WE ARE COFFEE OBSESSED
Coffee is sexy. So sexy. And for years we couldn't get enough! When Matt became obsessed with his coffee roasting hobby we wondered if we should take the plunge to create a full fledged roastery. At the urging of our friends, avid coffee lovers, who said "we need MORE of this coffee", Matt and Kristen leapt off the mountain to launch Lord & Lady Coffee.
Armed with partners, Jodie & Shauna Jenkins, and a vision to get better coffee into your kitchen, Lord & Lady was created to be a double edged sword - GREAT COFFEE and IMPACT resonating at the local community and global level. A portion of every bag sold goes to incredible organizations. Visit OUR IMPACT for more information.
Founded in 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic has been a whirlwind ride for the Lord & Lady Team! Our roaster arrived the week before the first province-wide shutdown but we forged ahead, meeting with local retail businesses and launching an online shop.
As a small roastery it is uncommon to be certified FAIRTRADE, but it was important to us to provide responsibly sourced coffee. We know this matters to you. Though there have been limitations on bean sourcing during COVID, with no travel or means to connect locally with direct trade coffee partners, we will be offering DIRECT TRADE soon!
Matt O'Coin - Head Roaster & Founder
For Matt, the search for a better cup of coffee will never end. Matt has been working on creating his perfect cup of coffee for 8 years, and we aren’t sure he will ever stop pursuing it.
His passion for roasting coffee started as a hobby with a meager home roaster, a tarp and some duct tape. As a successful entrepreneur and business owner, he was convinced that someday this hobby could turn into a full fledged coffee roastery.
Matt has spent years roasting, experimenting and having fun with coffee, and it has all led to this. His love of coffee has resulted in hours of study and research on everything coffee related.

Kristen O'Coin - Managing Director
Kristen's love of coffee runs deep (fuelled mostly by her three kids), but even deeper is her love for seeing dreams made reality. Her love of coffee has been influenced by none other than her husband and roaster, Matt, who even successfully converted her to drinking her coffee black!
She keeps track of all of us and pulls out the best from the team. Take a goal, turn it into a plan and make it happen. These are the words Kristen lives by. She is the keeper of our checklists, our spreadsheets and our dreams. With a background in project management and as an entrepreneur and partner with her husband Matt, Kristen manages the operations of Lord & Lady.
Kristen's dream for you - getting the best cup of coffee into your hot little hands.
