WestCoast Coffee Traders
Importers of specialty green coffee from around the globe, we are a leader in Western Canada with strong and extensive knowledge in the specialty coffee industry. We are committed to sourcing the highest quality green coffee and to providing outstanding customer service.
WestCoast Coffee Traders is a family owned and operated specialty coffee business in Western Canada. We started small, sourcing and importing one coffee container directly from source. Today, with over 30 years of experience, we import numerous containers of specialty coffee lots from around the globe and strive to find the world’s most sought after green coffee beans.
Our extensive years of experience, personal relationships with the producers, regular visits to coffee growing regions, and our overall commitment to responsible, ethical coffee have established WestCoast Coffee Traders in the specialty coffee industry. We are consistently able to secure, import and distribute high quality beans to our customers.
We value our customers and always provide personal, professional service. Our clients are able to pick up the phone and speak with us about current coffee related events, forecast crop productions and market trends. Working together with our customers, we properly secure coffee that is right for both their business and to pass on to their customers. Formerly known as Sunshine Coast Coffee Traders, we are located just outside Vancouver B.C. with most of our coffee warehoused in Coquitlam, B.C. Canada.
We have a strong belief that coffee should have a positive impact from farm to cup. Working closely with farms, mills, and co-ops, we ensure that everyone benefits equally from our exports. As a priority, we pay a premium to source ethical coffee that benefits not just us or our clients, but also the farmers, their employees and their surrounding communities. Some projects that we have had the pleasure of being a part of, include;
A medical clinic for the farm workers and their families, providing proper health care with numerous professionals brought to the site throughout the year. We have also helped construct a school at origin, and currently fund a scholarship program that enables children to stay in school and gain a greater education to help themselves, their families and the community. Furthermore, coffee proceeds have helped build proper water treatment systems that help irrigate the farms and also provide fresh water to the surrounding community, something that the residents would not otherwise have available to them.
These are just some of the projects we have worked on and continue to support. If you would like to learn more about our social programs or contribute to the efforts please contact us and we would be happy to provide you with information. However, if you are an existing client, you have already helped in our efforts and we thank you for your continued support.

The loose teas are of excellent quality and sold in bulk format. 1kg and 3kg bags are available, printed with a description of the contents, origin of the tea and brewing instructions. We also carry a retail tea format that has shown to increase sales. Our pyramid shaped tea bags are 100% biodegradable and are the closest you will get to loose tea within a bag. The bags do not emit any toxins and the pyramid shaped tea bags give plenty of room for our whole leaf tea to expand extracting the utmost taste and aroma.
