At The Artery Community Roasters, we offer coffee with a conscience. As a social enterprise, we roast delicious coffee that is ethically sourced from farmers, and employ people living with disabilities. We are proud partners of Run Ottawa and ABLE2.

We follow a transparent and equitable Direct Trade model when sourcing our specialty green coffee, thanks to our partners at Semilla Coffee. Direct trade is a form of sourcing that aims to build relationships with the farmers and processors who grow, pick and process our coffee, based on respect and equity.

We believe in trust, transparency and teamwork. When you support us, you are directly supporting worthwhile employment for people with disabilities, and fair wages for the farmers, pickers and processors who are responsible for the exceptional beans we have the honour of roasting.
