Description: Produce a great tasting coffee "From Farm to Cup" and meet business and community needs. We believe that providing good employment and a good work place benefits everyone. What Africa needs is economic development, not more aid. Aid often allows governments to escape their responsibilities, skews local economics and does not allow people to achieve their full sense of self-worth and achievement. Good employment allows people to provide for their families, reach their full potential, and improves self-esteem. We consistently strive to achieve this in both Africa where our coffee is grown, and in Canada, where it is roasted, distributed and promoted. We believe that communities are not just places where we live and do business but an integral part of what makes us who we are. And, we are going to have a good time doing this!

Presentation in every way is great that anyone will admire it and feel that can I have similar in my town. Specialty is the fresh coffee beans roasted at the cafe, so really fresh. Chai fog also great and mostly, it won't come with sugar added, so if you are a diabetic then perfect for us. Atmosphere is wonderful, I... More

Tried their pumpkin spice lattes (made with real pumpkin - yum!!) Also tried a sandwich and muffin which were so-so. But clearly coffee is what these folks are famous for!

When I heard the story of Ashanti Café, I wanted to try it. I found it remarkable that first, you grow a coffee plantation with your choice of beans, bring it home to a small Ontario town, and open a couple of coffee shops that serve your own choice of beans! So naturally, I wanted to taste the Ashanti coffee.... More

The staff here are really sweet and the coffee is excellent. I often get the organic earl grey tea which is done to perfection. They have a great selection of pastries, sweets, muffins, et al as well as gluten free sandwiches. The atmosphere is a very nice coffee shop. Lots of room between tables so you can have your privacy.... More

We went to this coffee shop numerous times while we were on vacation in Collingwood and really enjoyed it. The atmosphere is pleasant and so was the staff. We also had breakfast the last day we were in town and enjoyed the food too not just the coffee.

Great place to meet friends and sip a cup of bold Java. The owners are friendly and the staff has their busy times but remains calm. Fun times.

We have stopped in for our coffee and pick up a muffin for our drive. Hope to have time to sit and enjoy the nice atmosphere sometime. They have an outdoor seating area and on nice days they open a garage door and you can sit indoors and feel like you are outside. The coffee has been good each time... More

We had a small breakfast there which included a grill cheese with either chips or carrot sticks. Prices were very reasonable and they had really good fresh coffee and a great selection of... More

We were here twice this week. The décor and atmosphere were nice actually but their coffee was just ok. I ordered a decaf latte and it was SUPER strong. Honey had the vanilla latte and it was better. At least they didn't use those awful Monin syrups (they give a bitter aftertaste). Service was good. Didn't really expect much for... More
