Attention all coffee lovers – your caffeine fueled wishes have been granted! Vancouver will be getting its first ever Coffee Festival to celebrate the mighty coffee bean.

Beanstock Coffee Festival will be held for a single day on November 26, 2017 and will showcase the best local and independent micro-roasters to celebrate third wave coffee culture.

FYI: Third wave coffee is a movement to produce high-quality coffee. Think of it like an artisan product – similar to wine. Fun fact: there are over 1,500 aromatic and flavour compounds in coffee. Wine has less than half of that.

If you’d love nothing more than to savour a rich, delicious and locally roasted coffee, this could be the festival for you.

Beanstock Coffee Festival will be held in the bright and spacious Railtown warehouse, and will feature music, local food and drink selections, educational sessions from industry professionals, live demos, a marketplace, and…

unlimited coffee sampling.

Yes, you are invited to taste as much coffee as you can handle! But, lets be honest, it’s better to appreciate these sorts of things in small doses or your body may end up stuck in a vibrating caffeine buzz for the rest of the day.

There will be 25 micro roasters on hand at the festival brewing their own coffee right in front of you, giving you the chance to pick their brain and find out what exactly makes their coffee taste so magical.

Even if you don’t know anything about coffee and have been happily drinking Starbucks Lattes your whole life, this is a great opportunity to learn more about what makes a good coffee.

Also, if you get a little tired of sampling coffee, there will be local wine, beer and coffee focused cocktails available to purchase. There will also be local food and pastry vendors serving up fresh, bite-sized portions all day.
