Roasters Pack is the subscription club for coffee geeks
Toronto has plenty of great coffee roasters but what do you do if you want to try them all - plus the dozens (and counting) of other roasters percolating across the country? If you're Suneal Pabari and Adam Frank you scratch your own itch and create The Roasters Pack, a Toronto start-up that takes inspiration from the numerous delivery services and subscription clubs. Each month they send a box containing beans from three different independent roasters.
My first box arrived this week and in it where beans from Bean North Coffee Roasting Co. (WhiteHorse) Carvalho Coffee (Oakville) and Diesel House Coffee Roasters (Bracebridge). The cost to subscribe falls between $27 and $30 a month depending on how long you sign up for but you can specify your grind (anything from Whole Beans to Extra Fine) and it all comes neatly packaged in a cardboad box making for hours of fun unboxing over the course of a year.
