Made in the Maritimes

Our Maritime Heritage

Brad Ship Photo

I heard a story told many years about how coffee used to arrive in the Maritimes aboard wooden sailing ships.  During the voyage, the coffee would be exposed to the ocean air, causing a change to the coffee.   

As the story went, when the shipping industry switched to steel hulled ships people wanted the old better tasting coffee back.

As a longtime coffee lover, this story has stuck with me throughout the years as I always wondered if the story was true and what that coffee must have tasted like.

I retold this story to my partner Laura, who is a brilliant chemist.  Her reply was that since the coffee roasting process is a chemical process, she could likely recreate this coffee through some research and scientific testing. 

After numerous experiments and trials, we were drinking a delicious coffee with some really unique flavours and properties.  I was thrilled to learn that the story was true!

We were excited to share this delicious coffee with the world, so we set up a booth at the Garrison Night Market in Fredericton.   Our first summer at the market we sold out pretty much every night.  Our little roaster was running overtime!

At the end of the summer we decided to go all in on this Saltwinds Coffee journey, and the rest is history!  We have expanded our offering through partnerships with specialty gift stores, retail and specialty grocery stores.  Our online store has had sales from the farthest point in the East of Canada to the farthest point to the West of Canada and many points in between!

Be sure to pick some up today!
