Ethiopia : Coffee of the week - the Ethiopian Duromina! Orchards, sunshine, the warm breeze... all these memories will flood back as you savour the Ethiopian Duromina. Your first taste will be of a sweet, juicy peach, with notes of black tea right behind. Taste of summer right there. You might want to swing on your porch after a cup of this one.

Ecuador : Coffee of the week - the Ecuador Piedra Encantada! This is a floral bouquet on the nose, with notes of jasmine, dried apricot, and cinnamon. According to local legend, the Piedra Encantada (Enchanted Stone) struck fear in the hearts of anyone who stumbled upon it. Imbued with an incredible power to grant wishes, it also blocked the path to protect a dark part of the city reserved for lovers’ trysts. Only a few cups left, don't miss out. Available at the East Van brew bar!

New cold brew delights at Platform 7!


Vegan? Delight Alert! Especially for you in P7!

You don't do dairy. Say no more. Stumptown mixed our life-affirming Cold Brew with the finest coconut cream from Sumatra, Indonesia for a dairy-free, vegan game changer. Coconut Cold Brew is made with three natural ingredients so separation is bound to happen. For a good time, shake it like you mean it.

Nitro Cold Brew Coffee in a pop!

Our cascading and creamy Nitro Cold Brew is now available in a pop top. Pour it like you mean it into a glass or drink it straight from the source.

Thank you to our great Clients again, staff members, partners, family and friends.

We’ re celebrating this week the completion of our Second year in East Van. We built a lot of great relationships, and we’re looking forward to strengthening them even further. Thanks for helping to make Platform 7 Coffee to its Third Year!

The past to years has been an endeavour and we are beyond grateful.

We would like to take this opportunity to remember those awesome moments; fun times and good people that have helped our cafe grow.

 

Success isn’t just given to everyone who wishes for it, so we know just how fortunate we are to be able to celebrate our 2-Year Anniversary this week. We owe a debt of gratitude to a lot of people. Those folks include but are not limited to: friends, family, clients, collaborators and last but not least – our benevolent souls/well wishers who’ve put so much into our company.

These folks aren’t just a blip or a faint memory that crosses the mind every once in a while, but rather, they are people we think about on a daily basis when brewing coffees, creating latte arts and working on our second location. So, thank you and know you’ve impacted us in ways we can’t even begin to explain. With Love P7
