CALGARY, AB, Nov. 22, 2022 /CNW/ – Good Earth Coffeehouse (Good Earth) has opened its first location with Indigo at Chapters inside CF Chinook Centre. The newest Good Earth Coffeehouse will provide customers a gathering place to enjoy ethically sourced coffee and fresh, wholesome food as they enjoy their shopping experience.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with Indigo and having started in Calgary it’s a celebratory moment for our first retailer coffeehouse to open its doors in Calgary,” says Nan Eskenazi, founder of Good Earth Coffeehouse.
The community centered coffeehouse is proud to be locally owned and operated offering hand crafted drinks created from a selection of Rainforest Alliance Certified, Organic, Fairtrade and Direct Trade coffees.
