Committed to Sustainability
Gourmet Coffee Specialists is a locally owned and operated company that believes coffee can have a profound effect on the world. Whenever possible, the choices we make and the products we offer are all designed to have a positive environmental and social impact.
Our exclusive Signature Collection features eight unique blends that are either sustainably sourced, organic, Fair Trade certified or Rainforest Alliance certified. These products not only taste great, but also ensure that the communities responsible for producing them are ethically supported for their work.
For those looking to reduce their environmental impact on single serving cups, our zero waste coffee pods feature beans roasted in green facilities, packaged with compostable film and produced using all-natural ingredients.
The impact of choosing sustainable coffee can be magnified by choosing the right brewing equipment. Implementing a holistic approach to sustainable coffee in your office is easier with our extensive range of equipment options suitable for every workplace.
While we strive to deliver some of the most sustainable products on the market, our commitment to the planet goes far beyond the products we offer.
Since 2011, we’ve been a participant in Trees for the Future, an international charitable organization committed to responsible land management. For every pound of our Signature Collection Private Estate coffee we sell, two trees are planted, which has resulted in over 25 thousand plantings so far.
Closer to home, we’ve partnered with the Assiniboine Park Conservancy to offer our Polar Bear Blend, a Fairtrade Canada certified coffee that gives 25 cents per pound sold towards their mission of Arctic education, conservation, and research.
