PHOTOGRAPHS FROM VANCOUVER CAFES
After spending stints working at cafes in Melbourne, Berlin and Vancouver; Eldric Kuzma has just wrapped up his first week on his new coffee project called Aubade Coffee.
Innocent Coffee is starting their last week operating their small two-storey outpost on 4th Avenue with plans to relocate to a new space nearby bringing in a stronger retail component to their business.
There are a few spaces in the city that would be interesting to imagine as a new cafe and the 33 Acres Brewing Co. tasting room was near the top of that list. So it was exciting to see 33 Acres Brewing stealthily announce their expanded coffee program earlier this year featuring a new custom Slayer espresso machine.
It's always great to see a new cafe open in the city and it's even better when they get so many things right off the bat. Gastown's Birds & Beets brings good food and a solid coffee program to the neighbourhood in style.
JJ Bean Coffee opened their 17th location in style with their new Cambie Village cafe and the space is already a personal favourite.
Taking their years of experience working in cafes around Vancouver and Victoria, Johannes and Kristina van Bommel van Vloten finally opened Oldhand Coffee in their hometown of Abbotsford at the end of February.
