Hi! We are Shirley and Edmond.
We are the husband and wife duo who love specialty coffee. Our priority care is the quality of the coffee we bring to the market and your absolute joy and happiness drinking and receiving it.
We do what we do because we absolutely love doing it.
From sourcing quality green coffee, strictly specialty grade, to fine tuning the roast profiles through trials and errors, to packing and delivering to your door step, we simply enjoy each step. We believe coffees are moving away from the "strong, dark and bitter" traditional flavours, but heading forward to "balance, clean and sweet" delicacy and layered flavours. We roast our coffees to the upmost balance to bring out the synchronize notes of acidity, sweetness and body.
We support the family of Specialty Coffee Association (SCA) as the member since we relocate our company to Vancouver, Canada in 2016 from Hong Kong. Edmond has been judging, volunteering and competing in different SCA (previous SCAA) events since 2008, we are always excited to participate in these events and this is how we explore and motivate ourselves to pursuits better.
Getting a license doesn't mean everything but we believe it proves our professionalism in sourcing and choosing a quality coffee to our customers. Edmond is a licensed Q-grader since 2012. With the sensory and coffee knowledge re-calibration every 3 years with the Q-instructor, we are confident that we are not only maintaining our knowledge and sensory competency but also updating with the market expectations.
In 2019, we are so proud that we ranked at 2nd Place in National Brewers Cup by just using the beans we serve daily in the shop. It proves that our coffee beans are in competition level and our belief that a daily quality cup of joe can be affordable with amazing enjoyment.
No matter what obstacles we face, we do everything we can and keep "moving specialty coffee forward".
