Our story

Chrissy Durcak founded Dispatch delivering cold brew concentrate by bicycle receiving orders on a Facebook page called "Dispatch Coffee". This evolved to become Montreal’s first espresso truck. Our mission then is still the same one we pursue today: to make high quality responsibly-sourced coffee more accessible. We opened our first cafes in Montreal in 2014, a third in 2016, and now we’re delivering our beans and their stories across Canada and right to your doorstep.

The purpose that drives us

Today, over 25 million small farming families produce over 80% of our world's coffee supply. Low yields and low market prices — a relic of coffee’s colonial past — means the majority of smallholder farmers live in extreme poverty and capture the smallest portion of our industries income. Furthermore, climate change is reducing crop yields, and threatening the Arabica coffee species. We believe there's a better way to do business, and building a fairer and more sustainable future for coffee is our raison d'être.
