Who is B & W?


So who is Black and White Coffee?


Black & White is a sweet little roastery located in the Cowichan Valley. Our aim, is to provide you with an amazing coffee experience time after time.


Black and White started as the dream of Cody and Nicole Smith who launched in March of 2012 and shortly after the launch, Cody won the 2012 BC Aeropress Championship at Revolver Coffee.

Black & White selected, roasted and supplied Ethiopian Koke-Aricha to Stewart McWilliam who competed in the finals of the 2013 Canadian Brewers Cup after winning his region, placing 4th in Canada.


In March 2017, Black & White was purchased by Jason Horn who has a great passion and desire for connecting fantastic people with dynamic coffee. Jason writes:

"Something special can happen over coffee...a romance may spark, life's goals can take shape, more time spent with the people we love. I want to help you accomplish more over coffee. Much thanks to Cody and Nicole Smith for pouring their heart and soul into Black & White over the last 5 years. I am honoured to follow in your footsteps and look forward to providing Black & White's customers exceptional coffee and personalized service for the years ahead."
