Calgary Heritage Roasting Company is built by the wilderness that drives it. We meticulously marry fresh and bold Roasted Coffee with the urge to explore. The company found its inspiration over a percolated cup of coffee on a backpacking trip one morning in the rolling hills of Alberta, Canada. Our methods and values were forged from our experiences as wildland firefighters. Since then, the company's foundation continues to grow and evolve during backyard BBQs, weekend mountain adventures, cold ones with friends and late nights under star-filled skies.
Like our beans, the love grew naturally. Through experimentation and time we learned more about the art of coffee roasting. We knew we had something special. CHRC is the home-grown, outback, rugged, mountain-fresh, clear skies sort of thing that Alberta is all about.
It's here our story truly begins. Calgary Heritage Roasting Company believes in active collaboration, giving back to our environment with our 1 Million Planted initiative, and getting back to nature. It’s about time your coffee tasted as wild as you are!
Our Vision: To become Canada's most influential outdoor lifestyle brand.
Our Mission: To inspire a thirst for authentic collaboration, fostering a passionate community, while actively encouraging customer involvement in conservation and stewardship of the outdoors.
HELPING KEEP OUR WILD PLACES A LITTLE WILDER
CHRC is giving back to the natural wilderness that ignited our passion for this journey. In 2019 Calgary Heritage Roasting Company partnered with Summit Reforestation and the Blue Green Planet Project out of British Columbia in order to make a lasting impact on our planet and native lands. We have committed to plant one tree on Canadian soil for every 340g bag of coffee sold. We currently plant our trees in BC or Alberta dependent on land availability.
Your purchase is directly giving back to our amazing forests and ecosystems.
To date our customers helped CHRC plant 71,000 trees within BC and Alberta! In 2021 we further planted 500 Willows along the Southern Albertan Castle riverbanks preventing riverbank degradation in association with the Oldman Watershed Council.
