For the release of our September shipment, we have selected a dynamic independent roaster located in the “hip” North end of Halifax, Nova Scotia. It was approximately four years ago that we stumbled upon Java Blend during one of several visits to the East Coast. The passion and joy exhibited by all of the team at Java Blend perpetuated a seemingly stereotypical vibe common across various cities in Nova Scotia.
During our visit, we took a personal tour of the roasting facility with the head roaster. The smell the green pits from the coffee cherries being transformed into what we have come to cherish every morning was intoxicating. We were extremely impressed with the operation and more so with the company’s orientation towards sustainability and unparalleled effort to source from the finest small coffee farmers across the globe.
