Our Story

Our Story

Anarchy Coffee Roasters is a small-batch, ethically sourced coffee roaster based in Kelowna, BC. We offer a wide range of roasts that are energizing, unique, and full of character - just like our love for music. This anarchist-run business is about doing what we love most and providing delicious coffee, good experiences to others, and giving back to those in our communities that need a helping hand.

Established in the valley of Whistler, BC, Anarchy Coffee Roasters began as a pursuit of the perfect cup every morning. After travelling all over the world and experiencing so many delicious cups of coffee, we couldn't help but wonder why coffee in Canada wasn't taken as seriously. We knew there was a better way.

Our journey into coffee roasting began after visiting coffee plantations in Thailand in 2016. Being a hands-on kinda guy, the founder, Bailey, started playing around with the idea of building his own coffee roaster in his workshop. With some success, he realized how amazing freshly roasted quality beans tasted. He knew this would turn into something much bigger...and more fun.

In 2019, Anarchy Coffee Roasters was born with the purchase of a Mill City Coffee Roaster and the help of an old punk rocker friend, Jesse. From that point we have been all about making great coffees, and bringing our community together. If you're looking for a coffee roaster that's all about good vibes, quality beans, and punk rock, Anarchy Coffee Roasters is your go-to.  

Coffee Roaster #1 - Our coffee connoisseurs conducted research into drum-roasting principles and created a one-of-a-kind contraption involving a pot on bearings over a flame, powered by an adjustable electric motor, to achieve precise control over the roasting process and produce exceptional coffee blends.



Coffee Roaster #2 - We continued to refine our drum-roasting principles, building upon our previous experiment and creating a new setup that produced exceptional beans while providing valuable insights on machine operation and roast profiling. The resulting coffee blends were a testament to their dedication to the craft.


 Coffee Roaster #3 - After experimenting with different roasting setups, we recognized the need for a state-of-the-art roasting machine to take their specialty coffee business to the next level. Enter the Mill City 1Kg Roaster - a versatile and adjustable machine that made it possible to duplicate roasts to perfection and ensure consistent quality. It was a dream come true for the company and helped to establish their reputation as a purveyor of exceptional coffee.


1989 Starcraft Trailer - After some serious elbow grease, including ripping it apart, bolting on steel, slapping on a fresh coat of paint, and giving it some serious guts, they transformed it into a fully functional mobile latte-making machine. You can find them at Kelowna Farmers Market every Wednesday and Saturday until November, serving up a variety of delicious fresh-brewed coffee options and offering bags to take home. 


Coffee Roaster #4 - We found the perfect roasting machine in the Mill City 1Kg Roaster but needed something BIGGER, enter the 10Kg model - a versatile and adjustable model that allowed them to consistently duplicate roasts with precision and maintain exceptional quality in our coffee blends. As a bonus, the roaster even came in our signature black colour, making it a perfect fit for the Anarchy brand.
