Birch Bark Coffee Co., established in Ottawa in March 2018, is an Indigenous-owned and operated small business that is proud to offer organic, fair-trade coffee grown by sustainable co-ops. A portion of every bag sold goes toward bringing clean drinking water to Indigenous homes suffering under Boil Water Advisories.
About the blend: The Ojibwe believe that night is full of both good and bad dreams. When a dream catcher is hung above the place where you sleep, it moves freely in the night air and catches your dreams as they drift by.
Dream Catcher is a blend of medium and dark-roasted decaffeinated coffee from Honduras. The dominant indigenous culture in the area is Lenca — the Lenca language, sadly, is now extinct. The coffee is decaffeinated using the Swiss Water Process whereby 99.9% of the caffeine is removed using nothing but water and carbon filters. This blend has a strong nutty flavour and a subtle acidity.
