Laughing whale coffee co.
The story of Laughing Whale Coffee dates back to when Steve, our roaster, was travelling around Europe during his university years. He fell in love with the artisanally roasted and brewed espresso that he encountered in every small town café. Returning to his then home of Washington state, he wanted to learn everything he could about coffee. When the first Starbucks opened just around the corner from his Seattle apartment, he found himself in a frontrow seat for the renaissance of the small, independent coffee roasting movement.Today, Steve and his partner, Deborah, operate Laughing Whale Coffee Roasters in the UNESCO heritage village of Lunenburg Nova Scotia. This community of shipbuilders, artists, fishermen and tradespeople have a legacy of pride in detailed craftsmanship and community values. All this dovetails well with Laughing Whale's passion for providing small-batch, carefully roasted and artfully blended coffees (all certified Fair Trade and organic - of course!) to customers near and far. The combination of the finest of traditional practices with the latest in roasting technology provides the platform to create truly exceptional coffee.

It all began with generations of family meals where farm-fresh, wholesome pork would always make its way to the table. Long, hard days working Ontario fields gave our farmers pride in the land, and in the hogs they raised. Our founders knew that if they worked together, they could share the pork that their families loved with the rest of the world. That dream to share our premium pork continues to inspire us. We care about every part of the process, from the grains we grow to feed our hogs, to the quality of the meat we serve. Every farm is family-owned and operated and has been producing pork for decades. Today we bring the same care we’ve always had to everything we do. We came together, not only as a group of proud farmers but as a family.
