Minimum order $250 for wholesale pricing

Volume Discounts

For wholesale customers who wish to increase their margin and reduce their costs, we offer a volume discount of 10% on orders over $1000 in value (before shipping and taxes)

This discount applies to your entire order (excluding shipping and taxes), with some exceptions. The following exceptions are in place because of tight margins, reducing our ability to offer larger discounts.

We strive to keep our prices as low as possible, and on a few of products it is impossible to offer further discounts on the wholesale price. Rather than increasing the wholesale price for our smaller customers, we prefer to keep pricing accessible to everyone. In essence, the wholesale price is equivalent to a 10% discount, but is available to everyone. We have reduced the prices on some wholesale products to reflect this.

Exceptions to volume discounts:

Electric Brewers
Electric Grinders
Nut Milk Makers
Parts and replacements
DF Grinders
Fellow Ode
Frank de Paula
Getchu Some Gear Canada
Pacific Foods
Peak Water
VAC Coffee
VARIA VS3 Grinders
Weber Workshops

Once your order reaches $1000 you will see what your discount is on each item at checkout. If no discount is listed, it means it is excluded from volume discounts.

Effective February 1, 2024, our 15% discount tier was discontinued and free shipping extended. Please click here for more information.

An Expert's Guide to Preparing Espresso, Coffee, and Tea.

From Scott Rao: "When I began in the coffee business in 1993, I had read every book I could find about coffee.  After reading all of those books, however, I felt as if I hadn't learned much about how to make great coffee.  My coffee library was chock-full of colourful descriptions of brewing styles, growing regions, and recipes, with a few almost-unreadable scientific books mixed in.  I would have traded in all of those books for one serious, practical book with relevant instruction about making great coffee in a café.  After being in the coffee business for 15 years, I decided someone needed to write that book, so I wrote The Professional Barista’s Handbook."

Helps you get the basics straight !

Jordan J. (Morden, CA)
Enjoying it so far!

I haven’t finished the book yet, but I’m really enjoying it so far. I like the scientific approach Scott takes while writing, I feel like I have a much better understanding of why everything is happening. I don’t even brew espresso at home, but I’m still loving this book as its a great read for anyone interested in the coffee world and is interested in the science behind brewing great espresso (and coffee in general)

Go-To Resource

An extremely well laid out and thorough reference book that's also interesting to read and beautiful to look at.

Charles Tsang (Calgary, CA)
Amazing Read

Since COVID has happened, I wanted to take the extra spare time to learn more about the art of making coffee and learn what it takes to become a professional barista. I'm happy I purchased this book because it's straight to the point and easy to follow, many of the topics are detailed enough to understand the technical aspects and even come with diagrams or pictures on the analytics and methods to the various techniques of brewing coffee.
