Inside Starbucks Mount Pleasant Reserve Bar
Specialty coffee companies and professionals in Canada have a new industry resource with the recent formation of the Canadian chapter of Specialty Coffee Association.
Soft Opening at Nemesis Coffee
When Starbucks opened their flagship roastery and tasting room in Seattle as a massive 15,000 square feet Disneyland for coffee it was easy to see people drawn in just to see the new tourist attraction. But how does that translate on a local level opening up a Reserve Bar in the corner of an albeit nicely renovated Starbucks while still keeping the existing "Classics" menu customers happy.
Inside Agro Roasters
Nemesis Coffee launched their new multi-roaster cafe with a two-week soft opening to meet their new neighbours and introduce them to their coffee, food and hospitality.
Opening Week at Musette Caffè
Agro Roasters went through some big changes last year with new owners taking over the business and making the decision to close the cafe for a few months for extensive renovations of the space before re-opening last summer.
Brews & Beats with Coffee Potluck
Vancouver cyclists have their home base back for coffee and hang out after a ride with Musette Caffè re-opening their cafe next to the Burrard Street bicycle lane.
Opening Week at Matchstick Coffee Riley Park
Coffee Potluck took YVR by storm again earlier this December with a two-night pop-up: Brews & Beats. A curated experience featuring coffee-inspired cocktails and local culinary talent, all tied together with beats mixed live by DJs.
Opening Week at Bows X Arrows Coffee
Matchstick Coffee has a beautiful new home in Riley Park and while keeping elements from their two other cafes it was nice to see the interior take inspiration from Japanese and Scandinavian design.
