2% Jazz Coffee began as an outdoor kiosk in 1996, quickly becoming a fixture in the community, renowned for great coffee and character. After years battling the elements on the street, we decided to move indoors, opening a cafe mere feet from where the kiosk was parked for so long. In 2006, we began roasting beans, allowing for full control over our coffee program.
In 2012, the Roastery was established in the vibrant heart of the redeveloping Hudson district, continuing our longstanding tradition of community involvement and local engagement.
We are proud to play a significant roll in shaping the coffee industry in Victoria through innovation, education, and dedication. We’re excited to be involved in your next coffee experience!
The motivation behind 2% Jazz Coffee is simple: provide uncompromising quality that is accessible to all.
We are a speciality coffee roasting company aiming to bring to people focused and exceptional service.
2%Jazz Espresso is designed to be balanced, sweet, and smooth, and is inspired by the great coffeehouses of the pacific northwest that blazed a trail for the industry today. A blend of South American and Indonesian coffee, from our house to yours.
Hudson, our darkest offering, is a people pleaser. Warm and roasty with lots of baker’s chocolate and a long smooth finish, this is rainy day and a notebook coffee. Old friends and new stories coffee. Before you reach for the cream, try it black and see why so many others have made the switch.
Death before decaf? Then you haven’t tried ours! South American and Ethiopian coffee decaffeinated in Burnaby using the Swiss Water process, our decaf exhibits a dry fruity character and a clean finish to satisfy even the most discerning customer – even right before bed.
So much coffee in the world, and so little time! How do you try them all? Look no further, 2%Jazz’s Single Origin Coffee program brings you beautiful coffee from around the world without you having to lift a finger.
Part of keeping it real is staying on the edge; we’re constantly working to innovate as a small-scale coffee business. That’s why we’ve found a way to bring affordable, compostable, custom cups to Victoria coffee shops.
BC’s capital city is full of coffee drinkers and their vessel of choice…? The take-out cup. If you stacked the cups our customers have gone through end-to-end they’d reach to space and back! We wanted a greener alternative, but custom-printed cups (let alone biodegradable ones) are typically unattainable for small shops due to the large production volumes required. Then we found Green Century, a BC company making exceptional compostable cups, so we set to work to broker a new deal.
The result? An affordable, low-impact, compostable, custom-printed cup that we can be proud of. The bonus? Since trailblazing this one-of-a-kind arrangement, the opportunity is open to all independent coffee shops across the nation.
We strive to capture the hard work that goes into a great product through ethically sourced beans, our craft roaster, and excellent service.
