If you’re into summer and you like the beach, we’ve asked a few local cold brew makers to offer up their product for us to dabble in. What you will need, bring a cup, and as always a little bit of (coffee) cold brew to share with the group and come hang out on Spanish Banks with us.Read More
The Aviary is a jaw-droping-ly gorgeous co-work space where designers & architects congregate. They create an approachable space for the discourse of design and how we encounter it.
Coffee Potlucks exist to create discourse about approaching and learning about specialty coffee in Vancouver and bring community together.
We came, we conquered, we tasted.
Who's Coffee Potluck for?
If you’ve never ‘tasted’ coffee formally before or you're curious about what the fuss is all about, honestly this is for you. It’s a great way to see what the difference is between coffee and …. well, coffee. Not convinced? - just ask me.
For industry, it’s a way for people to come together in a relaxed space for conversation and taste coffees that might pass us by in the city had we not met together. There is strength in numbers!
For roasters, this is your chance to showcase your newest crop and exciting projects!
This month we tried a new format.
Instead of cupping, Espro brought the patented double micro-filter french press (or cafetiere) to brew a super clean coffee that we tasted in our own personal cups. We mingled, drank coffee and shared ideas.
Here are the some of the coffees we brewed.

Filters Twice, Like No Other
Under the hood you’ll find ESPRO’s patented double micro-filter, for the cleanest cup you can get. The two patent-pending filters are 9-12 times finer than a common French Press. They get beneath the grinds a nd filter twice, leaving all of the flavor and none of the grit. It’s so much more advanced than any other press on the market that many customers tell us it’s the last coffee maker they’ll ever buy. At least they saved the best for last.
