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.

In May, Bean North's featured coffee is Congo Sopacdi. We feature this coffee to focus your attention on Run Across Congo. This month, an all-women team of runners will embark upon a 7-marathon, 7-day journey along the shores of Lake Kivu in Eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) to raise awareness and funds for the inspiring female coffee farmers, farming families and cooperatives working toward gender equality and stability in the region.
Bean North's cafe-in-the-woods is open Tuesday through Sunday during the month of May.
Bean North launched our new online store last week!
