Make your day with Co-operative Coffee

From the first smell of coffee brewing in the morning to the last sip with dessert, we know that a good cup of coffee is an important part of your day. Treat yourself to a premium cup of coffee from Co-op.

Co-operative Coffee is exceptional coffee from around the world, with varieties ranging from light roasts to dark. From beans to brewing, Co-operative Coffee delivers premium beans from sustainable sources to create the perfect cup for you.

“Coffee purchased at a grocery store, gas bar or convenience store doesn’t have to be generic,” said Sav Bellissimo, Store Brands Manager with Federated Co-operatives Limited (FCL). “We want to emulate the coffee house experience and help our customers have a memorable cup of coffee.”

Made in co-operation

Co-op believes in co-operation amongst co-operatives. Our Peruvian organic and fair trade coffees are sourced from the Monte Verde Café Association, a co-operative of about 800 small farms deep in the Amazon, in the Rodriguez de Mendoza province. This co-operative helps farmers improve the quality of the coffee through specialized training on growing and harvesting processes.

“On a seasonal basis, we’ll be procuring beans directly from growers,” Bellissimo said. “Direct trade and fair trade are methods we use to source beans in a sustainable and socially responsible manner.”

In direct trade, Co-op works directly with small farmers through our roaster to establish coffee bean quality and price, which benefits the grower. The direct trade beans are available in-store at different times throughout the year from different co-operative growers and regions, depending on the growing season. Keep an eye on your grocery store shelves for these must-try beans.

Your new favourite

Our master roaster is also one of 3,500 ‘Q graders’ in the world. Certified by the Coffee Quality Institute, our roaster selects the best quality beans, looking for factors such as acidity, body, flavour and balance, and roasts them to perfection in small batches. Co-operative Coffee blends have won Golden Bean awards – and you can try them yourself.

There’s a variety for every coffee lover. The Co-operative Coffee flavour line-up includes:

  • Breakfast Blend: Lightly roasted with low acidity and notes of caramel.
  • Colombia Blend: Caramel and apricot aromas, rich wine-like flavour with moderate acidity. It's also available in decaf. This blend is a two-time Golden Bean Award winner!
  • French Roast: Heavy-bodied and bold in flavour, with smoky aroma and rich taste. It's also available in decaf.
  • Espresso Blend: Fine Arabica coffees with balanced sweet flavour and ultra-smooth finish.
  • Ethiopia: Fragrant notes of citrus and fresh fruit using Yirgacheffe and natural Sidamo beans.
  • Costa Rica: Roasted malt and smoky aromas with notes of dark chocolate and nuts.
  • Peru: Smoky aroma with dark chocolate and crisp sweetness using fair trade and organic beans.
  • Honduras (Limited edition direct trade): Bright grapefruit and plum notes complemented by jasmine and honey undertones.

“With Co-operative Coffee, we’re pushing the envelope, trying new things and reinventing ourselves,” Bellissimo said. “I love coffee and have tried every one of our new products. I enjoy them all and hope our customers find their new favourite.”
