Since 1997 Bean North Coffee Roasting Company Ltd has been roasting fair trade coffee in the northern boreal forest of the beautiful Takhini Valley, northwest of Whitehorse, Yukon Territory, Canada. We have been offering coffee lovers a sustainable choice… premium quality certified organic and fairly traded coffees from around the world. “We believe fair trade is holistic and everyone including coffee farmers, staff, customers, and are environment needs to be treated with respect and fairness,” say owners Michael King and Helen Voogd.
We believe that the farmers who grow our coffee deserve a high quality of life and a healthy environment to live and work in. Following that belief, we have been building long term working relationships with producer groups and paying a fair price. That ensures higher quality coffee and allows farmers and their communities to achieve some of their dreams.
We continue to be inspired by the people who grow and care for the coffee we buy, by our coop that facilitates its transport north, by those who roast and brew a magic blend and by customers who love our coffee and support what we do.
North to South, Fair Trade is about relationships, people, family, birds, and communities. By choosing to drink certified fair trade coffee you are part of a powerful medium supporting positive social and environmental action. Can you taste all this in a cup of Bean North coffee, you ask?
Yes! And you get great tasting coffee too…
