ABOUT MELK

 

Back in 2011, Dominique Jacques and Myriam Asselin set out on a venture to open a restaurant. However, fate had a different plan when an extraordinary cup of coffee crossed their path, captivating even Dominique, who had never considered himself a coffee enthusiast. This unexpected encounter sparked a new idea, leading them to pivot and open a café instead. After an extensive search for the perfect location, their quest brought them to Monkland Avenue in Montreal's Notre-Dame-de-Grâce, where they established MELK in 2013 as a third wave coffee shop.

 

As their business thrived, so did their desire to offer coffee that resonated deeply with their values. This pursuit led them on a quest to source responsibly-grown beans, eventually discovering exceptional farms in Ethiopia, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua. These farms embraced the principles of biodynamic farming—a holistic approach that prioritizes soil health and strives for self-sufficiency by continuously revitalizing the land after each harvest. Fueled by their determination to witness this process firsthand, the team embarked on a remarkable journey to Honduras, where they had the privilege of touring one of their partner farms and closely observing each step of the intricate process.
