Here at The Roasters Pack, our goal is to take you on a coffee adventure. Think of us as your tour guide through the delicious world of specialty coffee and craft roasters.
Back in late 2013, I (Suneal) tasted a cup of specialty coffee. It was… spectacular.
“What’s the heck is up with this cup? Why does it taste… so good?!”
It definitely sparked some intrigue (it was an Ethiopian Natural, of course - if you know, you know).
But my main challenge with coffee?
I wanted to try new coffees, but it wasn’t easy or convenient to get my hands on specialty coffee.
I wanted to learn more about coffee. But... there wasn’t an easy way to do that either.
So, I reached out to my good pal Adam and we met up for a coffee in Kitchener-Waterloo. I shared with him the idea for a coffee discovery project… and he was into it!
That day, we sketched out some logo ideas and started working on the concept, and landed on the name.
After eight years here we are! Thousands of bags of coffee packed and labeled and shared with people all around Canada and the world.
Every month, we worked to make the experience better. We got some press! We made more tweaks. We learned about the challenges with coffee sourcing equitably. We met some of you at different coffee events. We hired incredible people (See the team below)! Our team has grown, but every day our main goal stays the same:
We want to be your coffee tour guide. Think of us like your nerdy coffee friend.
We do have a few other goals though, like growing specialty coffee, breaking down coffee education barriers, and also… making coffee simple. But we’ll talk more about that below. First, let us introduce you to the team!
