News Flash... 100% Arabica everytime, all the time!
"Wine is for aging, not coffee." Ken Hutchinson, Starsky and Hutch
WHAT WE'RE ALL ABOUT
When the first pioneers came to the Canadian Rockies, they brought with them hopes, dreams and beans. Yes, beans, green coffee beans! For hundreds of years coffee beans were not roasted till they were meant to be, when you needed them.
Pioneers roasted beans in a cast iron pan, smashed them with anything handy. (a rock or pistol handle maybe?) Then hot water was poured over the mash making the freshest brew possible. That my friend is how coffee it is supposed to be enjoyed, fresh! You see, coffee is like wine in that exposure to air oxidizes it making it taste awfully funny after a while.
That is why at BRC, we roast the beans just like the pioneers did, as close to the time you want to brew your pot. At BRC we go back to how coffee was meant to be enjoyed, freshly roasted and infused only with the fresh Rocky Mountain air!! No hustle and bustle here folks, Just Darn Good Coffee!
We offer the freshest 100% arabica coffee products available with respect for fair trade, organics, rain forest, bird friendly, shade grown beans and of course the environment. The way coffee was meant to be enjoyed has been somewhat lost in modern times. We at BRC strive to bring it back to the way the pioneers and our Forefathers enjoyed it, local and fresh. For hundreds of years every area had it’s roaster as they did their butcher, baker and General Store. Or you roasted your own! Having been lost for some 150 years due to mass production systems, community roasters are one of the fastest growing food & beverage business’s. So, in reality this is nothing new, we’re simply going back to our roots - good, fresh coffee. Roasting green beans and supplying local restaurants, coffee shops and food stores is our main focus as a wholesale bean supplier. Roasted beans, a tasting counter, coffee orientations and coffee related items are being offered at our on-line General Store. We have a small retail section at the Roasterie too! Green beans will be available for sale to the adventurous “home roaster” as well.
OUR HOURS ARE NOT SET SO CALL OR TEXT AHEAD AND WE WILL ACCOMODATE OR MAKE A RESERVATION.
We have created an enticing venue for people to experience “Roasting in the Rockies”! Coffee came to Banff with McArdle and McCabe and the discovery of the Hot Springs. We take people back to this Era by creating a very different Banff experience, complimenting our history and our town in a positive manner.
