Who We Are
Little Victories Coffee is a small, independent specialty coffee roaster based in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada that is owned and operated by two coffee professionals - one roaster and one barista. We are dedicated to elevating the coffee culture in Ottawa and contributing to the bustling Canadian coffee scene.
How Did We Get Here?
When it came time for Andrew to move on, he travelled to Melbourne, Australia where he continued to grow his skills as a barista. While working in Melbourne his skills grew exponentially, and he realised how much of a gap in quality there was between the leader in the coffee industry, and his home city, Ottawa. He contacted Jeremie with an idea, and the two began brainstorming.
What We Do
We ethically source our coffee, using direct trade whenever possible. We believe the standard coffee certifications have become more of a marketing trademark than a benefit to small scale coffee growers. We believe in developing long lasting relationships with farmers and buying outside of the larger coffee import companies whenever possible.
We roast all of our coffees on our 15kg Loring Falcon. Loring Roasters are the cleanest burning, most intelligent and most consistent roasters in the world and we are lucky to be the first in Ottawa to have one. We generally focus on light roasts, and aim to roast coffee which is as complex and beautiful, as it is developed and balanced.
We deliver our wholesale coffee in re-useable branded pails, which allows us to save thousands of foil bags from being sent to landfill every month. Our retail bags are completely compostable after removing the tin-tie, and they are made of 40% recycled kraft paper.
Style and Packaging
Our bags are printed by WeDoPrinting in Cornwall, Ontario on a Heidelberg Windmill Black Ball circa 1950s printing press. The bags are mechanically pressed and have the image debossed into the bag, with crisp, clean and precise lines. Every bag is unique, which connects our packaging to the coffee inside it.
