This coffee month, let’s support our local coffee shops and brands. There are a lot of great, independent and local coffee shops here in Toronto alone. Keep reading to find our more about them!
Propeller Coffee is a hip and stylish coffee shop tucked away in Toronto’s Junction District. This B Corp-certified coffee shop is especially known for its reputation for serving high-quality coffee, making it a favorite by coffee lovers across Toronto. What’s more is that they source their coffee beans sustainably, and they have a meticulous selection and inspection process.

Ottawa-based fashion blogger Chantal Sarkisian virtually opened Wax + Wane Coffee in November 2020. The coffee shop offers selections of Fairtrade coffee beans, and delivers small batches of freshly roasted coffee right at your doorstep.
What we absolutely love about this coffee brand’s philosophy is that it encourages its community to take a pause and celebrate the tiny moments in everyday life. Its tagline “Have you paused for your moment of magic today?” certainly reminds us to take a sip and relax.
Pilot Coffee Roasters
Pilot Coffee Roasters has multiple locations across Toronto, offering full-service roastery and cold brewery. They also offer a great lineup of specialty coffee you can buy individually or packaged in a subscription service. What’s great about their subscription service is that you can choose either a prepaid subscription or a pay-as-you-go subscription.
Sam James Coffee Bar
Sam James Coffee Bar is a small coffee shop company, focusing on roasting and serving coffee rather than sourcing them. They only source coffee beans that are in season and roast them to highlight their natural sweetness. What we love about this coffee brand is that it knows where its strength lies, and they focus on that to produce great products.
The Roasters Pack

What we love about The Roasters Pack is that it showcases local independent roasters from Canada. Their coffee subscription service is also very unique, as they patterned it to a monthly magazine subscription. They not only provide coffee, but they also include information about the coffee you’ve purchased, sourcing information, brew guides, and other interesting facets of the coffee. Joining and canceling their monthly subscription is also easy and hassle-free!

Balzac’s Coffee offers a very convenient subscription service through their app. You can easily choose the frequency of your orders and whether you want your beans whole or ground, and mix and match your coffee selection. They also offer organic, fairtrade, and bird-friendly beans.

Beginning as an iced coffee delivery service in 2012, Dispatch Coffee has always been a champion for transparency and sustainability for the coffee industry. It has supported, partnered with, and featured a number of independent and family-owned coffee farms.
What we love about this coffee brand is not only its values, but also how easy it is to schedule and customize your subscription. It also delivers your order to your doorstep straight from the coffee farm. Very convenient and time-saving!
