OUR STORY

 SOCIAL COFFEE, LIKE MANY GOOD THINGS, STARTED WITH PASSION AND CURIOSITY.  IN 2011, ARMED WITH A SMALL 1 KG ROASTER AND AN UNRELENTING MAKE-IT-WORK ATTITUDE, WE SET UP SHOP IN A CLOSET SIZED ROOM IN A BASEMENT. SEVEN YEARS, THREE ROASTERS, AND A REAL PRODUCTION SPACE LATER, THE COFFEE HAS BECOME PRETTY DARN GOOD (WELL, WE THINK SO ANYWAY).  WELCOME TO SOCIAL COFFEE, PROUDLY ROASTING IN VANCOUVER, BC.

 LIKE THE NAME IMPLIES, SOCIAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDSHIP ARE VERY IMPORTANT TO US.  THESE BELIEFS INFLUENCE ALL OF OUR DECISIONS, FROM THE GREEN COFFEE WE BUY TO THE RELATIONSHIPS WE CREATE. WE BELIEVE THAT SINCERE, ETHICAL BUSINESS PRACTICES CAN CREATE A COMMUNITY THAT IS GREATER THAN THE SUM OF ITS PARTS. AFTER ALL, WE'RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER.

ALL OF OUR COFFEE IS ORGANICALLY GROWN.  WE ALSO CONSIDER THE NON-CERTIFIED SOCIAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL INITIATIVES THAT THE FARMERS AND OUR IMPORTERS HAVE UNDERTAKEN TO IMPROVE THEIR LOCAL AND GLOBAL COMMUNITIES. YOU CAN READ ALL ABOUT THE GREEN COFFEES WE USE AT OUR ONLINE SHOP.
