to do our part to make sure everyone is taken care of, or else great coffee may not be around for us to enjoy. 

 

We donate funds to World Coffee Research, a not for profit organization. Their mission statement is;

"Grow, protect, and enhance supplies of quality coffee while improving the livelihoods of the families who produce it"

We are also Certified through Fairtrade Canada and are working on becoming Certified Organic. Fairtrade Canada helps farmers in the commodity coffee market by setting a minimum price/lb of coffee to protect against market fluctuations. Read more about Fairtrade Canada at;

We strive to bring you high quality coffee, roasted fresh and roasted with care for you to enjoy for years to come

 

Thank you for your support!
