Moccasin Joe Coffee Roasters is also making packaging more environmentally friendly say owners.

Julie Anne David, along with her brother Mike are taking over the family business and adding their own touches.

Moccasin Joe Coffee Roasters is located in Kanesatake, a Mohawk community west of Montreal.

It just launched a new line of coffee that is 100 per cent sourced from Indigenous-owned farms.

“Our first coffee partner for our new Indigenous to Indigenous coffee alliance line will be from Guatemala,” says Mike. “Actually, we are hosting the farmer today at our new roastery so it is pretty exciting.”

The company was started 17 years ago by their father Walter.

“I am taking over roasting,” says Julie. “It’s going on a year soon. I have been learning the ropes from my father and trying to learn everything about the entire roasting process right to the packaging. Next, it will be learning how to source the coffee.”
