Any Starbucks in Van can't be beat. I know some people like to poo-poo them, but they are tops. And the best staff too ... most of the time.


Give me a break.
You obviously have not been to JJ Bean, Artigiano, Elysian Room, Prado, etc etc etc etc..

You need need to get out more.

Best Coffee I found and live buy is Passalacqua a company in CT called Caffe Italia Enterprises sells it. Only ones in fact. This coffee has a dark chocolate after taste and is imported straight from Italy. Definitely 2 thumbs up. Try it once you won't go back to anything else.

I find coffee imported from anywhere -- generally stale. Some people like stale coffee - like a neighbor of mine who gets coffee from all over the World. It is always bad-ass stale and I think he sees the \"staleness\" as a flavor attribute.

Each to their own I guess.

Remember: The Fresh Coffee is the Best Coffee!

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

Best beans, best coffee, best baristas

Say hello to Alistair - He da man.


I agree that Elysian room is an excellent shop, but it does not meet the criteria of \"roasted on site\". Alistair gets his beans from 49th Parallel.
