Our Story


Toucanet Coffee was started in 2001 by Helen Kalevas of Flagstaff, AZ.  Helen worked as an ornithologist with the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center doing bird and insect studies on a coffee farm in Chiapas, Mexico.  During this time she learned the importance of shade-grown coffee for the local bird population.  As an ornithologist and avid coffee drinker, she was interested and motivated to start selling the coffee as a hobby in 2001.  Soon after, the fair trade concept and Cafe Femenino entered the coffee scene.  The business grew from a box of coffee on a front porch with a money deposit box to a state-wide delivery business with national mail order service over the next 8 years. 


Toucanet Today...

The company strives to continue the founder's vision of providing quality shade-grown, fair-trade, organic coffee by sourcing from farms that support these values while maintaining strong business and customer relationships with those who similarly place importance on the quality and Eco-friendliness of the product they consume.
