Petit Ami is a locally owned and operated coffee shop built on a foundation of commitment. Commitment to serve our customers a superior cup of coffee with friendly, passionate service. Commitment to our planet, to keep our environmental footprint as small as possible. Commitment to be ethically honourable in all of our dealings with farmers, suppliers and partners along the way.
We’ve built a relationship with a premier grower in Mexico who is also a roaster here in Vancouver – LosBeans. LosBeans is a family owned Vancouver-based coffee grower, roaster and green bean broker who provides us with all of our organic, shade-grown, estate grown, bird-friendly and Rain Forest Alliance certified coffees from Mexico and around the World. Los Beans is also certified carbon neutral.
We roast in small batches which means fresher, finer coffee overall. Our roasting method is superior to traditional roasters because LosBeans uses the state-of-the-art Loring Smart Roaster, which utilizes a patented heat re-circulating process to minimize environmental impact and conserve natural gas. This carbon neutral roaster reduces energy consumption and C02 emissions by almost 200 tons of CO2 per year. All of this, PLUS it delivers the best cup of coffee you’ve ever tasted. Come and taste the difference.
