How Coffee beans are made

 

Coffee Fruit

Just like great novelists have a process, so do the beans we put into every bottle of TWO BEARS coffee. Before the high-quality beans make their way into our drinks, they go through a lengthy process of transformation. Starting off as a tiny seedlings, it takes 5 years before a coffee plant matures. Once fully developed the small trees sprout the cherries that contain the beans. The fruit from the plant then takes around 9 months to ripen. Once matured, the harvesting begins!

The Cold Brewing Process

Two Bears starts with premium direct trade beans from a local Toronto craft roaster. Our coffee is then ground and steeped in cold water for 16 hours, filtered and bottled. This cold extraction process results in a rich, smooth coffee concentrate with a natural subtle sweetness. No sugar added or needed, unless you want too!

Our bean to bottCoffee from Columbiale model

Our commitment to quality rests upon a promise to ethically source our green beans while ensuring each batch is of the highest quality. Every year, owners David and Moustafa travel to Columbia to visit farms directly. They meet with the farmers that produce the coffee bean in the region of Huila. This ensures that Two Bears can trace their coffee from the bottle back to the farm. From farm to bottle, they assure that they deliver a high quality and socially sourced product for everyone to enjoy. Our brew is bottled and sent out to local businesses and markets around Canada. We are proud to have a bean to bottle model, which promotes fair wages to farmers and local quality production.
