Here, at Clipper Coffee, we are pleased to offer you the freshest, hand roasted arabica coffees available in the marketplace today. Being the coffee aficionados we have grown into, we thoroughly enjoy savouring the many complex coffee flavours and taking part in the pleasure of roasting the best bean varieties available from around the globe.
Our true passion for coffee started several years ago when vacationing in Peru. While enjoying the Latin-American flavours and cultural offerings, we continually heard about the outstanding local coffee. So we embarked on a mission to find ourselves a great cup. While in the city of Arequipa, we came upon a small café that served us a first-rate latte. Mesmerized by the taste sensations, we immediately knew that we would have to find a way to bring these fresh roasted coffee beans home with us in order to relive the experience.
Later in our travels, while on the Pacific Coast in a suburb of Lima, called Mira Flores, we crossed paths with a café roaster who was excited to talk to us about his roasting techniques and the quality of the green beans which he bought locally. We ordered up lattes and several pounds of fresh, hand roasted coffee to bring back to Canada. This is where the Clipper Coffee journey begins. Since starting our coffee roasting company, we have been able to visit several coffee estates and co-ops around the world, keeping in mind our primary commitment of searching out the best in fresh, organic and fairly-traded coffees.
Now that you know where our passion for coffee flourished, you should also know that Clipper Coffee only purchases premium, organic, and fair-trade arabica coffees. Our coffee broker assists us in picking the best beans available, which are then shipped directly to our Canadian roasting facility. Gary & Darlene Carlton
