Comments 163

The Commercial Drive Coffee Company popped onto my radar just a short time ago when they supplied the complimentary coffee at my London Drugs book signing event — and I’m very glad that they did. Roasted in East Vancouver, they have signature Vancouver-themed coffee styles that include:

  • The Drive Espresso: “A smooth, low acidity, European style blend. Great to drink as a short or long espresso. It will leave a great taste in your mouth.”
  • Grandview Medium Roast: “A medium roasted coffee blend with a smooth flavour that still carries a full bodied cup of coffee.”
  • The Continental Medium Roast: “A medium roast coffee, with history. To support local business on the drive, CDCC partnered up with Continental Coffee for this particular blend. Continental Coffee has been on the drive for over 30 years at 1806 Commercial Drive and is an essential part of the drive’s coffee culture.”
  • Park Drive Dark Roast: “A dark roast coffee blend full of body and flavour.”

Vancouver is one coffee-loving city so the Commercial Drive Coffee Company has offered to supply one lucky Miss604 reader with coffee for a year. They will be awarding 26 coupons that can each be redeemed for a bag of coffee at at London Drugs locations. That’s 2 bags of coffee a month! Here’s how you can enter to win:

    I am making my own DIY coffee centre in my house using a old hutch, repainting it, adding new coffee machine and Tassimo at Christmas time (asked Santa for a gift card to buy new machines!). I’ve spent months picking up items at thrift stores and such to make it vintage style, and having a year’s supply of Coffee, would be UNREAL for our family! We could probably afford a couple of days in a nice hotel in BC at the end of the year with all the money we would save. ๐Ÿ™‚ Happy Holidays, Rebecca. ๐Ÿ™‚
