About Coffee

Do you roast date your coffee?

Roasted to order

Yes!  Back in 2001 we were the first company in Canada to roast date all of our coffee and provide a roast date guarantee.  We roast to order and guarantee that we never ship coffee more than a week old.  Here is a post on why coffee freshness matters.

Checkout our (ugly but informative) infographic to see all our coffees arranged from mildest to boldest.  We also indicate the most prominent flavour characteristics of each coffee.

We roast every coffee to bring out its best!  

Those studying low acid coffee have correlated it with lower caffeine, darker roasting, faster roasting, Arabica coffee, and beans sourced from Central America or Indonesia.  Our best choices meeting these criteria are: Guatemala Jaceltenango, Canopy, Shadow, Nicaragua Wood Thrush, or Honduras Howler Monkey Pitch Black. 

However, we found no statistically meaningful studies that it is the PH of the coffee that causes upsets stomach. In this post, we wonder if it is coffee freshness that is most impactful in reducing stomach upset and we call for scientific study to investigate.
