Named for the majestic bird found in Salt Spring Island's Blue Heron Rookery, this medium-dark blend is unassuming one minute and bold the next  just like its namesake. You can have it all with this organic and fair trade blend. Our Blue Heron blend is both sweet and savoury, bold and bright. Look for milk chocolate tasting notes with hints of tangerine and nuts before sinking into a delightfully roasty finish. Tasting Notes: milk chocolate, nutty, citrus.

Salt Spring Coffee Co. Salt Spring Coffee Co.
Richmond, BC
Many people consider it relaxing to sit back and enjoy a hot cup of coffee, but when you think about where coffee comes from, it is anything but relaxing. Small scale coffee farmers with just a few acres must tend thousands of bushes to earn as little as $5 US per day because one coffee bush produces only one pound of coffee each year. Farmers are at the end of a long supply chain, so typically they only get a small fraction of the retail price of their coffee.

Certified Fair Trade
Salt Spring Coffee is one of the few responsible BC coffee retailers that has addressed this issue head-on by choosing to buy coffees that are fair trade (certified by Fair For Life). This guarantees that the coffee producers get a fairer price for their coffee and it also ensures decent conditions for workers. This is especially important for the thousands of children who are forced to work 12 or more hours a day on coffee plantations.

Certified Organic
Salt Spring Coffee also cares about the environment. They sell a full line of certified organic and shade tree grown coffees. Shade tree grown coffee is grown within forests, instead of in an open plantation. This signals a return to traditional growing practices and in the process it preserves habitat for birds, sustains rainforests, eliminates the need for herbicides and pesticides and in the end produces a better tasting cup of coffee. Also, coffee growers much prefer working in the shade than the hot tropical sun!

Delicious Coffee
For these reasons, and because their coffee is absolutely delicious, we at SPUD proudly support Salt Spring Coffee. If you drink coffee, give it a try. You'll be hard pressed to find a coffee elsewhere that not only tastes good, but makes you feel good as well!
