Established in 2006, Los Beans is located in Vancouver. The company’s story began 150 years ago, when Mr. Luttmann immigrated to Mexico from Germany and started investing in coffee farms, coffee trading, and helping local communities sell coffee to overseas markets. His son and granddaughter continued this tradition when they opened their roasting facility in Vancouver. In addition to their own sustainability efforts, Los Beans supports organizations such as the Ancient Forest Alliance and Stream Keepers.
