The Beanstock Coffee Festival took place yesterday in Railtown and the event showcased the best independent micro-roasters and celebrate third wave coffee culture. The event also featured educational sessions from industry professionals, live demos, *unlimited coffee sampling*, and a curated market to purchase equipment and coffee to take home.
Created by an independent group of industry professionals from the coffee community, Beanstock offers samples from 30 of the city’s best micro-roasters, including Agro, Pallet and more, as well as the opportunity to meet the creators and learn more about third wave coffee culture. The festival also features Vancouver’s best artisanal food vendors, coffee-based cocktails, craft beer, local wine and a pop-up brew shop. Friendly competitions between micro-roasters are scheduled throughout the day. Scroll to see more photos I took of the event:
