Coffee Love... The Drive Coffee Bar and The Commercial Drive Coffee Company

Happy Valentines Day...  

Why we started a coffee company...  Why we want you to join us to try our coffee at The Drive Coffee Bar at 1670 Commercial Drive in the Heart of East Vancouver's Little Italy!

We got together in early 2010 and decided that we were not as thrilled with where the coffee scene in Vancouver was headed as many in the city had taken us... It was pretty clear that the over roasted coffee in one famous multi-national was very popular and what was also very clear was that the roasting in Vancouver had headed toward an acidic/citric profile to be different from that big player. We liked neither approach...

We wanted to get back to the feelings and flavours that we all found while touring Europe. Similar flavours that you would have found on The Drive when the 1st European immigrants, mostly Italian, settled in Vancouver's Little Italy in the heart of East Van. We wanted that aroma and flavour that resonated throughout the coffee bars and homes of Europe. That coffee that inspired the discussions for change and betterment of people, that coffee that elicited debates in homes that could be heard down the street, that coffee that brought us together after a wonderful meal. We wanted a coffee that evoked those feelings of warmth or family and tradition.

Give us a try and let us know how we did. We would love to hear from you - good or bad - as we have always been, and will always be about the conversations that coffee inspires...

We are available at fine retailers across British Columbia and we are now available online across Canada on Amazon Canada.
