Bean Around The World

Today, Bean offers nearly 26 varietals, far more than most coffee companies. And, those beans are hand-roasted (in BATW’s North Shore roastery) in old-world, cast-iron coffee roasters—by sight, sound, and smell. “Our roasting is artisanal. No computers, no automation. Just experience and dedication.”

It’s a pursuit of passion that has endured for a quarter century despite a ceaseless cycle of coffee fads and a seemingly insurmountable competition from multi-national retailers. But, at the end of the day, or perhaps more accurately, early in the morning, it’s that first cup of coffee that makes it all worthwhile.

Today, there are two dozen independent BATW shops in BC, each with its own character, each serving its community the great coffees BATW has become known for, such as the popular Marine blend, Bean’s signature dark roast, which goes back to the very first location in West Vancouver, 25 years ago.
