Firebat Coffee Roasters is a small-batch, specialty coffee roaster based in Oakville, Ontario. Established in 2016 with an inspiration to create a bridge between Salvadoran coffee farms & Canadian coffee community. They source high scoring coffees directly from small scale artisan coffee producers in El Salvador.


Firebat stands for three principles: flavour, sustainability, and transparency. While sourcing coffees with complex and consistent flavour profiles, they also look that those coffees are rooted in sustainability. All their beans are sourced through Direct Trade with no intermediaries; hence they personally know the producers they work with.  Direct Trade allows the producers to gain independence from the commodity market and get significantly higher price for their beans. 


Firebat has partnered with producers who are committed to their local communities and to the environment by following shade-grown practices. Shade-grown coffee is grown under the canopy of trees in harmony with nature. Most of El Salvador’s remaining forest is associated with coffee production and choosing shade-grown coffee can have a great impact on preserving local eco-systems while providing rural communities with a reliable source of income for years to come.  


Firebat's beans are slow roasted in small-batches weekly. Slow roasting develops all the good flavours and aromas inherent to the great work achieved by the producers during the farming stage. Firebat coffees are sweet, balanced and clean. They have a wide, seasonal selection of single farm coffees to showcase different bean varieties and processing methods for anyone to find the kind of coffee they like. For each coffee they share the origin story from the farm, how the beans were grown and processed.
