While it may be tempting to disregard Vancouver’s influx of minimalist, succulent-ridden cafés as mere hipster havens, the third-wave coffee movement has produced some truly excellent independent roasters. To showcase the city’s best, the Beanstock Coffee Festival is bringing together independent micro-roasters for its inaugural event on November 26.
“Beanstock is our chance to show off our craft and connect with people who not only love a great cup of coffee but also care where it comes from,” says Dusty Smith of Agro Roasters, one of the participating local businesses.
Guests are invited to take part in interactive workshops, peruse a curated selection of coffee-making equipment, and of course, sample brews from 25 different micro-roasters including Pallet Coffee Roasters, Milano Coffee, and Lions Bay Coffee Company.
Should you find yourself craving something with a little more of a kick, a bar and lounge area will serve coffee-based cocktails, craft beer, and wine. A handful of artisanal food vendors will also be on site to ensure you have the perfect snack to accompany your beverage.
For coffee connoisseurs and amateur java-lovers alike, the Beanstock Coffee Festival is a buzz-worthy celebration.
The Beanstock Coffee Festival takes place November 26, 2017, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Railtown Warehouse 298 Alexander Street, Vancouver BC. Tickets available at beanstockfestival.coffee.
