The Artery Community Roasters is a roastery in Ottawa hiring people living with disabilities, paying a living wage and building a culture of respect.
In Artery’s own words: “We love two things at The Artery Community Roasters, helping people living with disabilities find worthwhile employment, and freshly roasted speciality coffee. Oh, and we also love pizza, our dog Artie and Seinfeld, but mostly helping the community and roasting some really great coffee.”
All the employees roasting and packaging Artery coffee are people living with disabilities. Artery’s main mission is to provide stable employment and work experience, paid at a living wage, for people living with disabilities. Wages start at $18.60 an hour, increase steadily, and we are working towards providing full-time employment with full benefits to as many people living with various disabilities as they can.
We’re glad to have The Artery Community Roasters on team Better Way Alliance!
