May 3rd's speaker was Karla Fester from Frog Friendly Coffee, an ethically sourced coffee roasting company based in Canoe.  The family-oriented business is eco-friendly with a history in Oaxaca, Mexico. Begun as a partnership 14 years ago  the coffee beans are sourced in that region from a variety originally from Ethiopia.  They are grown wild in the cloud mountains above Oaxaca.   The company invests in the health and well-being of the local residents and makes their business work to the benefit of everyone. The beans travel to Vancouver and on to the roasting facility in Canoe, BC, where they are roasted to order as freshness is important.  The company now supplies close to 2000 grocery stores across BC.
