How long have you been in business?
What motivated you to start?
We wanted to create a Coffee Alternative that was gluten free and didn’t taste watery. We believe taste matters! After being uninspired by coffee alternatives that taste like barley water, Raven Roast was formulated using high quality ingredients and herbal wisdom.
Brendan is trained as a herbalist and a Registered Acupuncturist. We wanted to create a coffee alternative that naturally promotes energy, stamina, and wellness. Both varieties use herbs that have a long history in European, South American, Aryvedic and Chinese Medicine traditions.
What are some of your greatest joys?
Raising our young family here in the West Kootenays. We love living in this beautiful rural area and being involved in the health and well-being of our community.
If you could deliver a message directly to Co-op members/customers, what would it be?
Raven Roast is a great way to get the rich bold flavor of coffee when you’re trying to reduce or eliminate it from your diet. If you’re craving a strong dark roast or a creamy latte but want to avoid the jitters and the afternoon crash, then Raven Roast is the perfect coffee alternative.
