This coffee is unknown to us. It is a mystery coffee provided by Forward Coffee as a means to engage and connect the Canadian coffee community. It's part of a friendly roasting competition to help showcase competition coffees as well as Canadian roasters.
It is only available in a 60gram sample size so that you can brew 3-4 cups. We'd love to have you in on the conversation. Add a sample or two to your cart and forward us your tasting notes via email/contact form. Results of the competition will be announce after February 5th.
About Forward Coffee
Forward Coffee is a Canadian source for unique, transparent and thoughtful green coffee offerings. They look to connect, build and grow the Canadian Specialty Coffee Sector by bringing in a dynamic range of coffees, backed by producers they believe in and are committed to moving forward with.
With over 30 years of collective experience in the industry, the team at Forward is dedicated to help build dream roasting operations, to architect the bridge to origin and best execute a coffee program. They're not looking to just be a source for green coffee, they're hoping to be a guide to a successful roasting/sourcing operation.
As a roaster based in Canada, it can be challenging to find unique coffee offerings while supporting a Canadian based importer. As Canadians, we battle pricing constantly being in USD, working our cost of goods in pounds and then often paying to have the coffee brokered over the boarder. Not to mention inconsistent pricing templates. Forward is designed to change that.
Forward takes coffee very seriously, sourcing offerings that have been successful in a multitude of different competitions globally. By choosing to work with Forward, we gain access to producer relationships which two-time Canadian National Barista Champion, Cole Torode, has been developing throughout the last five years as a green coffee buyer. These are relationships based on trust, progress and mutual benefit - a similar type of relationship we're hoping to grow and establish with you and our roasting program.
