True Local Spotlight: Oso Negro

Coffee is a connector for people and the natural world, sparking conversations + creating community along the way. From the growers in Guatemala, to the roasters and baristas here in Nelson – this simple quest for freshness and collaboration is at the heart of Oso Negro’s success.

We had the joy of connecting with founder Jon Meyer at the historic Oso Roasting facility in uphill Nelson and came back gushing about his humility and passion for coffee. The beans travel far before landing in Nelson, as do the droves of patrons that lineup for their first sips of the day.
