Devil’s Head Coffee – named for a mountain in the Ghost River Valley, a popular spot for climbers -- was founded in 2017 after friends goaded founder Chris into taking his garage-based roasting hobby on full-time, with wife Tanis joining the team shortly thereafter.

Devil’s Head Coffee works closely with several Q-Graders -- the coffee equivalent to a sommelier -- all based in western Canada who travel the world to find the best single-origin coffee beans from family-run farms and co-operatives to work directly with. Currently, Devil’s Head Coffee sources from Ethiopia, Peru, Guatemala, Flores Island, and Rwanda.

Chris places significant value on quality – even going so far as to refuse to sell product he doesn’t feel came out 100% perfect – education, and community. The roastery shares a warehouse front with urban farmers YYC Growers and Distributors, and provides all of its used coffee grounds and burlap bags to them for compost. Devil’s Head Coffee also donates a portion of revenue to local charities from every event to which they bring their mobile coffee cart.
