Grise Fiord

Grise FiordI am happy to announce that we have new client from Grise Fiord, the northernmost, year-round inhabited place in Canada!

This is exciting because we are helping to ensure that coffee lovers in smaller, remote communities have the same affordable access to great coffee as everyone else. Since it doesn't get much more remote than Grise Fiord, it seems to be working. We are Canada's local roaster!



Some interesting facts about Grise Fiord...


i) Population: ~150 residents

ii) Average yearly temperature is -16.5 °C, making it one of the coldest inhabited places in the world!!!

iii) They receive 24 hours of sunlight from June through early August, but 24 hours of darkness for much of winter (hence the need for coffee)
