Our History and Mission Statement

Mission Statement

Before opening Mercedes Beans and Model Teas, we decided that excellence in product and service would be our key to success. This philosophy is reflected by the high quality of our coffees, teas, chocolates, and gift items, the superior coffee produced by micro custom hot-air roasting, and the friendly way in which we serve our customers. We believe that the people in our northern region deserve the finest quality products and service.

Our History

Have you ever gone out of your way to have something you really wanted? Living in northern British Columbia, we craved a really good cup of coffee, and, like our friends and neighbours, used to order coffee in bulk. Eventually we asked ourselves whether we could provide people in our region with excellent roasted coffee. So we opened Mercedes Beans & Model Teas, and the rest, as they say, is history. Thanks to the continuous support of our customers, we continue to flourish as more and more people come to appreciate our fine products, gifts, and excellent service.

We also believe in social responsibility. That is why we joined TransFair Canada, the international Fairtrade Cooperative. Selling Fairtrade Certified TM coffees helps growers receive a fair market value for their products, and helps communities improve their infrastructure.
