The Soul of Espressotec - Great Coffee
The soul of Espressotec has always been our premium home and commercial coffee equipment. We’re proud to serve our café and home barista partners and to have grown along with Vancouver’s thriving coffee culture. But the soul of Espressotec will always be great coffee because, without it, the equipment won't work.
The mainstay at Espressotec is our 9 Bar coffee, first introduced at the demand of our customers almost 20 years ago after trying samples in-store. A carefully curated and private blend, one sip will transport you to the birthplace of espresso, the Italian cafe. Emitting notes of caramel and chocolate, all covered in a thick layer of beautiful crema, you'll quickly learn why the 9Bar espresso is our best-selling coffee 20 years later.
We also carry Café D’arte. They're a leading family-owned roastery out of the Seattle area, bringing Italian tradition and flavour to North America. We have Caffe Darte's full line of espresso and drip coffee blends. From the northern Italian smoky and rich Taormina blend to the smooth and sweet flavours of the southern Italian Firenze, we're sure to have a coffee you'll love. Old world charm meets new world techniques in every bag, freshly roasted and delivered weekly.
But we don’t stop there.
Make your way to the southwest corner of our showroom and meet Roaster Central! Choose from up to 40 different coffees, which we'll brew into tasting flights, for only the cost of a donation to Lookout Society. Our knowledgeable staff is here to answer any questions and provide recommendations and education to help you find a coffee you’ll love. We aim to showcase the talent and skill of Canadian roasters while providing you with a location where you can get unparalleled variety, and we can't wait to see you in our store to try it all.
Can't make it in? Worry not; 9bar, Roaster Central, and Caffe D’arte are ALL available online, and we ship Canada-wide. Phone in to ask for recommendations or use our website categories and get your perfect bag delivered all without ever leaving your house
