About JJ Bean


The Neate family has been roasting coffee in Vancouver for four generations. In 1996, John Neate Jr. (JJ) created a company of coffee lovers called JJ Bean.

We believe people have intrinsic value. For that reason, we seek to honour our coffee producers, our staff, and ultimately our customers by only serving the freshest coffee possible.

To this end, we source the highest quality green coffee and roast it in small batches daily, always guided by the same motto: the best taste wins.
