Yukon coffee roaster reduces carbon footprint
Bean North Coffee Roasting Co. Ltd. knew reducing their environmental stamp wouldn't be easy. The company imports its beans from Central America and roasts them in the Yukon before shipping the finished product to customers around North America.
But Michael King did a lot of work, made a few changes and managed to dramatically reduce the company's carbon footprint, and earn national recognition in the process.

We're excited to introduce a new coffee this month: Honduras Comsa - Honey Processed. This special organic Fair Trade coffee is very sweet, clean, has flavours of honey and tropical fruit, with a creamy body.
Please note that Bean North's cafe is closed on Monday August 17 for Discovery Day.
Our importing organisation Cooperative Coffees is excited to announce a career opportunity for a General Manager who will lead this green coffee importing cooperative in helping to create a fairer, more transparent and sustainable system of coffee trade which benefits farmer growers, their families and communities throughout the world.
