Best green beans in Canada

26 Jun

A coffee company like no other

Green Beanery is a Canadian non-profit company, created and staffed by environmentalists at Probe International and its sister organizations. We not only strive to bring you extraordinary coffees and coffee-making products from around the world, we also work to right failings in the world-wide coffee industry.

Our non-profit business begins with the small coffee farmers who tend their crops in Africa, Asia, and Latin and South America, producing niche coffees with characteristics as distinctive and extraordinary as their local ecology. In contrast to these exceptional coffees from small farmers catering to specialty markets, mass market coffee focuses on uniformity and low cost. The demand by large scale coffee producers for uniform beans undermines the market for specialty coffees and thus the ability of small farmers to stay in business and maintain the genetic diversity in the world’s store of coffee. Some coffee varieties have become extinct and others are in danger of becoming so.
Green Beanery promotes the niche coffees in smaller coffee producing areas in two ways. First, we encourage neighborhood-based micro-roasting in small coffee shops and local roasteries. Second, we encourage roasting right in the home using a variety of easy-to-use, home roasting machines. Small-scale, freshly roasted coffee, whether produced in your neighborhood or your home, supports small farmers, allowing them to keep planting traditional varieties rather than forcing them to shift to mass market crops. No less important, freshly roasted beans produce incomparably superior coffee – beans begin to lose their flavor within hours of roasting and they become stale in a matter of weeks. The environment also wins: Creating niche markets for little known coffee bean varieties helps to maintain the world’s store of genetic diversity.

Green Beanery supports the environment and sustainable development through policies designed to empower small farmers and local economies. All earnings from Green Beanery’s operations support the work of Probe International, a federally registered Canadian charity that works with citizen’s groups around the world to protect their lands and their livelihoods

    I obtain my green beans here and have also purchased roasting equipment from them..I especially like the fact that they are non-profit..they are affiliated with an organization that provides fair wages for the pickers of the beans..
