Our story begins..
Smoking Gun coffee was created out of a passion and interest in coffee, and has grown into something completely unexpected. SG endeavors to tell the story of coffee from around the world, roasting in a style to allow the coffee to express itself through its individual flavor profile and differentiate itself from other beans and origins. Small batch roasting allows SG to ensure high quality, optimal freshness and frequent rotation and release to expand and develop the experience of consumers. SG is passionate about developing community, collaboration and great coffee. Join us on Instagram and Facebook and be a part of the story.
Our story continues...
Our roastery is co-located with our friends, Ravens Brewing Company in Abbotsford, BC. We also launched our first café out of their tasting room in April 2020 and enjoyed hustling coffee out of there until our move to Highstreet Mall for a café pop-up March 12-July 31, 2021. We are SUPER excited to launch our new café/roastery in Chilliwack at District 1881 in Sept 20201. Follow us on Instagram to see what's going on! @smokingguncoffee.

SG sources traceable coffee’s from small farmers, and utilizes direct trade relationships between farmers and suppliers used. This ensures that farming practices and ethics are observed, coffee pricing is fair and cooperative and investment into the development of small farms is made. If you have questions regarding sourcing, please contact us for more info.
We work with small-hold farmers with a focus on fair and equitable trade, community development, and sustainability in the trade relationships from farm to cup.
Regular, small-batch roasting to develop accentuate intrinsic flavors and profiles - we want to help tell the story of coffees from around the world and highlight what makes them special.
Environmental stewardship and sustainability are at the core of our decision making in all decisions. We hope to continue developing earth positivity and to reduce our negative impacts on the earth where we live, work, and play.
