Baskit Brand Spotlight: Balzac's Coffee Roasters

Baskit Brand Spotlight: Balzac's Coffee Roasters

2016 Nov 10th

All Balzac’s Coffee Roasters needed was Diana Olsen’s passion for coffee, inspiration from the French Novelist Monsieur Balzac, and time in Paris to immerse herself into their café culture. The president and founder of Balzac’s, Diana launched her first coffee stand in Toronto after learning the craft of coffee roasting and bean selection in San Francisco. She then opened her first café in Stratford, Ontario. This small coffee cart has now grown across southern Ontario, serving the perfect cups of caffeine for all you coffee aficionados out there. On top of that, on CBC’s Dragons’ Den, Diana ventured in and won over two Dragons with her pitch.

Balzac’s offers Fair Trade Organic coffee with all organic and locally sourced ingredients. Balzac’s Coffee Roasters serves truly artisanal, sustainable, local, and natural beverages and food for everyone to enjoy.

Using the finest selection of high grown Arabica beans, their coffee beans are roasted in small batches with the eco-friendly Loring Smart Roaster. Savour this brew that is deep, dark, and packed with flavour!

Now partnered with Canadian author, Margaret Atwood, Balzac’s Coffee Roasters has a Smithsonian Institute certified Bird Friendly, ‘Atwood’ blend, in order to help raise funds and awareness for Canada’s Pelee Island Bird Observatory.
