Beanstock Coffee Festival was created by a team of industry professionals committed to expanding public awareness of third wave coffee and local micro-roasters, while also advocating for a more sustainable future for coffee. Coffee is the world’s favourite beverage with more than 2.2 billion cups consumed around the world each day – but not every cup is created the same.

Particularly in recent years, third wave coffee – a movement towards high-quality, transparent and fair trade alternatives – has skyrocketed with specialty growers, traders and roasters uniting to improve each stage of production, from farming and processing techniques, to distributing the final product.

“Vancouver is widely considered North America’s epicentre for coffee culture, which is why we chose the city to host this year’s Beanstock Coffee Festival. The event allows us to pay homage to micro-roasters driving the movement to produce artisanal quality brew, while also providing important education about direct trade, single-origin and sustainably grown coffee.”
