Coffee and Tea

*_Coffee_*
At The Granary we take coffee seriously. Not only is coffee a staple in our personal lives, it is also the largest commodity based industry in the world next to military arms and oil. It is the second most popular drink in the world…next to tap water! However, not all coffee is created equal, nor are all coffee farmers treated equal. Unfortunately the following facts still ring true.

95% of the coffee sold on the market is 100% stale.
Millions of coffee farmers live at or below the poverty line due to unfair trading practices.
Technified coffee production is the 2nd largest cause of Rainforest destruction.
Technified coffees are the 2nd most heavily pesticide sprayed crop in the world.
Over 75% of the coffee consumed in North America is grown on these technified coffee farms

Fortunately, Equator Coffee is also serious about coffee, providing its customers with organic, fairly traded arabica beans, roasted to perfection. The natural environment is protected with sustainable farming practices, coffee farmers are paid fairly allowing them to better prosper and we, the consumer, gets to enjoy a better cup of java. Its a winning combination for all!

The Granary carries a selection of Equator signature blend beans in bulk including the bold Mufferaw Jo and Algonquin Dark and the smoother Feakin’ Good and Sweet Justice blends. Medium and Dark Decaf beans are also available. Grind them yourself at home or we can grind them for you.

A varying selection of prepacked, origin specific, coffees are also available. Try a new coffee from one of the African or America coffee growing regions.

*_Tea_*
For those who enjoy a steaming cup of tea, The Granary provides a large selection of both loose and bagged teas as well as all the accessories from pots, cups and presses to tea spoons, infusers and honey drippers.

Premium bulk teas are supplied by The Metropolitan Company, world leaders in the tea business. The Metropolitan Tea Company is part of the Ethical Tea Partnership, an organization similar to the Fair Trade organization that regulates the living and working conditions on tea estates. It is a socially and environmentally directed organization providing premium teas from estates around the world.

Bagged teas include a large selection of organic and Fair Trade certified teas in a variety of flavours.

Match Tea and accessories are also sold at The Granary
