Anyone know where to buy Stumptown coffee beans in Toronto?

I brought some back from NY and I'm running low. Where can you buy Stumptown in Toronto?

  1. i've gotten Stumptown at Lit before, but i think they may have shifted to only carrying their own beans.

      Yeah, I read something like that when doing a Google search.

    2. Stumptown isn't sold at Lit anymore, they haven't for a long while.

      I was actually very surprised to see that that vegan place in the PATH (Kupfert & Kim) was using Stumptown when I walked past it weeks ago, no idea if they'll sell you bags of beans but you should call them and ask.

        Thanks. I've e-mailed them and they do sell the beans. They carry different blends each week, so you don't have much to choose from but any Stumptown is better than none.

          I don't know about "..any Stumptown is better than none." IMHO I find their Central and South American beans far more superior in flavour than their African beans. My wife and I are big fans of Stumptown and we were so disappointed when LIT parted ways with them. My wife has been to the Kupfert & Kim store and yes it's very limited. If you're lucky you can get a bag of Guatemalan or Costa Rican beans. I still don't know why Stumptown doesn't sell to individual customers up here in the great white north. It would make it so much easier to satiate those "cup-o-Joe" cravings.

            I also prefer Central and South American beans. But I think that's it. I don't like African beans as much, so it doesn't matter if they are Stumptown beans or not.

            You can get any beans you want from Kupfert and Kim. They will order it along with their weekly order. You just have to ask and give them enough time. I got the beans I wanted.

      2. Why don't you just call them?

            Was there a good variety of beans or again very limited?

              No way!! - I am in WAshington DC and tried for the first time the Costa Rican - bought some tremendous beans to bring home and was already panicking to see where you can get them in Toronto - it seemed hopeless till I just saw your post - guess what?!? I live one half block south of this place at Queen and Tecumseth - just had never been in - Wow!! 0 thanks for your post - totally the most useful thing I've read all day!!!
