Coffee punctuates life’s quietly meaningful moments: reaching for a favorite mug; a morning pause; the aroma drifting across the house; a Saturday in bed; a conversation with an old friend; the daily rituals that become part of our stories.
Canyon is inspired by savoring life’s details through the coffee we drink daily — made with exclusively single origin and certified organic beans, all roasted in Los Angeles. Deliciously smooth, perfectly balanced, and purposefully versatile; for brewing whichever way you like, whenever you want it.
We started Canyon in 2016 from our LA apartment — inspired by a love of exploration and experiences that remind us to live from a place of wonder, openness, and possibility.
As frequent travelers, visiting beautiful coffee shops became focal points of our trips. From morning cappuccinos in Paris cafes to after-dinner espressos in Rome, coffee offered a shared lens for experiencing new places. At home in Beachwood Canyon, making coffee for each other was a treasured ritual, adding a rhythm to the busyness of life.
Over time, we became our friends’ go-to coffee resource, fielding questions on where to find the best beans, how to make a pour over, or where to get a decent cup in a random town. Inspired to turn our passion into something that could be tangibly shared (and with our collective experience working in coffee shops and with independent businesses), we partnered with James—a friend and coffee roaster—and Canyon was born.
Starting from neighborhood pop-ups and selling coffee to our favorite LA boutiques, Canyon organically evolved from pulling espresso on weekends to having our coffees served in cafes, shops, offices, markets, and hotels across the US. At every step, we’ve intentionally grown Canyon based on our values — sourcing the highest quality, organic beans available; developing long-term relationships with our community, our farms, and our wholesale partners; and sharing resources, tools, and education on how to brew delicious coffee every day. Today you’ll find Canyon in hundreds of locations around the world, and in our own neighborhood shop.
On any day, you might find us brewing a big pot of Canyon on an early morning with our son…or making instant coffee while camping from the back of our car…or taking the time for a Chemex on a slow Saturday breakfast with friends. We believe in rituals that resonate with wherever you find yourself — and hope to inspire moments of connection through coffee.
Ally & Casey
We consider the long view in everything – consciously making decisions with an awareness of how our business can have the most net-positive economic, social, and environmental impact possible. Everything from the sourcing of our coffees to our packaging is considered mindfully. We work to establish long-term, mutually beneficial relationships with our farms, partners, and collaborators. With our wholesale partners we often help to set up coffee programs for success by selecting equipment, mapping out coffee setups, and training teams. As an independent business, we deliberately keep our team small and operations local, keeping our focus on the wellbeing of our team rather than on growth for growth’s sake.
