Gary Jenner, Owner & Sales Manager
Nova Coffee completes 45 years in business on March 28, 2018! We are a family owned business and Gary has been involved since 1973 when he was in his final year of high school. His wife Karen started with us in 1987 and continues working with our bookkeeping. Three of their children are on their own now and their youngest, Andrew, remains at home. Andrew works one day a week with us at our new location in the Annapolis Valley and the rest of his time at Flower Cart Group in New Minas.
As we approach our fiftieth anniversary in 5 short years Gary had this to add, “I am keenly aware how important good coffee is to those of us who enjoy it daily. Great coffee and great service is the strength of our business. Specialty coffee continues to grow in Nova Scotia and with our move in 2017 to the Annapolis Valley we are preparing to take on a larger role. We have installed state of the art after burners to clean roast exhaust and cut emissions and we will soon have our new training room completed for espresso and coffee cupping. A new larger roaster is planned to keep up with our growing volume. Although we’ve gone through many changes Nova Coffee remains true to its roots. Expert advice for choosing the right equipment, proper training, premium quality coffee and store-door delivery. Read on to meet our staff and then give us a call. We’re ready to serve you!”
