A glimpse into who we are

North Brew Coffee

North Brew Coffee is a new company devoutly dedicated to providing 100% organic, fair trade, and locally grown coffee beans roasted to perfection. Not only are we supporting our farmers by being Fairtrade certified, but we also donate a portion of our proceeds to a local Ottawa charity, The Mission. We don’t just take pride in our coffee, we take pride in being a part of something greater than ourselves, bringing homelessness to an end and creating a more hopeful future for all.


Our story

North Brew Coffee wasn’t developed in a boardroom filled with fluorescent lights, but instead in the heart of young entrepreneur James Rankin. With a passion to give back to his community and a drive to start his own business, North Brew Coffee came to life late one night in a college dorm room. Since then, James has put the school on hold to pursue his company. As he says, “I can go back to school any time, but for now I just want to continue building.”

What started with one person and a million possibilities has developed into an innovative group that is striving to make those possibilities a reality.  James continues, “I have a team now. A small team, but it’s good to have found people with the same vision I did.” This heart of North Brew Coffee is driven by a passion to create a more hopeful future wherever they may have influence. “The Mission” is a charity based in Ottawa ON. that provides shelter, food, clothing, and offers faith in building a wholesome life to the city’s most vulnerable.

North Brew sends proceeds to “The Mission” in support of their efforts to be a part of something greater than themselves. However, we don’t stop there; all of our coffee beans are locally roasted in Ottawa as well as being Fairtrade and Pro-cert Organics certified.
