Reunion Coffee Roasters
Reunion Coffee Roasters is one of the oldest roasters in the game.
Founded by Peter Pesce in 1995, former chairman of the Coffee Association of Canada and “reputedly the best cupper in Canada,” they’re on a mission to provide sustainable coffee, from seed to cup.
To bring you exceptional coffees from origin, Reunion’s developed the Small Lot Series – a curated, monthly collection that offers the best of what specialty coffee should be: nuanced, complex, singular, yet still approachable.
They opened their flagship retail cafe in Toronto’s Roncesvalles Village in 2015. That same year, they were named Roast Magazine’s Macro Roaster of the Year and in 2018, the company was recognized as one of Canada’s Greenest Employers.
In their commitment for ethically produced coffee, Reunion, alongside other roasters, holds roadside auctions in the highlands of Papua New Guinea for the crops of small family farms that have traditionally been underpaid by middlemen.
In Colombia’s South Tolima region, they support projects like school renovations, computer labs and improved agricultural infrastructure.
