We can hardly believe that we are approaching the second anniversary of Bow River Coffee Company!
Starting our business plans just before covid (does anyone remember life before covid anymore? 😊), obtaining all the required permits, building out the roastery and getting our health inspection approval led to our business launch in December 2020.
One of our goals from the beginning was to maintain our pricing for as long as we were able. Over the past year, like everyone else, we’ve experienced the challenge of rising costs. We have absorbed this pressure up until now, but as we face additional cost increases, we need to adjust accordingly.
We could have made the decision to purchase non-specialty grade coffee to lower the cost of our green beans but purchasing specialty grade green coffee is important to us because of the impact for coffee farmers. Growing – and selling – specialty grade coffee allows farmers to secure more revenue for their product and this increased revenue allows them to upgrade both their equipment and processes to make their farms more sustainable
So, what does this mean for you?
Effective October 1, 2022, we will make the following adjustments:
Our bag sizes will stay the same and the price will increase by $1 for the 340g bags and $2.60 for our 1kg bag
LOCAL DELIVERY – CALGARY AREA
There will now be a minimum order of $35 for free local delivery. If your order total is less than $35, there will be a $5 charge for local delivery.
We are moving to a regional model for the minimum order total thresholds for free shipping across Canada. Those thresholds are as follows:
Western Canada (BC,AB,SK,MB) $ 54.95
Ontario & Quebec $ 79.95
Atlantic Canada $129.95
We truly appreciate the support we have received from every one of our customers – our business is nothing without each of you.
Transparency and honesty have always been very important to us which is why we wanted to be upfront and share this information with you. It’s our sincere hope that you’ll continue to support our small business as we continue on our mission to roast high quality coffee and help coffee lovers make great coffee at home.
