Canyon Coffee, founded by coffee-loving couple, Ally Walsh & Casey Wojtalewicz, is gaining major visibility across the SoCal coffee scene. Launched in 2016, the venture emerged from the couple’s love for the ritual of coffee wherever they traveled around the world. And with a focus on organic, fair trade beans and roasts that are made to be savored sans-creamer, it’s no surprise they are receiving a warm welcome in the community (their gorgeous Instagram doesn’t hurt either!).
