This week marks the 15th Anniversary of our Café!
Over the past 15 years, we have proudly devoted ourselves our values in Birds and Beans Café here in Mimico! We think it is working out. 😉
When we opened here, everyone thought we were crazy! But we saw potential. And we chose to make our Mimico Café an expression of our values.
We are grateful for the support of the community as we dared to serve certified organic, bird friendly and fair trade coffee at a time that specialty coffee had not yet made its way west of the Humber River! Some of you are still with us. We thank all of you who have crossed our threshold.
We remain steadfast to our most basic values as reflected in our tagline: “A richer taste, a richer earth.”® We express it in our commitment to the growers of certified Bird Friendly coffee, and our in our standard of excellence in roasting, brewing and serving you the the most sustainable coffee in the world.
We carry our values through every conceivable detail, more than I can mention here: compostable packaging, native garden with food pods, no single use plastic, no palm oil, no GMOs, mostly organic ingredients. We value our community and we show it with involvement like being the sole sponsor of 10 bird walks a year. And we value each other, inviting committed employees to join into café ownership so we can build the future we want together.
We are proud to be a different kind of café. And we look forward to our next 15 years here in Mimico.
