About Us

Our Pod Journey

 

Since 2006 we’ve been roasting, packaging and selling premium coffees as Spirit Bear Coffee Company, an Indigenous owned and operated company. When we saw the growing popularity of single-serve coffee coffee pods we were concerned about the amount of garbage it generates. (Over 10 billion single-serve capsules will be purchased this year.) That’s why we decided to wait until compostable pods, a better developed product for consumers and the Mother Earth. We set out to joint venture with those with similar ideals and create the most sustainable single-serve coffee available, without sacrificing taste or our environment.  2018 we launched our 100% compostable coffee pod. 


The journey’s not over. We’re working hard to ensure compostable plastics (our pod and other items like cutlery, take-out containers and even those green bag liners) are accepted in your municipal green bins.

Drum Circle Sustainability

Behind our Spirit Bear logo you will see a drum.

Since ancient times the drum has been used as a form of communication to bring awareness and communicate.


With the development of the coffee pods, in our work and our lives, we seek to honour a commitment to Drum Circle Sustainability, blending: Quality, Ecology, Equity & Community.

A circle represents balance, where each element is interconnected, interdependent and essential to realize our vision. Everything we do comes back to us with lasting effects on ourselves and future generations, this has also been referred to as “full circle or circle of life”.

A Great Coffee Cup After Cup

A good cup of coffee with the coffee pods may seem deceptively simple. But a lot of hard work goes into making it a reality. It comes down to choosing exactly the right beans, then carefully roasting and blending them. We only use 100% Arabica, high-grown coffee beans. Each shipment of green beans is different, which means they have to be individually tested and judged for aroma, flavour and mouth-feel. This is a process called “cupping,” which is performed by the Roast Master. He’s one of only a select group of active licensed Q-graders (an industry designation) in Canada. He oversees the roasting of every batch to ensure every cup of Spirit Bear Coffee delivers superb flavour you expect. We’re passionate about coffee and we won’t settle for anything less than the very best.
