Poppa Bean Coffee Roastery
Paul Foster and Sarah Hatt
The Poppa Bean Coffee Roastery is the brain child of Paul Foster (with the help of his always supportive wife Sarah). Paul graduated from the University of Ottawa and his first office job brought him into direct contact with copious amounts of coffee. He noticed that his co-workers enjoyed similar consumption habits.
Paul soon started a coffee club, supplying his own coffee and roasting it in a hot-air popcorn popper, which gave him both the beginning and name of Poppa Bean.
