FIXED COFFEE & BAKING
Coffee is our passion. At Fixed we believe that coffees should be named by their country, region and farm name, and not by their roast level. We brew one single-origin “coffee of the day”—we never brew blended coffee. We believe that coffee should be “a delicious representation of its region”. We brew only six cups at a time made in a Fetco coffee brewer, to ensure freshness, and if you are ordering a coffee to stay, we can brew your coffee fresh by the cup in a ceramic pour-over.
All of our coffees are seasonal and in line with world coffee harvests. Coffee should be freshly roasted, freshly ground and freshly brewed –it should also be freshly harvested. This is why our coffees are always changing, as new crops become available.
Our coffee is Direct Trade, which means that our coffee roaster and supplier, Anchored Coffee, purchase their green beans directly from the farmer that grew them. This process cuts out the middle man and is mutually beneficial for both the farmer and the roaster.
The farmer does the hard work of growing an excellent crop, and then it is the job of the roaster and barista to make sure that excellence stays with the coffee until it reaches your cup. This is why we only brew medium roast coffees, which best illuminate the nuanced and complex flavours of a well-grown crop.
Quality is an art and a science. That is why we weigh our coffee beans and our water when we make coffee. Every brew method is timed and its temperature read. We ensure that all of our coffees are made to the proper brew strength and extraction ratio. We also taste every pot of coffee we brew, and we taste and adjust our espresso every hour to keep it tasting great.
We believe in wholesome food made fresh, from scratch. That’s why we make our baked goods, breads and bagels fresh every morning. It’s also why we make our own chocolate sauce with dark cocoa, and chai syrup from whole spices. Our hummus comes from dried chickpeas, and our lemon bars are made with squeezed lemons and lemon-zest. We also make our own gluten-free crackers.
Our soups are made from local produce, and our salad ingredients come solely from Murray Meadow’s Farm. Our food is always made fresh and with a concern for flavour and balance.
