ABOUT OUGHTRED COFFEE & TEA:
In 1973 on beautiful British Columbia’s Vancouver Island, John William Oughtred Sr. put down roots in the West Coast coffee industry, founding Oughtred Coffee & Tea. From these humble beginnings emerged a resounding family business that would one day stand tall in the coffee industry. Now in their second generation of ownership, the company stands proudly managed by John Sr.’s sons Michael and John Jr., expanding the vast global coffee network their father established.
Maintaining the company’s core principles, the sons now charge headfirst into the 21st century as global leaders and experts within their industry. They believe that drawing out the subtle nuances in coffee requires working closely with each partner in the supply chain. It’s their passion to uncover the most expressive and flavourful coffee from around the world, curating the important relationships needed to deliver this experience along the way.
Pouring generations of passion and experience into our craft, our commitment is to great coffee from our table to yours.
