At Good Earth we have been creating authentic, community coffeehouses since 1991, serving exceptional coffee and fresh, wholesome food, with a down-to-earth attitude.
We believe in our coffee farmers.
Coffee and espresso are the heart of our business. We believe in exceptional coffee quality, responsible farming, direct trade and small-batch roasting. We seek out farmers who promote environmental sustainability and establish direct trade practices to help improve communities where coffee is grown.
We believe in good food.
Our food is fresh and wholesome. It sets us apart from the competition. Our good food is made fresh in Good Earth's kitchens every day. We serve delicious fresh baked goods and hot breakfasts, hearty soups and stews, fresh salads, and panini. Good Earth is uniquely a coffeehouse with good food.
We believe in community.
Coffeehouses have a long and colourful history. They are places people have gathered for information, conversation, revolution, comfort, and community for centuries. Our coffeehouses are warm, friendly, and inviting. A Good Earth Coffeehouse is a community-gathering place like the coffeehouses of old.
In addition to our high quality coffee program, our food program can represent up to 50% of total sales. This provides higher average customer transaction amounts than competitors and delivers strong sales throughout all day parts.
Our social and environmental initiatives resonate with the demands of today's sophisticated customers and retail landlords. We provide a brand that landlords want in their developments and consumers choose over competitors.
