Common Grounds Coffee

Common Grounds Coffee is a not-for-profit coffee company with the intention of using coffee as a means to bring light to the issue of human trafficking, both in Canada and worldwide. We believe that coffee can be a tangible platform to start the discussion with people who are unaware of the problem, and can also be an easy first step to mobilize individuals to become involved.⁠ We partner with organizations working in anti-trafficking to share their message, and donate 50% of our net profits from all retail and wholesale sales to these partners to support their work.⁠

Core Values

Our core values are what drive us forward, give us energy, and guide us in our mission.

Coffee With Purpose

Did you know 40 million people are trapped in modern day slavery globally? Did you know human trafficking is one of the fastest growing crimes in Canada? Did you know 72% of reported human trafficking victims in Canada are under the age of 25?⁠

Your morning brew can be more than a delicious way to start the day — it can be a vote to break the cycle of human trafficking and abuse in your city, country, and the world. 50% of the net profits of our small batch, ethically sourced, and locally roasted coffee are donated to support local and global charities doing this invaluable work.

Ethical & Sustainable Suppliers

Imagine tasting an amazing cup of specialty coffee and smelling its wonderful aroma knowing that you are making a difference on the other side of the world. As you take a sip a smile crosses your face as you picture the farmers and their communities being able to build their new school or receive clean water.

Common Grounds Coffee believes in building meaningful relationships with coffee suppliers who wish to live in a world where the coffee they produce represents more than coffee, but a direct method to improve the community’s livelihood, and to make the world a better place.⁠

Providing Premium Quality

Common Grounds Coffee roasts our beans in small batches to ensure freshness and quality. Each coffee sourced is analyzed and sampled by our Q-Grader and the roast is customized to ensure the coffee has the unique flavor of the land it was grown in. The coffee you enjoy is traced every step of the way, from tree to cup!

Sourcing from Southeast Asia

Common Grounds Coffee sources our green beans from the developing coffee regions of Southeast Asia.  We have selected organizations and cooperatives that align with our goals and seek to support the local communities. We are very excited to showcase the unique, sustainable and natural coffee that is grown in this region.
