Timbertrain coffee was built on a dream of bringing people together through a passion for doing what we love: coffee. It didn’t take long for us to realize that people gathered, shared experiences and were brought together over cups of coffee. That there was a culture there rooted in community, education and experience. The culture behind this takes an inside look to the consideration that goes into handling, preparation and sourcing of coffee and that behind the end result was a skillfully crafted process. From machinery to sourcing, there was a lot that went behind manufacturing coffee. And so Timbertrain was born.

With the desire to turn this fervent passion into a reality, Timbertrain opened up its first location in Gastown, Vancouver.

Since then, the Timbertrain team has become committed to researching, finding and sourcing from quality farms around the world. Once the beans have been carefully selected for their grade and high farming ethos, they are shipped to Vancouver and expertly roasted in-house at our Depot location.

Sustainability is our priority. It is Timbertrain’s pleasure to closely monitor the rigorous process that coffee takes – from ethically sourcing exceptional beans and hand roasting them in-house – and sharing them with you.

Roasting & Coffee

All of our coffee is hand-roasted by us on a weekly basis at Depot. We source the beans that we need and do not overstock excess – being solely committed to providing only the highest quality beans and the amounts that we need. Our roasting is performed with care and precision to deliver the best aromas and tasting notes that reflect our sense of craftsmanship and commitment to what we do.We alternate what we roast by what is in season as well as by trying out beans from different farms and areas of the world. We’re always eager to try out new roasts and to share our coffee findings with you. We offer a selection of beans available to order for your business or event. Our wholesale beans come in 12oz & 5 pound bags and roasted weekly. Contact us if you are interested in ordering or wanting to partner up for ongoing purchases of our beans.

Equipments

We provide information on quality equipment used in the coffee industry and how to use and take care of machinery. We work with our business partners who specialize in working with commercial-grade quality equipment with brands such as Nuova Simonelli, La Marzocco, Slayer, Fetco and more. We are also able to assist you in sourcing the ideal espresso machines, grinders, brewers and more for your needs as well as consultations in opening a new cafe of your own. Contact us for more information on equipment or specific inquiries.

Training & Quality Audit

Our goal is to share our coffee knowledge with anyone interested in learning and discovering more about techniques, processes, flavours and overall coffee education. We offer cuppings, tours and classes at our Grandview-Woodlands location, Depot, and are also committed to sharing resources and guides to help you understand more about our offerings or brewing methods. Our training space includes a full espresso machine with 2 group-heads, industry standard grinders to demonstrate performance and showcase differences in grinding, as well as having all of this located in a private setting with room to get some hands-on experience.

We work with our wholesale clients individually to make sure the coffee we provide for them is the right fit for their cafe or business. We strive to form relationships and provide continuous assistance with you to ensure that quality products are always being made. Conducting regular quality audits where we work with clients to evaluate how their bar is performing and what improvements can be made is another asset to our wholesale customers. This allows for constant adjustments and improvements in speed, efficiency and product knowledge in the field. Likewise to this, we also tailer to custom services depending on our clients’ needs as well as providing custom training at our facility. Contact us for more information on any of this or for requests of custom services and classes.
