One of our signature blends, Privateer Dark is the epitome of balance in a dark roast, featuring coffees from the Americas, East Africa, and Indonesia, representing the three great growing regions for specialty coffee in the world. Pulling the complex, sweet notes from its Ethiopian component, deep and heavy flavours from the coffees of Sumatra, and the full-forced balance of it’s Colombian portion, the resulting cup is one that will hit all corners of your tongue, that can be enjoyed at any time of day.
Reunion Island Coffee was founded in 1995. Its president, Peter Pesce, is a past Chairman of the Coffee Association of Canada and has played a key role in the development of the national specialty coffee market. In a recent feature article, the Toronto Star referred to Peter as “reputedly the best ‘cupper’ in Canada… Not only is Pesce a cupper (taster) par excellence, he is a walking encyclopedia of coffee facts, figures and esoterica.”
Peter’s reputation is the result of over three decades of experience in sourcing, blending and roasting coffee for the high-end foodservice market. Building on this foundation, Reunion Island has expanded to serve the unique needs of hotel, retail and office coffee service operators.
