"You hold in your hand a coffee that has been grown, sourced, and roasted with an attention to detail that few can imagine. Why? Because we know it matters. From our humble beginnings in the roastery on wheels, we learned that only through passion and relentless commitment can you truly create something special. This commitment to a truly special product is our promise to you.

Whether your path involves mountain peaks or paintbrush streaks, the only route that matters is the route that matters to you.

We hope you enjoy our Alternate Route while you are living yours"

Roastery + Tasting Lab

In early 2021 we expanded our operations and moved into a location just beside the Edmonton International Airport that is now our Coffee Roastery and Tasting Room. We have a small coffee bar, a retail section as well as a beautiful, custom tasting room where we host tasting and brewing events. Be sure to check out our store hours & we look forward to seeing you soon!

About Us

Founded in 2017 in Leduc, Alberta, by partners Ian & Kellie Wahl, Alternate Route Coffee Co. is built on a foundation of passion, commitment, and partnership.

The passion to explore the world of coffee, challenge what we know, and push the boundaries on what we currently believe is possible, both in coffee and in life. A commitment to create a special product that honors the work of coffee producers and fairly compensates them for their efforts. We focus on building partnerships that extend beyond simple transactions, and instead focus on working together to achieve common goals, and creating a better life for those around us; if our partners are successful, we are successful.
