Local folks may now have heard the news that our market hall is threatened with closure. Centennial Market sprang up nearly three years ago when the Sears Outlet Store closed down. The market manager formed an agreement with the property managers so that the market could exist in the huge empty space while they tried … Continue reading Losing our home?
We have NEWS: we finally decided to say goodbye to our Wheelie coffee cart. I'll admit that I am unlikely to tow it about any more on the bike now that I have a roof and permanent digs at Centennial Markets, and after 5 summers, the poor cart is a little worse for wear anyway. … Continue reading Bye bye bike cart
It has taken me two weeks to get a chance to write this blog - and it's going to be a long one because we had such an amazing time! A long time ago, Wheelie Good Coffee was randomly invited to the Producer and Roaster Forum in Guatemala City. The event was organised in part … Continue reading Coffee Producer and Roaster Forum

We have moved again! Wheelie Good Coffee now supplies the Beans part of Books and Beans. Same delicious pourover coffee, and the fresh roasted Wheelie Good beans are available in the store too, but now much more space for the books! We are still in Centennial Market, that is, the old Sears outlet building, but … Continue reading Books and Beans has taken over
I posted a huge Thank You to everyone who came down to Centennial Market at the weekend, as we had an exceptionally busy day! Lots of changes have been happening up there, and we're very lucky to have some 'prime real estate' at the market now, right in the middle in our little wooden booth. … Continue reading Looking ahead…
I have a bookstore!! Well, sort of. For a while, I was chatting to the owners of Flip Our Pages, a little book stall on Centennial Market. Sadly, they no longer have the time to run the book business on top of their own full time jobs and looking after their small daughter (oh how … Continue reading Books and Beans combined at last!
YUK. Take a guess at how many coffee cups are discarded in Canada every year? 1.6 BILLION Or over 4.3 million PER DAY. Those 'disposable' coffee cups usually end up in landfill, because, to keep them waterproof, they are lined with plastic. This means that they can't be recycled, and take an age to break … Continue reading 5 new Green Goings On
I should really have announced this earlier, but Wheelie Good Coffee is now at Centennial Market! Centennial Market is housed up in the old Sears Warehouse building - which is a great new use of an enormous space. I wasn't sure whether to join this market at first because of time commitments, but I am … Continue reading Centennial Market
As we near Wheelie Good Coffee's fourth birthday - which is, coincidentally, my birthday too - I think it is time to consider upgrading the cart. Mr. Coffee built the Wheelie cart trailer to go on the back of my bike, in our basement over the winter of 2014. Having built it, we then discovered … Continue reading Roasting our way to new wheels!
