Kaapittiaq donates 75% of all profits to Inuit culture and language programs in the Central Canadian Arctic.

BUILDING CULTURE THROUGH COFFEE

Kaapittiaq means 'good coffee' in Inuinnaqtun, and that is what we produce. We source green beans from Indigenous farmers in Peru and transform them into the Arctic's finest brew. We are an Inuit owned and operated business that is dedicated to supporting the survival and revival of our culture.

Each year 75% of profits are donated to the Pitquhirnikkit Ilihautiniq / Kitikmeot Heritage Society and are invested in programs that promote Inuit culture, language and knowledge.

With every purchase of Kaapittiaq, you support the wellbeing and cultural survival of Indigenous communities in Northern Canada and in South America.
