Bivouac is a micro coffee roasting company, roasting certified organic coffees, deeply rooted in the Portneuf territory (Capitale-Nationale). For 12 years, we have been sharing our passion for specialty coffee while remaining in line with our human values and our ecological commitments.
Bivouac was founded in 2011, under the name LpB – La p’tite Brûlerie, in the picturesque village of Deschambault. The founder, Mélanie Gagné, had her dream become reality when she set up her artisanal roaster shop, which was an immediate success. Over the years, the company has become a key third-wave roaster in the region and stands out for their local and international commitments.
After managing a coffee shop and roasting and distributing organic beans for more than 10 years, Mélanie began a transition that would lead the company to focus entirely on roasting coffee. She first bought a building in a neighbouring town, in Saint-Basile-de-Portneuf, where the roasting activities would be relocated. This workshop is now the headquarters of the company. Subsequently, selling the Deschambault coffee shop to another young, dynamic entrepreneur brought forth a new business, La Dinette du Cap.
Today, Bivouac is dedicated solely to its primary vocation and to what it does best: roasting organic and fair trade specialty coffee beans. With more space and time, the team develops the aromatic profiles specific to the terroir of each coffee. The company thus regains their characteristic simplicity and authenticity, the very spirit of Bivouac.
“We are excited to welcome this new phase of our journey with you, dear coffee lovers. Let our coffees accompany you wherever you are!”
