Laughing Whale Coffee Roasters have been in operation since 2003. The company is located in the UNESCO heritage village of Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, which is a community of artists, shipbuilders, fisherfolk, and tradespeople and a legacy of community values and artisanship.

Laughing Whale fits this environment perfectly with its passion for providing carefully roasted and artfully blended coffees that are made in small batches to its customers. The owners of the company strive to make coffee a vehicle for change by giving back in coffee-producing countries as well as at home.

They also have a goal of making Laughing Whale the greenest coffee roaster in Atlantic Canada by using a state-of-the-art roaster, committing to organic principles, reducing carbon emissions, and supporting local food production.
