About our Coffee

Mercedes Beans Coffee

We specialize in Fairtrade, Arabica coffee beans, from plants grown at elevations above 3,000 feet.  Research has shown that coffees grown at higher elevations have fewer acidic and caffeine properties. Less acid means more flavour. Some of our coffees are grown as high as 5,000 feet.

Our coffee beans come from over 20 countries around the world and are certified organic.  Why is this important? Green coffee beans are porous.  Pesticides easily penetrate the beans (and other plant parts).  What doesn’t get destroyed in the roasting process, we ingest.  The whole world benefits from fewer pesticides and chemicals.  Some of our coffees are also grown in United Nations Bird Sanctuaries.

Custom Coffee

The roasting process also has an effect on coffee flavour.  Our roasting process involves green coffee beans being suspended in hot air, resulting in a uniform roast enhancing rich flavour.

We tailor coffees to your taste by micro-custom roasting 8 pounds at a time. Bulk coffee roasting (several hundred pounds at a time) compared with micro-custom roasting is like preparing a meal for 1,000 people vs. a gourmet dinner for 2.  We take great pleasure in our ability to meet the demands of a wide variety of tastebuds.

Coffee roast is an individual preference.  Medium roasted coffees offer layers of flavour, while French (dark and oily) roasted coffees eliminate the layers and cut right to the coffee flavour. A wide variety of coffee flavours are described as being nutty, fruity, sharp, full, thin ect.  What matters most is how satisfying the flavour is to you.

Our roasted beans are currently being sold locally, as well as shipped regionally and across North America.  We guarantee freshness by roasting and shipping our orders within 48 hours of ordering.

We invite you to let us satisfy your palate with our premium coffees, and to treat your family and friends no matter where they are. Let us roast your coffee just the way you like it.
