Vancouver Barista’s Top Café Picks in The Georgia Straight

Vancouver Barista top cafes in The Georgia Straight Best of Vancouver

Hi everybody,

Be sure to check out this week’s The Georgia Straight for their 21st annual Best of Vancouver issue. We’re touched they featured us as their 2016 Vancouver coffee industry insider: they asked us to list our top picks for where to find the best coffee in our amazing city.

The Straight is one of a handful of publications we consider quintessentially Vancouver, so we’re proud they’re including us in their company. A big thank you to their lovely writer Lucy Lau and photographer Amanda Siebert for making it all come together.

If you’ve been following us for while, we think you’ll already be familiar with some of our favourite picks. Thanks so much for all your support!

(Full online article was published today to their website, with a condensed version published in a paper copy tomorrow at newsstands.)
