Since moving from Victoria last summer, I’ve been on a permanent hunt to find a coffee shop that can live up to the lofty standards set by Victoria’s Habit coffee. Of those I’ve tried in Vancouver thus far, I think Revolver in Gastown has come the closest. At Revolver every cup of coffee – both espresso and drip – is made individually from beans you’ve selected from their bean menu. They offer taste tests on a weekly basis and continually rotate their bean selection, adding to their exceptional customer experience. The decore, particularly a world map comprised of nails, silver for most of the world, copper for those coffee producing regions, is also an aesthetic highlight of the shop. The shop itself is a gorgeous gastown space with high ceilings, a 20 foot bar, and some well-crafted seating. As coffee shops in Vancouver go, for me Revolver scores high, I’d recommend it to anyone looking for a good cup of coffee.
