'The coffee community was the first thing that made me realise that you could specialise in any area and really geek out on it. We can celebrate and honour the story behind it'
Highlight: Elysian Coffee, Matchstick Coffee, oh and Korean & Japanese cafes! We talk Vancouver Culture

Annabelle, what’re you drinking & reading right now? George Howell Ethiopia & Omnivore’s Dilemma
This has been by far the most challenging video with a few hiccups along the way, but the hope is we can watch with a friend and talk about it.
This week we spoke with Annabelle, who got her start in coffee at Elysian Coffee. She has gone on to do amazing things in this and other cities! She has her fingers in a few pies, and has made so many friends along the way in both the coffee and food scene . We are excited because she brings and exuberant positive energy to the conversation no matter the situation and she has a great way of making things happen. Her next project with Here There Studio is a sold out sensory cinema of Spirited Away.
As part of the story of ‘coffee friends’, we wanted to talk about how the industry brings people together. This chat is a perfect example of someone who has had experience working with cafes and knows the geekiness but also ties passion and interest to the process of the story. I’ll let her tell it to you!
This year we are interested in growing our intellect and our drink repertoire, we are asking Coffeefriends what they are drinking and reading right now to help you discover what's out there.
