Producing Partners and Locations

Everything starts with our coffee producers, the farmers who cultivate the finest certified organic ad fair trade coffee we roast for you. Bean North Coffee Roasting Co. Ltd. is member of Cooperative Coffees, a green coffee importing cooperative and together we purchase coffee directly from coffee farmers. We visit these communities, meet the producers and their families and have long term relationships with them.

We explain the decaffeination process Bean North uses and introduce you to coffee cupping and the excellent team from Coop Sol in Montreal who ensures Bean North receives only the highest quality coffees.

Fair Trade Proof

We at Bean North believe that being a self-proclaimed and widely-recognized Fair Trade company means we need to honestly and openly fulfill every aspect of Fair Trade, which is much more than just a higher price. First and foremost, Fair Trade is a long-term, equitable partnership between farmers and roasters. Total transparency allows all actors to operate at the same level, without concealing anything, which is an essential part of what Fair Trade should and can be.

Fair Trade FAQ

It's Fair Trade

As a leading source of income in the coffee growing regions and a highly valued commodity, coffee can be a powerful tool to bring about positive change for small farmers, the environment, and our health. For us to drink coffee as cheaply as we do, growers must be paid below market value for their green beans so that the middleman can turn a profit at each step from the field to the commodities markets to the table. Bean North offers farmers an alternative… a “fair price” for the coffee they grow.

Organic

Bean North has been a certified organic facility since 2006 and is Certified Organic by SAI Global Certification Service Pty Ltd (Canada).
