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.
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.
