Calgary Heritage Roasting Company
|Address||2020 11 St SE, Calgary, AB T2G 3G3
Calgary Heritage Roasting Company is built by the wilderness that drives it. We meticulously marry fresh and bold coffee with the urge to explore. The company found its inspiration over a percolated cup of coffee on a backpacking trip one morning in the rolling hills of Alberta, Canada. Our methods and values were forged from our experiences as wildland firefighters. Since then, the company’s foundation continues to grow and evolve during backyard BBQs, weekend mountain adventures, cold ones with friends and late nights under star-filled skies.
Like our beans, the love grew naturally. Through experimentation and time we learned more about the art of coffee roasting. We knew we had something special. CHRC is the home-grown, outback, rugged, mountain-fresh, clear skies sort of thing that Alberta is all about. It’s here our story truly begins. Calgary Heritage Roasting Company believes in active collaboration, giving back to our environment and community, and getting back to nature. It’s about time your coffee tasted as wild as you are.

IT TAKES A VILLAGE
Some of the best things happen over beer. Ideas are born, friendships forged, deals struck, communities built. That’s how Village Brewery began, friends sharing beers and dreams. Around the table, we had close to a century and a half of brewing experience. One of us was a legendary Canadian brewmaster. Naturally the talk turned to the art and craft of better beer, then to secret sources of malts and hops. By last call we had dreamed up a true community brewery. A brewery that would support Calgary’s artists and craftspeople. A brewery that would create the excellent ales and lagers our friends and neighbors deserve. That talk over beer started the brewery that handcrafted the fine brew you hold in your hand. Please join our table, lift a pint and salute the Village of Calgary. It takes a Village to raise a beer. And a beer to raise a Village.

In September 2015 Emily met her side-kick, wild tea kombucha’s other co-founder and accomplished health inspector Brigette Freel. Today the dynamic duo combine their enthusiasm and expertise in their Calgary, Alberta small-batch brewery to create delicious and approachable kombuchas that are naturally low in sugar. And while the team has expanded since Emily and Brigette took off with their new venture, wild tea kombucha continues to create and reinvent the way we expect kombucha to taste, making the most delish, raw, unpasteurized, naturally-fermented kombuchas on the market!
This is a first of it’s kind delivery service in Calgary, offering a convenient way people can shop at a big list of retailers they love but might not be able to visit as often due to the pandemic, or other reasons. Being able to get 1 item from 24 different vendors for only $10 delivery is pretty damn good. The ‘next week’ delivery window is a little bit different, so this service might not be for everyone, but it makes logistical sense they would need additional time to put orders together. Excited to see where it goes! Love the innovation as well. COVID19 sure sucks but as they say, necessity is the mother of invention.

Would love to see a list with eastern European stores. We have quite a few in Calgary and at this point you can drive around for hours until you get what you need.
Thanks for sharing! This was really insightful 🙂
