About Us

Coffee that makes a difference.

Argh! We're on a mission to discover incredible coffee in a way that's sustainable and transparent. As part of The Crew, you will set sail on a voyage to make a positive impact on the lives of coffee farmers.
 
Our sister company WE THE ORIGIN purchases green coffee using the Direct Trade approach as much as possible. Direct Trade means we are buying coffee directly from the producers, bypassing the middle buyers, sellers, agents and the organizations that control certifications. This enables us to ensure that coffee producers are paid fairly and allows us to build relationships with farmers based on trust and transparency.
 
Check out our Transparent Origin coffees, where we clearly display the price paid to each producer for the coffee. Coffee producers tend to get taken advantage of, but not on our watch. So grab your cups and let the voyage begin. 
 

Our roast-to-order schedule.

 
We roast-to-order on Mondays and ship immediately.
 
All orders that have been received up to the end of day Sunday (eastern time, since we're based in Toronto) will be included in the Monday roast.
 
This schedule enables us to maintain maximum quality and consistency in each batch.
 
Our coffee generally tastes best at least 5 days after the roast date and within 3 months of the roast date.
