At the Ottawa Canine School, WE LOVE DOGS and WE LOVE COFFEE! Not just any coffee, but freshly roasted coffee from beans that are organic and have been traded fairly. Barking Barista coffee is just that – Artisan coffee, hand roasted in small batches for ultimate freshness & your tasting pleasure. We offer only the best, fairly traded, beans.
What does this have to do with dogs you ask?
Quite a bit! We are passionate about helping dogs. While you are enjoying a very delicious cup of coffee, you are helping dogs too because part of proceeds goes to help dogs in need. Drink coffee. Help dogs.
A bit about us.
The Barking Barista coffee company is a husband & wife venture. Matt is an engineer by day and coffee roaster by night. He uses both his engineer brain and his creative/intuitive side when roasting. Chantal is a teacher and the owner of the Ottawa Canine School. It only made sense to roast great, fresh, organic, fairly and often directly traded coffee and have part of proceeds go to the dogs.
Some of the dogs the Barking Barista has helped so far.
Since its launch, in December of 2013, the Barking Barista has helped BREEZY, a dog who was severely beaten, received the treatment she deserved and was adopted (and even attended some classes at the Ottawa Canine School with her new owners!) The Barking Barista has also helped GIBSON the Schnauzer, in early 2014 when he needed a bit of help with his medical bills. Gibson is well knows in the local rescue world and has done a lot to help rescue dogs. It was time to give back a little. Part of proceeds also went to help CAPTAIN and other dogs from the Sit With Me Rescue. Chantal had a chance to meet Captain and he is a very sweet dog, though at the time, he was still very groggy from his most recent surgery. The vets do believe that he has suffered quite a bit of physical abuse, which may also be the reason he is blind in one eye.
