The Story

When Alyssa + Mat met it was clear they shared a love for two things: Coffee and the BC coast.
Float brings together the best of both worlds. From our 34ft. sailboat we roast, brew and serve delicious espresso, coffee and cold brew. We sail from bay to bay and harbour to harbour bringing some of the world's best beans to you, afloat.

The Boat

Built in richmond BC in 1981, S.V. Rainbow is 34ft. pilothouse sloop. Her dual helm stations and beamy hull make for a comforatble year round coastal cruiser. Her simple rigging and old Volvo diesel allow her to travel up, down and around the many islands and fjords of the BC coast.

The Coffee

We roast all of our coffee onboard rainbow in custom built LPG drum roaster. Its small size and simple design allow us to roast anytime and anywhere, ensuring our beans are always fresh.

Checkout our selection of coffee on our coffee page.
