Right from the beginning we wanted to serve the best coffee in Ottawa. That is why
we chose to work with Illy, which is associated with exceptional restaurants, cafés,
and airlines around the world.
In addition to being a trail blazer when it comes to fair trade, Illy has been producing
exceptional coffee since it started in 1933 in Trieste, Italy. Check
out its website to learn more about Illy’s other commitments, including modern art
For the same reasons, we serve and sell teas from Dammann Brothers, which introduced
teas to France in 1692. It was also the first company to market naturally aromatic
teas and more recently introduced tea bags made from crystal!
To accompany exceptional coffees and teas we sell European chocolate from Cluziel
as well as local chocolate from Olivia, both exceptional, and Moss jams from Stratford.
