Bows & Arrows is a small family and friend run business in Victoria, BC. We’re a collection of stray coffee professionals taking a run at making something good while every day making something fantastic – perfect coffee. But it’s tricky. Our motivations are simple within a vast industry. We wish to do right by and for the people who permit our livelihood. We want to tangibly support and enjoy success with producers. We want to share exemplary coffees with our friends, partners, and customers. We want to challenge ourselves to do better, engage ethically and answer to our conscience in a changing physical climate and troubled political landscapes. The vast majority of the coffee trade, as it is, is unsustainable – (even) within the niche of specialty coffee. We want to see what’s possible and prove these nice ideas true.
