Roaster Central, Vancouver’s first specialty coffee tasting centre, will be launching on September 13 at 4 pm at Espressotec (1015 Clark Drive).

Patrons can taste a “full spectrum of coffees by donation at the customer’s discretion,” which means they’ll be able to try up to 40 different varieties of local and international beans.

There’s going to be a diverse range of complex flavour profiles to try here. Coffee lovers can expect blends from Ethiopia, Peru and Indonesia to name a few.

“The coffee-tasting experience can be as complex and satisfying as that of wine or scotch,” explains Reg James, owner of Espressotec. “But not everyone wants to dive in blindly and buy a full bag — or even a cup — of an unfamiliar coffee. Roaster Central provides an easy way for those who are new to specialty coffee to try some really interesting coffees without that upfront cost.”

Visitors who head to Roaster Central will also learn how to brew coffee using a pour-over method, and can expect Canadians brands like Pallet (Vancouver), Drumroaster (Cobble Hill), Chronicle (Calgary), Smoking Gun (Mission), Contrabean (Kitchener), East Van Roasters (Vancouver), Notch (Delta), Caffé D’arte (Seattle), Mogiana (Richmond) and many more.
