About Transcend Coffee

Our Approach

Through thick and thin, we have intentionally kept our relationships with the growers. It’s how we’re able to roast with some of the best beans in the world.

For us, Coffee is not a commodity. It is a craft and a ritual. It’s a chase. It’s a pursuit. And taste is our leading light.

We care as much about quality as we care about the economic sustainability for coffee farmers and the industry in general.

Sourcing + Sustainability

Our coffees are grown by some of the most passionate and dedicated farmers. We source most of our coffees ourselves, meeting farmers face-to-face and paying truly sustainable prices which significantly higher than Fair-Trade prices.

Transcend's business model is built on real and mutually beneficial relationships with the people who grow, harvest, process, source and ship green coffee. It is our sincere desire that these relationships will stand the test of time, through both the good years and the bad.

Our green buyer, Josh Hockin, regularly travels to origin — the countries where coffee is grown — to connect with the very best coffee farmers. These passionate, hard working farmers become our partners in the coffee business. We believe that establishing meaningful relationships with coffee producers, and other coffee professionals, gives us access to some of the best coffee in the world, in a truly sustainable way.

We think these practices are reflected in the quality of the coffee we roast and serve and is vital to our integrity as a quality Edmonton third wave coffee roaster.

Roasting

We do everything we can to roast the exceptional coffees we source in a way that honours the hard work of the farmers we partner with. Our approach at the roastery gently coaxes all the complex flavours and nuances out of each unique coffee which reflect in your cup.

To us, coffee roasting is the marriage of consistent science and subtle art. It takes a keen palate, creativity and a lot of hard work and dedication to come up with a roast profile that will highlight the most delicate notes of a particular coffee.
