One of our Top 10 Roasters of 2023 quietly opened a new coffee bar last week. Here’s everything I know so far. If you’re one of the many folks who have been warmly invited (read: heartlessly forced) to return to the office and abandon your ketchup stained WFH onesie, you understand the struggle. Could there ever be incentive enough to put on a large shoulder padded power suit and re-enter the daily grind of Wall Dunsmuir Street? How about a brand-new all-day specialty coffee shop, right inside the building? Enter FUNK Coffee Bar, the latest from House of Funk and a sight for the sore eyes of t ..read more

Well hello there – you’ve made it to my guide on how to make pour over coffee.

Anyway… That guy was making something called pour over coffee. It’s my favourite type of brew method and this is, quite frankly, an insanely long blog post about it.

The 10 Best Coffee Shops in Vancouver 2023 Before we get started on the list of the best coffee shops in Vancouver 2023 I have a task for you for the next year.

You know, this is why people stopped inviting you to parties. Anyway… I challenge you to do one nice thing each month for a barista. They’ve had a shitty few years, with an uptick of entitled dingbats hassling a lot of them. So I want you to make their lives nicer. Ex ..read more
