Vancouver’s Matchstick Coffee Launches Roasting Operation

Matchstick coffee in VancouverAn upstart Vancouver coffee shop with an artisan approach has begun its own coffee roasting operation to exercise more control over the quality of its drinks.

Matchstick Coffee, co-owned and run by Aaron Braun, Annie Viehweger and Spencer Viehweger, opened in January, offering pour-over filter coffees and espressos. But the company only recently delved into roasting, offering five running varieties of single-origin coffees. Here the group shares its approach:

As specialty roasters and purveyors, it is our responsibility to honour the story of every coffee that enters our doors. We treat each coffee with respect, recognizing the care and attention put into it by everyone who had touched it before us. We want to offer you the best coffee experience imaginable.

This means roasting coffee ourselves in order to best understand and highlight the nuance of every lot. This means establishing deep roots in our community and building life-long friendships with our customers; because for us, business cannot be anything but personal. We look forward to serving you.
