To promote Canadian interest in buying and drinking Bird Friendly® certified coffee, Totem Roasters partners with several Canadian non-profit organizations.

Some of the partners also sell the coffee directly at their locations.

The Coffee

Bags of Café AVIA and Café Le Nichoir contain 100% certified Bird Friendly®, Organic and Fair Trade coffee – no mixing – just 100% certified coffee

We offer:

3 formats: 342 g, 1 kg and 2.5 kg bags.

2 roasts: Medium and dark

2 grinds: Filter and espresso

Plus our Décaf option available in 1 kg bags

A 342 g bag of coffee with the Héritage Saint-Bernard logo contains the same coffee as a bag bearing the logo of Le Nichoir. The only difference is which organization receives a financial benefit from your purchase. It’s a great way to support your favourite non-profit with every sip.

Bird Friendly® certified coffee is produced in 11 countries. See the list of certified coffee farms. The country of origin is stamped on each bag and changes periodically. Availability determines which of the certified farms produce the beans used in Café Le Nichoir and Café AVIA. Learn more about Bird Friendly coffee.
