Any coffee roasters in/near North York, Toronto?

There was a post a few years back asking a similar question, but all the suggestions were coffee shops that were located deep in the downtown (except for the mention of Loblaws at Empress Walk). So my question is, are there any local coffee roasters where I can buy freshly roasted, whole beans here in the North York area (Yonge and Finch)? Or any place between North York and the airport? Thanks.

    Dark City Coffee will mail out roasted coffee for next day delivery.

      And this is why Chowhound is a wealth of information. I live near Social Coffee Company and had no idea it existed! Time to go......

        I agree Social Coffee and Tea is a great suggestion. If you don't mind having your coffee shipped..

        Out of province, but they do have free shipping in all of Canada for order over $25

        As with all good roasters, all the above will ship your purchase within a day or two of roasting.

          Thanks! Delivery sounds like a great time saver! That 3-month subscription option for Detour Coffee is an interesting idea.

          Social Coffee Company near Leslie & 7. IMHO, the best coffee being roasted in Ontario these days.

          They ship free on orders over $20 (essentially two or more 3/4lb bags). I usually get my shipments the day after they were roasted.
