Foglifter Coffee Roasters  Roasting specialty coffee in the trees overlooking Shawnigan Lake. Vancouver Island, Canada.

About yesterday afternoon... Lots to look forward to as we ease into the holiday season. Have a great week everyone!

#TBT to our 20 year relationship with @batwcoffee. On the North Shore for 28 years, these folks have been working away roasting coffee, being positive hubs in their neighbourhoods around town, and quietly creating long term, meaningful relationships with coffee producers along the way.
-
While, as you know, we travelled with them this spring to visit @ricardozelayacoffee’s farms and the schoolhouse that was built in 2008 and continues to be funded by The Bean, that is but one of their decades-long partnerships.
-
Year after year, they purchase substantial volumes of coffee from El Paraíso Cooperative in Sololá, APROCASSI in Peru, Toraja farmers cooperative in South Sulawesi and many others, *ahem*, around the world without a hint of self-congratulation.
-
We appreciate our Bean family and the way they’ve inspired us to invest in the lives our coffee partners in the field. And we are honoured to share some of our shots of what they have created with the Zelayas at Escuela Privada Finca Carrizal. #fuelledbycaffeine

Link in bio for their beautiful mini documentary on the school.

East Van, where you at? @landaglobal spilled the beans and @viawesome has the scoop. Snippet below, full details at the link in our bio.

The owners of the popular neighborhood coffee shop on Main St, Bean Around the World (Main & 20th), will bring back a cafe to #MainandTwentieth with a new name, new coffee and new look next year. Foglifter Coffee Roasters will open its doors in October 2019 with its signature line of coffee, small-batch roasted by the owners on Vancouver Island.
"Landa Global is thrilled to be welcoming Foglifter back into the neighborhood. They were an institution and I know they have been sorely missed by the community. It was a popular gathering place for people of all ages in the area, and I know residents will be excited to have them back." says Landa Global Properties CEO, Kevin Cheung.

Espresso. Every. Day. Our Eight Man is wildly popular but we can’t get enough of the single origins. Both our @ricardozelayacoffee Honey and Ethiopia Yirgacheffe explode on espresso with their marzipan and praline notes brightening a classic syrupy caramel base. ☕️🚀

This fair trade, organic Peru La Florida just dropped. We roasted it a shade beyond medium and are savouring the rich, creamy mouthfeel and notes of chocolate layered beneath subtly tart baked apple fruit.
-
It’s the cup you want to sip with spiced coffee cake and a wood stove.
-
Cooperativa La Florida is not messing around in their pursuit of a more sustainable coffee grown by an evermore progressive and successful community. And with your sipping, you are advancing them on their path.
-
Within the cooperative, members learn environmentally friendly-farming and crop diversification techniques aimed at creating additional sources of income. Putting their collective weight to good use, La Florida also funds micro-financing for women who run household businesses, rural healthcare clinics, and infrastructure projects to maintain five roads, three potable water systems, and three schools.

Ricardo Zelaya Honey Process - You’re going to want to grab this coffee while you can. It’s been one of our most popular and our trusty @ricardozelayacoffee importer @wccoffeetraders has sold out!
-
You can get it now at @shawnigancoffee, later this week up in Rossland at @alpinegrind, in the not so distant future at East Van’s @espressotec and online all the time at the link in our bio.
-
I’ll be serving samples on our pourover bar for @cobblehillcakeco and @thevintagebrush today. Swing by and say hi!

SLOW COFFEE SUNDAY. Our subscriptions arrive in time for the weekend so you can live in a low gear a little longer.

October already and it’s going to be great! We’re loving how this Yirgacheffe bridges seasons with summery brightness and wafts of jasmine underpinned by warm, dark cherry and syrupy praline.
-
A solid, delightful first cup of joe for the work day in your home brewer and a showstopper in the @aeropress at your weekend brunch.
-
It’s headed out with our Paper Route and subscriptions. Hit the link in our post or bio to get your delivery going.

Wrapping up a busy week on the road and in the roastery. Two new releases you’ve got to try - Guatemala Honey Process from @ricardozelayacoffee and an Ethiopia Yirgacheffe whose warm sweetness and soft jasmine notes provide the perfect antidote to the arrival of a greying, rainy autumn. Dialing in our October releases as we speak. Have a great weekend, friends!

We had a great time cruising Victoria yesterday! After snaking through hundreds of fig, pear and olive trees, sampling grown-on-site oranges, cured olives and prune plums and picking up a lemon tree at the incomparable Fruit Trees & More in Deep Cove, we skipped down to Chinatown.
-
Not much tops the cheerful, diverse atmosphere of @thebeanvictoria made even more alive this month with art by @dobelldesigns.
-
A few fresh reads from @munrobooks and another stroll through @francdambrosio’s beautiful 1515 Douglas for a coffee and a shoe-tying lesson capped off the day perfectly.

Rossland! What’s up?! The folks at @alpinegrind have our fair trade, organic Guatemala Átitlan beans up for their Third Grind program.
-
We are chuffed to have our coffee shuttled up to this picturesque mountain town where for years John has been serving delightful baking and healthy, hearty café fare alongside a top notch coffee program.

It’s a delight to work with retail partners who are passionate about what they serve. Martine at @shawnigancoffee has always been a great example of this ethos.
-
With enthusiasm and care, she deliberates over your preferences as well as provenance and seasonality when choosing coffees. Her attention to the smallest details (and the way her team is the same) is what helps make Shawnigan House a community hub.
-
We all know she knows us well which is why we want to know her better.
