Coffee, the finest organic suspension ever devised.
(Star Trek: Voyager)
All our coffee is fairly traded
At the Water Shed we import fairly traded and when available organic green beans from all over the world through a local broker in Vancouver. We do our utmost to stay informed of where the beans are being sourced from and that growing and working conditions are good for the growers.
We roast our own coffee
Using a local roaster, the beans are roasted to our tasting and flavour. We have an array of varieties to suit most taste preferences. However, we are known in Walnut Grove for our specialty in the darker roasts.
