The first Good Earth Coffeehouse opened in Calgary on a hot summer day in 1991. Our Founders, Nan Eskenazi and Michael Going, began with a desire to serve exceptional coffee and wholesome food, with a down-to-earth attitude. Nan hailed from the Pacific Northwest - a coffee mecca of sorts – thus she was in charge of creating the coffee part of Good Earth. Michael grew up on ranches in Southern Alberta and so he had a taste for real, good food and had the recipes too! Between the two of them they got Good Earth off to a good start. Since then many other folks have become a part of Good Earth. And they all brought great ideas, experiences, and recipes with them.
It all starts with the hard work of our coffee farmers. The good grows with their commitment to social and environmental initiatives in their coffee-growing communities. It flourishes with our Direct Trade relationships, supporting communities where our coffee is grown. When our coffee is carefully roasted – slowly in small batches – it brings out the best in every bean.
And your smile when you take your first sip? Well, that’s good too.
