Green Coffee Available February 12 2014

For home roasters, we offer green coffee of any of the single-origin coffees. We tend to stock several more varietals in our inventory than we list on our website and our selection rotates frequently. We charge a flat rate of $7/lb. for most coffee.

Please feel welcome to drop by our roastery on Granville Island and see what we are offering - our hours are Monday to Friday: 9 am to 5 pm. If you live outside of Vancouver or if these times aren't ideal for you, please send us a note via the contact form letting us know that you're interested. We can supply anything from 1 lb. to 100 lbs.

Coffee Tasting Fridays! February 11 2014

Come drop by Origins on Granville Island on Friday, February 14th for a free coffee tasting. We'll be serving Colombia Nariño Excelso between 10 and 11 in the morning, and we'll switch over to our Ethiopian Gedeo Yirgacheffe in the afternoon between 1 and 2. 

Please feel free to bring your coffee-related questions! Wondering what coffee goes best with Valentine's Day chocolates? Or what coffee works best with a Chemex? AeroPress? V60? The difference between wet processed, pulp natural, and dry processed coffees? We got you covered.

Closed: Monday, February 10th, 2014 February 07 2014

We'll be closed on Monday (Family Day in British Columbia), but we'll reopen and start up the roaster again Tuesday morning.

Cupping This Afternoon January 16 2014

Very happy with the Rwanda COOPAC: lots of acidity, sweetness, caramel, and grapefruit.

Online Store Up-and-Running December 17 2013

We're excited to have the new store up and running. Our current selection is limited in order to ensure optimal freshness, but will rotate frequently. There will be lots of new additions soon, so stay tuned.

We ship all consumer orders on Thursdays. Orders placed on Wednesday or later will be sent the following week.

Please let us know if there are particular coffees or regions that you'd like to see more of in our line up!
