Canada’s First Coffee Week!

Canada’s First Coffee Week!

Most people know that I’ve worked in the coffee industry in Edmonton for a very long time, I’ve been a barsita in a chain store, I’ve owned and operated pretty cool cafes and I’ve supported cafes from the commercial side and last but no least I am a patron at cafes.

This must mean I love coffee, right?

I do love coffee, but I love how coffee acts as a facilitator more. Coffee facilitates connection, builds community, it creates conversation, it brings people together, be simply a drink or a total obsession.

Edmonton’s coffee community has grow by leaps and bounds in the last ten years at my last count I had over 50 independently locally owned and operated cafes in Edmonton, some I support regularly and other are new to me.

A few months ago I thought it would be a cool idea to bring a film to Edmonton that would explore the world of coffee, educate both those in the industry but also the coffee lover, for that idea I started to think about the beauty of bringing cafes together to cheer each other on as they are all so different but also to introduce the coffee consumers to what Edmonton coffee has to offer.

No other city in Canada has brought you coffee like this – March 2015. The week will kick off with a showing of A Film About Coffee… and that is about all i’m going to give away for now.
