AGRICULTURAL GROWERS RESOURCE ORGANIZATION – Agro Roasters

agroroasters.com [cached]

It all started in 2005 when Blake Hanacek co-founded AGRODEV, a non-governmental organization aiming to develop Kenya's agriculture industry at the community level by promoting grassroots organic and sustainable practices.

Inspired by AGRODEV, in October 2006 Blake founded Agro Roasters, with the goal to fulfill the increasing demand of specialty and sustainable coffee in Vancouver. In a matter of months they had opened cafés on Granville Island and Yaletown.
With increasing demand from the wholesale side of the business, Blake and his partner, Lee, decided to scale down and sell the other two coffee shops, keeping only the East Vancouver location, which is also home of our roasting facility.
...
When Dusty heard that Blake and Lee were planning on making a career change, he and Marina talked and realized it was their turn to venture out on their own, and bought Agro Roasters.
