Call it a vision, a dream, a purpose: we want to roast great coffee and work with great people to do it. It seems simple, but behind each bag of Pilot beans is a whole intercontinental network of dedicated individuals and a lot of hard work. What drives us is our passion. What guides us are our core commitments to quality, innovation, exceptional service.

You can’t talk about Toronto coffee roasters without Pilot coming into the conversation at some point, so we might as well kick it off with them! Their headquarters is located at the east end of the city, but their work extends far further afield. To start, they source their beans directly from farmers, making sure each batch comes from growers that are paid fairly for their services whether the product comes from Brazil, Ethiopia, Kenya or Columbia. Their beans come in 12oz batches and start at $17.50. Subscriptions are available for three, six and twelve months, starting from $120. If you’re a lazy son of a gun, their beans can be bought in brewed fashion at Te Aro and Crafted. It’s worth noting that Pilot sells gear as well, as high quality brewers, grinders and kits are up for grabs at their warehouse.
