A life-long global coffee explorer, Janet has sipped coffee for over 3 decades from roadside bicycle vendors from Turkey to Kyoto and sat at the bars of the coffee hot spots from Rome to Bangkok. Finally landing back in her hometown of Ottawa in 2017 she decided to open her own cafe and share her love of superb espresso, international drinks and nurturing interior design.
A portion of Ottawa Coffee Fest’s proceeds will go to supporting Birch Bark Coffee Company’s water initiative for Ontario reserves. Through the sales of its coffee, the Birch Bark Coffee Company plans to take immediate action to elevate the on-going “Boiled Water Advisories” in Ontario and help the other provinces across Canada. For every 40 bags of coffee sold, they will be able to equip one home with a water filtration unit for their home.
They have collaborated with Can-Am Wellness to purchase their certified Belkcraft Four-Stage and Six-Stage Water Filtration Systems, and plan to install them at no cost to Indigenous families and communities suffering from poor water conditions on every reserve in Ontario.
