Black Pearl Coffee Over the years I have found black Pearl to be a supplier that provides great coffee and fantastic service. They are continuously striving to provide the best coffee to Manitobans. I purchase their café Femino coffee as it comes from a women's co-op in Peru that creates quality coffee and quality of life for their members.

The packaging of their product is very attractive and looks amazing in gift baskets. Their business also supports farmers in africa by purchasing the hibiscus from them and improving their quality of life. John Boy Farms The farm itself has a rich history in Manitoba – it was established in 1879. In 2011 the owners purchased apple Junction and have continued the business of pressing apples to make premium fresh apple cider.
