OUR STORY

At Bono Coffee, we are committed in developing exceptional specialty coffee. Bono Coffee is a family owned business based in Calgary, sharing our deep-rooted Ethiopian coffee culture to our community.

Growing up in Ethiopia, Bono Coffee founders, Dawit Wubie and Danait Tesfay have first hand experience in the daily life of hand roasting coffee and transforming it into the most magical cup of coffee ever tasted.

It all started in 2012, when Dawit traveled to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia for business venture and joined his sister in the coffee roasting business and supplying it to local shops and stores. From there, his passion for coffee flourished and he made it his goal to bring Ethiopian coffee to his community, here in Calgary and to the world.

Having to start a family, Dawit’s coffee dream was put on hold. In 2019 Dawit together with Danait decided to start a small batch coffee roasting company and supplied it to his community within various farmers markets. Bono Coffee Roasters was born and now people everywhere can experience that magical tasting cup of coffee. With amazing community support and feedback, Bono Coffee is committed to grow and serve the local community.

Making a difference

We deeply value our farmer and supplier that consists of 70% women employees. They also ensure that each farmer is paid fairly through the out-growers program while supporting their community by building roads, hospitals and schools.

It is no secret that the worlds most delicate, complex and finest specialty coffee comes from Ethiopia, where our deep-rooted coffee culture comes from. We believe our coffee does not only make a great tasting cup of coffee but should be means to bridge coffee farmers to their communities and individuals.

Working directly with farmers and producers, with the goal of sustainable and profitable growth is our core value.
Bono Coffee gives you more than just a cup of coffee, it gives you a piece of Ethiopian culture.

We stopped here while waiting for our car to be fixed near by, and it was one of the best decisions we made! Dawit, the owner, is absolutely wonderful. He was so very welcoming and interesting to talk to. He roasts his own beans in house, the coffee that he makes is some of the very best I've had in a long time. If you are ever in the area I would highly recommend Bono Coffee for the beans, the drinks, and the service!

Great place! I went here for the first time today as I like going to locally-owned coffee shops. Super delicious coffee, I had a latte and it was very smooth and the perfect temperature. Also they have free wifi, nice seating and don’t mind if you sit for a while working!

Whenever we are in Calgary my wife likes to check out Rick Rack Textiles (next door to Bono Coffee). The staff at Rick Rack recommended Bono and we now make sure to grab a coffee every time. The staff at Bono is always very friendly, the coffee is superb. We picked up a bag of their beans (roasted, small batch on site) and look forward to trying them at home. Bono is a real find!

As a coffee lover I have never been blown away by coffee like this. Freshly roasted beans from Ethiopia; ethical, organic, fair trade. No middle man who steals the money from the company or farmers. I love the fact that they roast the beans fresh in house; and you can definitely tell by the smell. I worked at Starbucks for 2 years and they don’t even come close in comparison. The flavour, the balance, and the effect from Bono Coffee is something else. I struggle now feeling any effect from caffeine and I got the jitters for the first time in years after drinking a 16oz drink. If you’re looking to support local small businesses I highly recommend you checking out Bono Coffee. The cafe space is adorable and very aesthetically pleasing to the eye, they don’t blast super loud music; so you could study and sit there for a while, the space is bright and very welcoming. The owners are super sweet, and the whole staff are very friendly.
