The Chichen farm is the result of Arturo Gelpke's dream to grow coffee in his hometown of Coban. In 1970, he leapt at the opportunity when land became available. Today, his sons manage the farm and continue his legacy, one of whom studied agriculture in college. This coffee is rich and easy drinking with chocolate and marshmallow notes backed by a hint of dried fruit.

This family-owned roasterie was founded in 2015 with 16-year-old Keegan Street roasting as a hobby from the rooftop of his family home in Fernie, BC. A year later, the family took the leap, got a commercial drum roaster and haven’t looked back since. Today, Rooftop roasts and brews coffee in the heart of historic downtown Fernie in their newly opened coffee bar/roasterie. Their current HQ is actually located below the roof where it all started! Though they’ve now moved down to the ground floor, they still feel the same excitement every time they open a fresh bag of green coffee.
