Specialty coffee lovers in Oakville will have a new downtown location to try coming this June.

Pilots Coffee Roasters is expanding outside the city of Toronto for the first time and opening a new location in downtown Oakville at 251 Lakeshore Rd. E.

The specialty coffee roaster and retailer will also be opening another two shops in Toronto this month, increasing their cafe tally to nine.

Pilot Coffee also plans to strengthen their online retail experience and wholesale operations across Canada.

“After 13 years of leadership in Canada’s specialty coffee industry, we couldn’t be more excited to expand throughout Toronto, and into new markets like Oakville, for the first time.” says Bruce Miller, CEO of Pilot Coffee Roasters.

“From our roastery to our cafes, we’ve established an unparalleled experience by sourcing high quality specialty coffees from Direct Trade partners in the best growing regions in the world.”

A full-service specialty coffee roaster, online retailer, wholesaler, educator and cafe operator, Pilot Coffee uses a Direct Trade sourcing method for their signature blends and most of their seasonal single origin coffees.

Through this method, the roaster is in direct communication with the coffee producer. They personally visit each farm and build genuine, lasting relationships, so the premium coffee prices go straight from Pilot Coffee to their Direct Trade partners.

Pilot Coffee says this relationship-based philosophy ensures the highest standards of quality, sustainability and the ability to share each coffee’s story with their customers.

Its cafe experience, says Pilot Coffee, has been internationally recognized for its modern aesthetic, state-of-the-art equipment and Scandinavian inspired design.

The Oakville cafe will feature a range of espresso and brew options, Pilot Cold Brew™ on tap, rotating seasonal drinks, brewing equipment and retail items, and a growing menu of baked goods made fresh daily.

The Grand Opening of the Oakville location is set for Monday, June 6. Store hours will be 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Monday to Wednesday, 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Thursday and Friday, and 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
