The Heritage of the Muskoka Roastery Coffee Co.
The rugged landscape of Muskoka was settled more than a century ago by men and women who were determined to build a new life. When the Snell family carved out a homestead a stone’s throw from the towering pines and maples of what is now Algonquin Park, they were driven by a pioneering spirit that continues to this day.
Surviving by their wits and strength as farmers and Algonquin lumberman, the Snells developed a fierce love for the land and a strong tradition of hard work, seasoned with a taste for adventure. It is this heritage that now guides the Muskoka Roastery Coffee Company.
When William Snell first raised a family in the wilderness more than a century ago, he was a Muskoka pioneer. Now great grandson Douglas is a pioneer in his own right as the first Coffee Roaster of the region. With a deep sense of history, years of specialized training, and a great desire for that perfect brew, he is creating a unique line of coffee blends. They’re distinctively Canadian – authentic regional flavours from sweet maple to rich, earthy espresso.
Whether you’re brewing up a coffee over a campfire in the heart of Algonquin Park, enjoying the rustic experience of a lakeside cottage, or simply relaxing at home, take the time to inhale the aroma and experience the Taste of the Wilderness!
