Revolver Coffee & Tea Cafe Vancouver Review
Find out if Vancouver’s best-known coffee shop is more than just hype.
Hailed by many coffee lovers as possibly the most famous coffee shop in town, Revolver is popular for the right reasons: great coffee, beautiful ambiance (like AnnaLena Diner), and excellent baristas. Not every well known coffee shop can say the same thing about themselves, but the Revolver Vancouver cafe is actually highly recommended by locals who are serious about their coffee.
It might sound cliche, especially for a hip and famous coffee place, but Revolver is known to serve the best-tasting brews. Their weekly menu is cupped or evaluated through the use of industry-standard score sheets, guaranteeing that they will always please and excite even the pickiest coffee drinkers.
This Gastown classic is also loved for its wide selection of beans and brewing methods. They’re known to work with roasters who visit the place of origin of their beans. This allows them to get to know the products better and explore more options.
As for their brewing methods, they offer more than dozens of ways to get the job done. So even if you’re very particular about your cup of coffee, they might just be able to tickle your fancy.
Aside from being friendly, the staff is also very knowledgeable about coffee. Again, not every popular coffee shop can say the same thing. This further guarantees that they know what they’re doing and that you’ll be getting a good cup of coffee from your visit.
Revolver’s menu is also as varied as you’d expect from someone who knows coffee really well. Their Tasting Flight (three coffees brewed one way) and Brew Flight (one coffee brewed three ways) are some of their most notable menu items. Their raspberry coffee cake is highly recommended by many too.
