Eight Ounce Coffee
Eight Ounce Coffee scours the world to find the finest quality specialty coffee equipment to import and distribute to the best cafés and lifestyle retailers in North America. We bring the most up-to-the-minute products in this niche industry together, and offer a single point of purchase for top level coffee brewing and espresso equipment.
Our goal was always to bring these hard-to-find products to Canadians - but we’ve exceeded our reach, and are now spilling over into the US market, where they are also eager for access to a well curated catalogue of specialty coffee equipment.
What started out as a side project to stay busy while on maternity leave in 2011, has now become a globally recognized force in the specialty coffee industry, employing eleven people full time, turning over four million dollars revenue a year, occupying an 8,500 sqft warehouse in Calgary, and being recognized as a key supporter of the emerging specialty coffee industry in Alberta and Canada.
