The third annual Beanstock Coffee Festival invites coffee lovers from Vancouver and beyond to convene on Granville Island and connect with local micro-roasters, sample some of the best craft java in Western Canada, and learn about the importance of socially responsible brew.
Beanstock Coffee Festival 2019 takes place at Performance Works on Granville Island (1218 Cartwright St) on November 2 & 3 between 9:00 am and 5:30 pm.
This year’s event will feature 30 independent micro-roasters, including Agro Coffee Roasters, Luna Coffee, Prototype Coffee, Pallet Coffee Roasters, and Rooftop Coffee Roasters.
Early bird tickets start at $25 each, and include two tokens that can be exchanged for 100-gram samples of roasted coffee.
VIP Weekend Passes cost $75 and include unlimited priority entry access to both days of the festival; a Beanstock tote bag containing premium samples; and a festival branded ceramic cup for tastings and to take home.
Coffee is the world’s favourite beverage with more than 2.2 billion cups consumed around the world each day – but not every cup is created the same.
In recent years, third wave coffee – a movement towards high-quality, transparent and fair trade alternatives – has skyrocketed with speciality growers, traders and roasters uniting to improve each stage of production, from farming and processing techniques, to distributing the final product.
Beanstock Coffee Festival was created by a team of industry professionals committed to expanding public awareness of third wave coffee and local micro-roasters, while also advocating for a more sustainable future for coffee.
