making good coffee
Not your average coffee (or company)
Granito literally means “little grain or bean”, but what inspired us at Granito was a saying… “poner nuestro granito de arena”, or we all have to contribute our little grain of sand (or bean). So, from our farmers in Guatemala to our roasters in Toronto, this is our little contribution to making good coffee better for all of us.
Granito Coffee is shade grown by small-holder farmers and naturally processed by farmer-owned cooperatives.
Jacabo is from Santa Anita La Union, a small community home to 35 families, five different languages (Spanish & 4 Mayan), and one very unique coffee co-op. Jacabo and the farmers in Santa Anita started growing coffee here after after 36 years of civil war. They continue to fight for a better world, using the sale of high-quality coffee and bananas to build infrastructure, fund schools, and feed families.
Granito Coffee carries lots of high-quality gear to help you make your coffee the best it can be.
This season we’re featuring one of the most iconic pour-overs there is. The Chemex was designed in 1941 and is a must-have for any coffee connoisseur. Its non-porous, heat-resistant glass construction, combined with proprietary, scientifically designed filters, makes coffee with clarity and complexity. Since the Chemex is made out of glass, you can watch the coffee as it brews and customize it very easily. The classic Chemex comes in 3, 6 and 8 cup formats.
