Salt Spring Coffee is celebrating 25 years of producing sustainable coffee with the launch of ground and pod coffee versions of its most popular fair trade, organic coffee blends. Ground coffees are available now for distribution to grocery stores while pod coffees will be available for delivery in early 2022.

“For 25 years Salt Spring Coffee has been dedicated to producing coffee of the highest quality and acting as a force for positive environmental change,” says Mickey McLeod, co-founder and CEO of Salt Spring Coffee. “With more people working remotely, we have seen increased demand for convenient ways to brew specialty coffee at home, which is why we’re delighted to launch ground and pod versions of our most popular coffees.”

The company is offering ground versions of its popular Blue Heron, French Roast, Peru and Swiss Water Decaf coffee blends, which were previously only offered in whole-bean versions.

The pod versions of the company’s coffees will be packaged in sustainable capsules made from plant-based and other compostable materials. Used pods can be disposed in municipal composting programs. Salt Spring Coffee’s pods will be compatible with Keurig coffee machines and feature the Blue Heron, French Roast, Peru and Swiss Water Decaf blends.


Salt Spring Coffee was founded in 1996 by Mickey McLeod and Robbyn Scott. It has grown from a small coffee stall on Salt Spring Island, B.C., to a national brand sold in grocery stores across Canada.
