Portfolio coffee is for all home baristas
Portfolio has a simple mission: to help people (re)discover coffee by offering fresh, direct-trade coffee roasted in Canada.
If you’re new to the world of specialty coffee, we welcome you to experience how nuanced and flavourful coffee can taste. If you’re a seasoned coffee expert, we invite you to enjoy unpretentious, high-quality coffee.
What we do
Here at Portfolio Coffee we directly source specialty coffees from renowned farms all over the world and hand roast them fresh in our roastery in Toronto, Canada before delivering them to your door. This farm-to-cup approach allows us more control over the coffee origin, quality, and consistency, and also empowers coffee farmers and cooperatives.
Choosing our coffees
We make a point to only source specialty coffee that rates 80 and above on the Specialty Coffee Association scale (whenever applicable) as these are the most delicious coffees out there. Our team of coffee experts also tests our selection weekly through a process called coffee cupping to make sure the coffee quality is consistent bag after bag.
We firmly believe coffee should be appreciated freshly roasted. Coffee starts losing its delicious components the moment it is roasted and the longer it stays in transit or sits on shelves, the flatter it will be. That’s why we stamp the roast date on the back of every bag and offer delivery and pick-up options that suit your schedule - so you can enjoy great coffee at peak freshness.
Approachable coffee experience
We strongly believe coffee is something to be enjoyed and great coffee should not be limited to experts with vast coffee knowledge or expensive equipment. Tasting and brewing great coffee is within reach regardless of how deep you are into your coffee discovery journey. Some people like espressos, some people prefer automatic drippers, and some people enjoy both! We ditch the pretentious coffee snob talk and welcome all brewing methods and all coffee equipment, from the latest, cuttind-edge espresso machine to the simple utensils everyone has in their kitchen.
Whole beans or professionally ground
Part of being approachable is offering you whole beans and professionally ground coffee. If you have access to a coffee grinder at home, that’s great! We totally encourage you to grind your coffee moments before brewing - it can be an experience in itself. We also know coffee grinders can be expensive and should never be in the way of great coffee. That’s why we offer to grind your coffee order prior to packing according to your preferred brewing method. The grind size can make a huge difference in taste and brewing with the right one will help you enjoy the best of your freshly roasted beans.
Custom coffee subscriptions
Coffee subscriptions are great, except when they come with conditions. At Portfolio we do things differently. Don’t be trapped into long commitments. Don’t subscribe to coffees you don’t really want. Our coffee subscriptions are fully custom to give you total control.
