My first coffee t-shirt (from 1986 no less) had a picture of Tarzan swinging from a vine with a coffee cup in his hand.

The caption: Drink your Java, it's a jungle out there!

Wiser words never existed!

The truth is - today it is every bit as difficult to find those precious perfect beans for the ideal cup (or shot of espresso)

Living on the West coast of North America (in Victoria), I have a fabulous selection of great fresh roasted coffees. It is the perfect world.

Unfortunately, this condition does not exist in too many urban (or rural) locations.

Tell us your story... while I tell you mine.

Then head over to The Elysian Room - 5th and Burrard

Best beans, best coffee, best baristas

I second Colin's receommendation of the Elysian Room.

They are without a doubt the best in the city.

Their beans are roasted by Hines (ex-of Seattle) whose espesso is considered one of the best in North America.

Machiato Matthew is an excellent barista (his blog is fun, too) and Alistair IS da man
