At Stone City Coffee Roasters, we are a family team roasting coffee with the help of our two boys.
We grew up in southeastern Manitoba, where we were taught the value of hard work, honesty, and integrity. We are blessed to be raising our boys in the southeast as well.
Our love for quality-tasting coffee has evolved over the years as we enjoyed specialty coffee shops and craft roasting shops. We love to travel with our boys and try out little coffee shops everywhere we go.
One of our most memorable experiences was a road trip to California when we brought back many pounds of craft coffee that our family roasted for us while we were there. We became passionate about freshly roasted coffee on that trip. As we drove home along the pacific coast, we had the fragrance of the beans, the fresh ocean breeze, and the joy of family surrounding us.
When we got home we would serve their coffee to our friends, we would always hear, the best coffee we have ever had! And we began to dream.
What started as a dream turned into reality in 2019 when the planning began for us to start roasting specialty coffee. We received our final inspection on March 9th, 2020 and had no idea 10 days later the whole world would shut down. No daycare, no school and we had to pivot. We began offering free home deliveries and our oldest son earned 10 cents per delivery. We pivoted, we didn’t give up. By Jan 2021 both my husband and I had quit our jobs of 20+ years of service and were full-time roasting coffee.
Our hand-crafted, small-batch approach is what makes our relationship with our coffee unique. Our method ensures the beans are roasted to perfection, which inevitably results in an exquisitely smooth cup of coffee, bursting with flavor, every time. Our purpose is to create belonging within the community- through coffee. Why coffee? A really good cup of coffee is often shared and it brings people together. And when it’s not it’s a moment to reflect, to think about the world and our role in it. We want you to feel seen, heard and valued. To feel welcome and accepted. To belong. We are passionate about people and awesome coffee!
Thanks for coming along this journey with us!
