Our limited edition Forest Blend has been created by our roasting team using a blend of Peruvian and Guatemalan Coffee.

We have partnered with Raincoast Conservation Foundation and Pender Island Conservancy to fundraise for their project to preserve and protect a special eco-system in the Gulf Islands, BC.

The KELÁ_EKE Kingfisher Forest is located on S,DÁYES (Pender Island) and is under threat of development as portions of the island are sold to private owners. The land itself has significant importance to the area and links wetland headwaters to the sea across 45 acres of Coastal Douglas- fir forests and its associated habitats including  Belted Kingfishers, whose population numbers have been in decline for the past two decades largely due to their sensitivity to human disturbance.

With more than 99% of the original forest removed, and limited protection of the remaining land base (11%) almost every ecological community associated with this zone is provincially listed as threatened or endangered.

Given the high percentage of private land (80%) and intense development pressures, opportunities for ecological protection are limited, and if they do exist, expensive. 

As climate change places unprecedented pressures of uncertainty on food security and living conditions for the species of this region, the best chance to improve their survival and build resilience in perpetuity is by purchasing and protecting private land. 

$4 from every bag purchased will be donated to this cause.

A nice taste for a good cause!

The smooth flavor of this coffee is amazing and shout out to Fernwood for this initiative for taking care of our planet.



Brew Guide

Our head roasters have always vouched to brew what tastes good to you. We use these guides as a starting point and a general process through each method to brew the best coffee.


  • Preheat your brewing vessel
  • Weigh your ingredients
  • Make sure your brewing vessel is clean
  • Use water that is almost but not quite boiling
  • Make sure to wet all the grounds evenly
  • Rinse any paper filters with hot water before use
  • Be sure to grind the coffee to the correct coarseness for the brewer you are using
  • Fresh coffee will "bloom" which is CO2 being released as hot water hits the coffee
  • To adjust strength change the grind, not the ratio of coffee to water. For stronger tasting coffee grind finer for less intense flavor coarsen your grind.
Conical Pour Over

  1. Wet filter with boiling water and discard water
  2. Put in 20 grams of medium ground coffee
  3. Pour in 100 grams of water & allow coffee to bloom
  4. Pour in remaining 240 grams of water little by little & use the stream of the water to push any grounds off the sides of the filter
  5. When all water is in stir once in a circular motion
  6. Let drip till done
French Press

  1. Put in 55 grams of coarse ground coffee
  2. Pour in 935 grams of water just off the boil
  3. Stir
  4. Fit top on to retain heat and wait 4 minutes
  5. Plunge
  6. Decant to another vessel

  1. Wet filter with boiling water
  2. Put in 40 grams of medium ground coffee
  3. Pour in 200 grams of water & allow coffee to bloom
  4. Pour in remaining 480 grams of water little by little & use the stream of the water to push any grounds off the sides of the filter
  5. Let drip till done
Moka Pot

  1. Add preheated water to the fill line.
  2. Grind your coffee to a medium setting, similar to table salt. Add 15-17 grams to the filter basket.
  3. Screw on the top portion of the brewer. Careful as it will be hot.
  4. Place brewer on your burner over medium heat.
  5. Open the lid to view the brewing and remove from the burner when the stream starts to go from brown to blonde.
  6. Enjoy straight up or add some hot water for a mellower cup.

  1. Place the top portion of the brewer upside down on table
  2. Fit the bottom section over the rubber basket (At this point the numbers should be upside down on both parts of the brewer.)
  3. Put in 15 grams of medium ground coffee
  4. Pour in hot water to top (around 250 grams)
  5. Stir and make sure there are no dry grounds hiding at the bottom
  6. Let sit for 45 seconds
  7. Affix the filter cap with a wetted paper filter into the fitting (this should be at the top at this point) and depress a tiny bit so the slurry is close to the filter.
  8. Carefully invert the entire brewer onto your heated mug and press to the bottom.
Espresso Machine

  1. Grind coffee very fine. It should be similar to confectioners sugar.
  2. Weigh your dose. 19 grams is a good starting point.
  3. Distribute the ground coffee as evenly as possible. There are tools for this or you can do it by hand.
  4. Tamp the coffee, making sure the bed of grounds is as level as possible.
  5. Purge your group head by running a small amount of water into the drip tray.
  6. Insert the portafilter and engage the brew right away.
  7. The shot should take several seconds to start flowing and the total time should be around 30 seconds.
  8. If you are making a milk drink you can steam the milk while your shot is pouring.

A few espresso fundamentals:

  • Always brew with a clean, hot, dry portafilter.
  • Use your hand to swipe away any loose grounds on the rim or tabs of the portafilter before inserting to brew.
  • If the shot is running too slow you need to coarsen the grind. If the shot is running too fast fine the grind.
  • Make grind adjustments in small increments.
  • Always pull a couple of shots after an adjustment before deciding whether or not to readjust.
  • Always purge off a bit of steam before and after you steam milk to clean the wand out. Never soak the steam wand or leave it submerged in milk.
