Fresh roasted beans in Vancouver?
I have recently bought an espresso machine from craigslist and am loving it. I have been experimenting with lots of different beans and would like to get freshly roasted espresso beans. Any recommendations?
Thanks in advance!
49th Parallel - "Epic Espresso" You can get this at various places - not just at 49th's Cafe.
JJ Bean - "Espresso JJ" and "Espresso Nero"
EspressoTec's (Richmond) Espresso Blend
JJ Bean Coffee Roasters
3010 Main St, Vancouver, BC V5T, CA
49th Parallel Coffee Roasters
2152 W 4th Ave, Vancouver, BC V6K, CA
Highly recommend Milano - their roasting facility is at 156 west 8th and they have limited supplies of freshly roasted custom blends for espresso. Here you'll find their espresso "tasting bar" so you can sample before you buy. They also have a store (Turks) at 1276 commercial - but the roasting facility is the place to go for guaranteed fresh beans. I'm a coffee aficionado, home roaster, coffee-geek and this is the best I've come across in town and I've tried them all. Stumptown at Mr. Lees comes a close second...
