Coffee connoisseurs do not just reside in cities. We’ve known this since 1991 when Mountain Blends first opened. Back then Canmore was a very different place, but the desire for fresh roasted coffee in the Bow Valley remains as strong today as it did back then. Our roasterie quickly morphed into a community hub and so it remains today with dedicated customers of 29 years popping by to grab a much needed quality cup of java or bag of beans.
Here in Canmore we roast (small batch) an array of origin coffees and blends to allow our customers the full spectrum of the gourmet coffee experience. Over the years we’ve refined our vision and enhanced our commitment to the environment. All our coffees are Rainforest Alliance, Fair Trade, Organic and Bird Friendly certified green beans. These certifications help ensure the farmers growing our coffees are compensated fairly, that profits from their harvests are reinvested in their own communities and the natural environment where the beans are grown is preserved. Community is our jam, whether it’s ours or our suppliers.
We are committed to reducing our impact on the environment by donating all our used coffee grounds, chaff and burlap sacks to our community garden. As well as allowing customers to reuse bags or bring in coffee containers.
At Mountain Blends Coffee Roaster's we are proud to be a contributing member of our community. Every year we work with the schools, the legion, sports clubs, daycares and festivals in our area. Today we continue to be an active member in our community providing environmentally friendly premium blends.
To us Mountain Blends Coffee Roaster's means coffee and community! A place for people with a love of fresh, sustainable coffees, small batch roasted with love, to feel a part of our families just through coming in every week to get their coffee. We share our lives with each other, the high and the lows.
Our customers come into our shop not only to buy a bag or cup of coffee but to support a local business and to catch up on everything coffee and our everyday lives. We share laughs and tears with everyone of our customers and it keeps us happy and healthy and loving what we do for a “job”.
