Getting your java fix is becoming much more than just a ritual to help you get to the office, or to help you past the dreaded 3pm work slump. Sipping on a good cup of coffee is becoming an experience that people take seriously...very seriously. Don't be annoyed by the Starbucks on every corner, there are loads of very high quality coffee shops scattered around Vancouver, with many more opening up (thirteen new shops opened in Vancouver in 2018).
