Golden Gecko Coffee was created by Jake Healy, an Australian who came to Canada searching for cold weather and coffee that excited him. He certainly found the weather but was still in search of the perfect cup! Jake took his coffee knowledge from back home and began roasting his own beans, selling at local farmer’s markets across Toronto’s west end. He’s learned about creating delicious specialty items and finding a space to engage with a fantastic community throughout the years.
The Golden Gecko award was a competition that Jake won while in Australia. Part of a committed team, he helped lead a global organization to win a prestigious environmental award focussed on sustainability in remote regions of the country. The commitment to sustainability and support of local organizations has remained a core value for Jake and he has instilled it into everything he does with Golden Gecko Coffee.
