Canada is known for its sparkling lakes, towering pine forests, and bedrock of solid granite. When our founder's family carved out a homestead in the heart of Muskoka in 1862, they were driven by a pioneering spirit that continues to this day, and drives everything we do.
Our handcrafted blends were developed in, and inspired by Muskoka. Coffees like Black Bear, which delivers a bold, well oiled, smokey taste with a growl. Or our signature flavoured coffee, Muskoka Maple, that starts with a blend of South and Central American beans, and then adds a subtle flavour that evokes memories of a cold, clear spring morning at the maple sugar shack.
Being a pioneer means being willing to be first. We're proud to be the first coffee roaster in Canada to source green beans exclusively from Rainforest Alliance Certified farms, in eight different countries stretching from Indonesia to Kenya to Costa Rica. Not only are the rainforests protected through sustainable farming, but the farmers are paid fairly and the communities are strengthened with a wide range of social programs. We believe this to be the best certification program in the world.
In 2016, we became one of the first companies in the world to introduce certified 100% compostable single serve pods. The Muskoka Roastery is also a Carbon Neutral company, and we are striving to achieve a Zero Waste target.
We recognize that we are fortunate to live and work in a place like Muskoka, where our roots are deep, so every year we channel at least 1% of annual sales back into community and environmental protection programs, through our Sustain initiative. Strategic partners include organizations like the Muskoka Conservancy, where we are helping them set up and manage nature reserves, and Trails Youth, who provide opportunity for at risk youth to grow through experiences in the outdoors.
In the past twelve months, we’ve had people from 100 different countries around the world visit our website, and we deliver our coffee all over the globe through our online Shop. Plus, our most popular coffees - Black Bear, Howling Wolf, Loon Call, and Muskoka Maple - are now available in over 700 stores throughout Ontario and Atlantic Canada.
When we started out, we were inspired to elevate coffee quality through the focus, dedication and passion of handcrafting and micro-roasting. Years later, that hasn't changed one bit. It's rewarding when that pioneering spirit is recognized in the marketplace, which reinforces our belief that...
