Caffe Beano believes in supporting local, organic and fairly traded ingredients whenever possible in order to support the communities in which it operates. The coffee beans, all from Fratello Coffee Roasters in Calgary, are certified Organic, Fair Trade, or Rainforest Alliance.

Caffe Beano partners with businesses all over Calgary for ingredients and baked goods. Its tomatoes and cucumbers come from Broxburn Farms, its pastries come from Pascal’s Pastries, ice cream bars from Made by Marcus, fruit popsicles from Top Pop, and grass-fed organic beef from Sunworks Farms

Deeply environmentally conscious, Caffe Beano recycles all plastic, paper and cardboard, composts all coffee grounds and food scraps, and the to-go cups and lids are as environmentally-friendly as possible.

Besides good coffee, Caffe Beano is passionate about the arts. Sponsoring ATP Theatre Projects, Spokenword Calgary and Sled Island Film Festival, and supporting local poets and novelists by selling their self-published work out of the cafe.
