What is Green Bus Coffee?

Green Bus is a small coffee roasting business run by us - Cindy and Felix.

We call it Green Bus because the roaster and related equipment is all located on a big, green, former school bus.

We don't roast full-time because we both have other things to do.  Green Bus is based in Windsor, Ontario, Canada, but our coffee often finds its way to the places we travel to - the Ottawa area, the Toronto area, the Lindsay-Peterborough area, the Winnipeg area, and Island Lake, Manitoba.  The occasional bag of Green Bus coffee has been known to show up in Detroit.

Our coffee is organic and fair-trade, because the health of the planet trumps everything but the laws of physics.  Our coffee is good, our prices are fair, our customers are family and friends, and our business goals are small-scale.

We try to keep it simple.  If you were to step onto our bus, you could see the whole operation in one glance.  There are only two of us; there is no hidden corporation masquerading as your friend.  Unlike the coffee giants, what you see is what you get.

How do you purchase our coffee?  Visit the café - we keep some beans in stock.  If you have a request for a roast that we don't have on hand, just let us know.

A few comments about the words "Fair Trade" and "Organic"

As a coffee lover you will drink hundreds of cups in the next year.  Not all coffees are equal.   Was your coffee roasted last week or last year?   Does it contain pesticide residue?   Were the people who grew, picked and processed it paid a fair price or wage?  Was it roasted by people you can talk to, or was it roasted in a big factory thousands of miles away?   What is in your cup?

Green Bus believes that your coffee should stand for who you are.   Lucky for us all, a fresh, healthy, fair and honest cup of coffee also tastes better.   We can offer you a variety of Fairly Traded, Organic coffees that are roasted here in Windsor, Canada.   Should you want a roast that we don't have on hand, our roasting machine is small enough to allow us to create a batch just for you!

We have a simple operation, and by working out of our home we can keep our prices in the real world.   We believe that freshly roasted, organic, fair-trade coffee should not be a "boutique" experience that can only be enjoyed by those with high incomes.   At Green Bus, we believe a healthy, delicious cup of coffee should be available at a reasonable price.

Packaging

We use a biodegradeable package that preserves your coffee's flavour.   It can be re-used, re-purposed, and when you are done with it you can compost it.   (Note:  we will be offering coffee beans in reusable glass jars on a deposit/exchange basis in the future, but are waiting for Covid-19 related restrictions to be lifted before we do so).

Payment

We accept - and prefer - cash.   Banks will manage just fine without taxing your bag of coffee with a few extra nickels.   In recognition of the digital age, however we accept the usual credit and debit cards.
