We're coffee lovers

Coffee is a healthy stimulant that wakes humanity up every morning, ready to do our good work... Coffee is an excuse to get together with friends to ponder life’s decisions, to celebrate or just for no particular reason at all.

Coffee should never be pretentious, but it should be treated with respect. We need to be mindful of where our coffee comes from, how much work has gone into each and every bean. Our coffee purchases can be a powerful force for social change in the world. That's what we believe.

Here at Green Bean, we're building personal relationships with coffee farmers half a world away. And we roast their coffee right here in rural Manitoba.

Enjoy every sip.
