The coffee thread has me thinking about beans...my favorite place for a coffee is my living room, frankly!
My family has been buying from Yoka's on west Broadway forever, I love that place, it's an anarchronism (no bank cards, imagine!) but it's the real thing complete with massive coffee roaster and lots of variety.
That being said, it's a long drive. When I am desperate I will find Kicking horse at the grocery store, and even found Saltspring Coffee at Costco of all places.
I tend to like the very dark and strong, french and espresso types, but am open to suggestions.
Bring it on, chowies!
