Must read

TORONTO and OAKVILLE, ON, Canada – Pilot Coffee Roasters, Toronto’s leading specialty coffee roaster and retailer, will open three locations by June this year. New specialty cafes will be established in downtown Toronto, east Toronto, and downtown Oakville, their first location outside of the city.

The announcement marks an exciting new chapter for Pilot Coffee Roasters who plan to continue their cafe growth over the next several years

“After 13 years of leadership in Canada’s specialty coffee industry, we couldn’t be more excited to expand throughout Toronto, and into new markets like Oakville, for the first time.” says Bruce Miller, CEO of Pilot Coffee Roasters. “From our roastery to our cafes, we’ve established an unparalleled experience by sourcing high quality specialty coffees from Direct Trade partners in the best growing regions in the world.”

Pilot Coffee follows a Direct Trade sourcing method for their signature blends and most of their seasonal single origin coffees. Through this method, the roaster is in direct communication with the coffee producer; they personally visit each farm and build genuine, lasting relationships, so the premium coffee prices go straight from Pilot Coffee to their Direct Trade partners. This relationship-based philosophy ensures the highest standards of quality, sustainability and the ability to share each coffee’s story with their customers.

The Pilot Coffee cafe experience has been internationally recognized for its modern aesthetic, state-of-the-art equipment and Scandinavian inspired design. They feature a range of espresso and brew options, Pilot Cold Brew™ on tap, rotating seasonal drinks, brewing equipment and retail items, and a growing menu of baked goods made fresh daily.

Toronto openings in the Bay Adelaide Centre and 50 Wagstaff Drive are set for this May, while their Oakville location at 251 Lakeshore Rd. E. will open in June. Increasing their cafe tally to nine, Pilot Coffee also plans to strengthen their online retail experience and wholesale operations across Canada.
