What’s Monkland’s story?

For several years, Daniel Léger, president and co-founder of Monkland, has had a great interest in coffee and roasting. During his studies, he experimented with roasting his coffee in his parents' oven, then bought some equipment for roasting samples at home. The idea of ​​creating a business to be able to source, roast and offer specialty coffee germinated during this time. It was therefore shortly after the opening of a new roasting cooperative in Montreal, the "Canadian Roasting Society", that he began to realize his dream.


Monkland Coffee is located in the Notre-Dame-de-Grâce district of Montreal, and they roast their coffee at the Canadian Roasting Society, which is a roasting cooperative located near the Lachine Canal. They also have several points of sale in Montreal.
