In a fast-paced world, people seem to lose sight of the little things in life. This is exactly why Rod and Deanna began the Duck Mountain Coffee Roasting Company- to bring back the old-fashioned, slowed down, coffee experience.

Like wine, coffee comes in a variety of flavours depending on the roasting methods and bean origins. Rod and Deanna have re-introduced the traditional, slowed down coffee experience to the local community with their freshly roasted coffee beans to remind people why they fell in love with the their morning cup of joe. 

Deanna and Rod admired the process of coffee roasting during their mentorship in Banff, and wanted to create an opportunity for the Saskatchewan market to have access to traditional coffee. They wanted to re-introduce simplicity and beauty to the modern urban life; which is why they chose to name their brand “Duck Mountain”. Deanna and Rod wanted to combine the hustle of city life with the old-fashioned, unchanging environment Duck Mountain presents.

Duck Mountain ensures freshness by roasting in small quantities weekly. They currently offer two types of beans to the RFM community: the Indonesian Organic Timor bean and the Brazilian Yellow Bourbon Bean. The Timor bean is best when roasted to a medium, while the Yellow Bourbon is offered in a Medium and Dark roast.

Get your hands on Duck Mountain Coffee through the RFM Online Store, as well as at many Saturday Open-Air Markets!
