Local Deliveries

AGSS6It's important to note that we roast to order. This means we have no roasted coffee in-stock which means we need a day or two of notice to avoid crushing disappointment. We also have a variety of packaging choices available. These include our trusty kraft 1 lb paper bag, plus bio compostable 1 lb and 5 lb valve bags AND our nifty resealable 1/2 lb valve that looks remarkably like our kraft bag (these are particularly good for gift giving). In general, we recommend valve bags when the coffee is likely to be sitting in storage for more than 2 weeks. Paper is fine if you plan to consume the coffee right away. Beans have a longer life than ground coffee because there is less surface area exposed to light and air. Also, we highly recommend home grinding.

Here is the thing: we love our fairtrade coffee and want you to love it too! For more info, Call us at 416-534-6335. Outside of the city you can call us toll free at 1-800-566-9273 or e-mail us at We accept Visa and MasterCard. Please note that for security reasons, we only accept credit card info via fax or phone. We are pleased to be able to offer free delivery in Toronto on orders of 10lbs or more.
