Since February 2012 Mountain Coffee Ltd. has been importing specialty green coffee and providing Canadian Roasters a large selection of green coffee sourced from the finest growing regions around the world. We import conventional and certified grown coffees to meet the demand of today’s social conscience consumers.
A stickler for quality and having a passion for coffee, Mountain Coffee founder and owner, Lionel Robitaille spent over three decades working in the coffee business. In the early days he serviced coffee equipment. Later he sold – selling packaged roast and ground coffee to restaurants. His love of the brew eventually led him to start up a food service coffee business, which led to sourcing, and finally he’s become a green coffee merchant. His ultimate goal has been to help roasters sell their perfect cup.
Today, Mountain Coffee Ltd. sources, imports and stocks a wide range of green coffee from around the world. Mountain Coffee ships to Roasters all over Canada each business day from their Certified Organic, Fairtrade, and Rainforest Alliance warehouse located in Delta, British Columbia. Roasters are provided quick order fulfilment, no charge samples, sourcing services, regional sales support, and use of their sample roaster and fully equipped Cupping Lab.
Our goal is simple. Mountain Coffee knows the future is in education. As specialty coffee consumption increases in Canada the need for education in this exciting field continues to grow. Creating the Cupping Lab was our first step in becoming a centre for roasters to learn about various coffees. Growing for tomorrow means offering training classes to educate and support new and upcoming roasting professionals. It’s the future we share with you today.
