Welcome to the world of Atlin Mountain coffee roasters, where since 2013, we have been satisfying coffee lovers' cravings for exceptional coffee. Our small-batch roasting process harnesses the power of the sun and the heat of wood fire, resulting in a taste that's unique and full of character.
We believe that coffee is more than just a drink, it's an experience that brings people together. Whether you're exploring the great outdoors, at work, in the office, relaxing at home, or catching up with friends over a freshly brewed cup, we know that our coffee will be the perfect companion to elevate any occasion.
Our passion for bringing people together over great coffee is at the heart of everything we do, that's why we never compromise on quality. We use only the finest specialty grade, certified organic coffee beans, carefully selected and wood fire roasted to perfection in our solar powered roastery. The result is coffee that is as full of character as the Canadian wilderness, and a taste that's impossible to forget.
As a family-operated business, we take great pride in supporting local communities. From sponsoring local events to giving back through charitable efforts, to using local suppliers as much as we can, we know that our success is closely tied to the health and well being of the place we call home.
Whether you're looking for a morning boost, a midday pick me up or an afternoon treat, Atlin Mountain Coffee Roasters has the perfect flavor profile to suit your unique tastes.
Our renewably powered coffee roaster:
As the fire crackles in our custom-built “Ferrari red” coffee roaster, its brick and cast iron materials absorb the wood’s heat and release it slowly, producing an even and consistent roast. Thanks to a double roasting drum, beans are shielded from woodsmoke during this process.
The result is coffee with a rich, velvety palette, more rounded and slightly sweeter than beans roasted by other methods. One sip of wood fire roasted coffee and you’ll never want anything else.
Our roastery, our personalities:
Roasting coffee using wood fire and solar power fire reflects us, our passion for excellent coffee, and our love for the outdoors. It's as much a traditional way of roasting coffee as it is a modern way of coffee roasting. From traditionally roasting with a hand crank over the fire, or a pan in the fire to now modern days. Our setup includes a 2.8k solar array for power, and a custom build brick and cast iron coffee roaster, with all the controls one could ask for in a modern-day coffee roaster, that enables us to provide you with consistent quality, and that offers the highest level of roast control for Philippe, who does the roasting in our roastery.
A variety of roasts and origins:
We believe in giving you the unique opportunity to experience the distinctive tastes of each coffee region. For this reason, we choose to roast and offer single-origin coffees and blends from a variety of regions and countries across the world.
Our light, medium, and dark roasts are individually cupped to ensure the finest quality. Even beans from the same country, in the same lot, taste different depending on how they are roasted. We love exploring the full range of flavours contained in every bean.
