Mugging Whales Coffee Company
Mugging Whales micro-roasters based in Winnipeg, Manitoba got their unique name in the same place that inspired them to start their business. While on vacation in Maui, owners Heather and Jim went on a whale watching tour where they experienced a “whale mugging” (the boat is not allowed to turn on the engine unless the whales are 100 yards away). Each of their coffees is named after the place it was grown and is roasted in a small batch each week to ensure you get the freshest beans possible!
Grosche based in Cambridge, Ontario is a family-run business with a mission to provide safe drinking water for those in need.
