Spotted Horse,” Round Lake Roaster's Coffee Blends is roasted here on the White Earth Reservation.
“This coffee company is something that our family takes pride in. We love coffee. We also love our water and lakes in the world, and find that we are in a pitched battle over a set of Koch Bros. and Enbridge pipelines intended to head across the heart of our ricing territory to Lake Superior (Gichi Gummi). We join with others around the world opposing extreme fossil fuels and these pipelines. Join us and enjoy a cup of organic “fair trade“ coffee to celebrate this work. We love water not oil.” Winona LaDuke, founder of Spotted Horse - Rez Roasted Coffee blends Company.
As part of this vision, "Spotted Horse," Round Lake Roaster's Coffees by Winona LaDuke blends created this special blend for our “Pipeline Fighters.”

Our "Water Protector's" Spotted Horse coffee blend by Winona LaDuke is fair trade and organic coffee roasted here on the White Earth Reservation in NW Minnesota. Beans are specially selected and blended from El Salvador, Chiapas and Costa Rican. Beans are farmed and produced by women.
We have always been water protectors. Once you could drink all of the water here, but the folly of the Wiindigo Economy has changed that. We continue to protect our water- from mining, logging and nowthe Enbridge pipelines and proposed mines . Over the past four years we have joined with other Indigenous allies and local citizens to oppose the extreme mining extractions in our region and the extreme pipeline proposals- whether Enbridge, with new lines proposed for our wild rice territory, or Trans Canada and the Keystone Pipeline; we continue our resistance.

Votan’s (NSRGNTS) painting is a huge mural in downtown Duluth. Our Water Protector is an Anishinaabe woman, who is looking over the greatest of the lakes-Gichi Gummi. She is facing with prayer and the power of the Natural world, the greed of the Wiindigo, the fossil fuel industry, mining and lumber barons. She is powerful.
”Spotted Horse,” Coffee Blends is roasted here on the White Earth Reservation. We featured beans from Indigenous communities around the world and we feature fair trade and organic coffees. The result is a truly distinct line of rich and diversely flavored coffees, small batch roasted, balanced and full bodied. We roast in the midst of our trees and lakes, and we do it because we love good coffee, and did not want to travel a hundred miles for a good roaster. We are also one of few Native American roasters on the continent, meaning that this coffee comes from Indigenous communities, and is roasted and packaged by our own people here, all of us intending to create exceptional offerings and sustainable economies for our people. We’ve served our community for a decade, and now, we would like to serve you.
We are able to provide varietal roasts, but specialize in blends, which reflect our community and history. Hole in the Day, Louis Riel, Winona ‘s Breakfast Blend and Horse Riders Delight, all coffees which are rich, not only in beans and flavor, but are also named after our Ojibwe people, leaders and tell of our rich history and culture as a people. These are our initial offerings, and in that, provide an amazing coffee, and an opportunity to learn about our people, history and work to defend our land through the generations.
