Meet Our Roasters - Seventh Coffee Company

Updated: Mar 3

Seventh Coffee Company is a coffee roaster out of Brantford, Ontario, Canada, owned and operated by Mike Gatopoulos. Seventh Coffee focuses on small batch freshly roasted coffee that tastes amazing while leaning into being a social enterprise dedicated to making the world a slight better place, one cup of coffee at a time.

Mike and the team at Seventh Coffee have built a philosophy around seven key pillars;

  1. Creativity: innovative coffee blends that turn casual sippers into coffee enthusiasts

  2. Service and Support: lead with positivity and always be available to help customers

  3. Education: support coffee drinkers where they are in their coffee journey by answering questions they may have - providing an inviting environment for coffee drinkers to feel comfortable to ask question

  4. Care: care about the coffee that is roasted and brewed

  5. Social Responsibility: be active within the community and support causes that are close to their hearts

  6. Transparency: keep customers in the know about their sourcing practices, roasting and the causes they support

  7. Quality: every coffee bean they put in their bags (and in your cup) must always be of high quality

To better understand Seventh Coffee Co, you need to better understand the story behind it.

On August 22nd, 2017, Mike's son, Jack, was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder called Williams Syndrome. Williams Syndrome is a genetic condition that is present at birth and can affect anyone. It is characterized by medical problems, including cardiovascular disease, developmental delays, and learning challenges. These often occur side by side with striking verbal abilities, highly social personalities and an affinity for music. It affects around 1 in 10,000 people. Williams Syndrome is caused by the spontaneous deletion of 26-28 genes on chromosome 7, hence Seventh Coffee Company. The logo is missing part of the 7 as a constant reminder to Mike of the importance of Seventh Coffee Company.

I've been lucky to try a few different coffees from Seventh Coffee but my favourite s easily their 'A Little Stitious' blend! This blend beautifully balances earthy notes with subtle milk chocolate basically offering the perfect amount of sweetness, without an overpowering roasty taste. I highly recommend trying this one!
