Canoe started in 2015, on a home built roaster in a back yard shed in downtown Kelowna. In a city with limited specialty coffee options, we decided to take it upon ourselves to share our passion with the city we love. The canoe coffee trailer quickly became a Kelowna celebrity serving specialty coffee at the Kelowna Farmers Market for 2 years.
We now have a roastery and cafe in the North End of downtown Kelowna, roasting and serving what we believe is super delicious coffee. We have long since outgrown the home roaster, and use the best modern equipment to allow us to showcase amazing small lot coffees from all over the world. We source out and buy the best coffee we can find. Our roast profiles are typically on the lighter side, allowing the true characteristics of the coffees origin to shine. However we will admit our dark roast is a damn fine coffee as well.
We want our coffee to ground you amidst the chaos. To give you a tiny moment of stillness. To allow you to mindfully consume something beautiful as a part of your day-to-day happenings. It’s kind of like sitting in a canoe… Just chill out, float on, and enjoy something epic.
Grown worlds away. Roasted in Kelowna, BC.
