There’s something intriguing about craftsmanship. Vancouver’s got coffee, we have lots of coffee, but few people have spent their time on the craft as opposed to the mass produced, got-to-have-it-now, angle.
So when Revolver launched, people were on it almost immediately. It’s not a chain, although let’s be honest, they could open several in Vancouver and make mad money. It’s an outpost with a simple commitment to the best coffee possible. I’m a coffee junkie, it takes a great deal to impress me but Revolver did the thing.
The various brew methods available and the rotating selection of coffee means that you’re going to get a cup made in front of you that should usually surpass anything the chain stores are pumping out.
No burnt tasting venti darks, here. But the best part may be the spot itself. Revolver’s gone transparent, so you can see everything being made it front of you. Visually the place is stunning and fits in with the design sensibilities of other local spots like Meat and Bread or the Pourhouse. If they keep it up, this could just be the future of Vancouver coffee right here.
