Coffee lovers and overly caffeinated students are in for a real treat this November! The Beanstock Coffee Festival is finally coming back to Vancouver and features an all-you-can-drink coffee experience from 30 independent micro-roasters across Western Canada.

The festival will feature local roasters like Roasters Rocanini Coffee Roasters, Smoking Gun Coffee, Agro Coffee, Pallet Coffee Roasters, and Timbertrain Coffee Roasters — just to name a few! 

The two-day festival is an immersive coffee experience that is open to coffee enthusiasts and newbies alike. Vancouver is famous for its independent, high-quality, ethically sourced coffee and the festival is a spirited celebration of Vancouver’s third-wave coffee revolution. 

The event, which is taking place at Performance Works on Granville Island, will kickstart the caffeinated celebrations on November. 2 at 9 a.m. and run until 5 p.m. on November. 3. 

Attendees can not only sample an unlimited amount of hand-made coffee from independent coffee specialists, but they can also learn more about the third wave coffee culture in Vancouver. The festival will also feature local food, music, free ceramic mugs, free coffee samples, beer and wine!

Tickets start off at $25 for the Early Bird ticket, or $30 for Regular Admission. Attendees can purchase specific coffee tasting sessions — 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., noon to 2:30 p.m., and 3 p.m. to 5:30 p.m — on both days of the festival.

The event also offers a VIP experience for $75 that allows unlimited access to the festival on both days, along with a free festival tote bag and premium coffee samples.

So before the caffeine runs out, grab tickets while you can! And don’t worry, the festival informs us that baristas and coffee experts won’t shame Starbucks coffee lovers.
