The Goods from JJ Bean
Vancouver, BC | This week JJ Bean honours their customers for over two decades and two cities’ worth of continued loyalty with its Anniversary Celebration, running Tuesday December 5th through Saturday December 9th.
Every season, Production Bakery Manager Julie-Melanie Trottier and her team bring new items onto the menu. This Tuesday you can try two new mouth-watering bakery creations for 50% off. The irresistible Apple Fritter Cruffin folds apples and cinnamon into JJ’s flaky butter croissant dough, finished with a decadent vanilla glaze. The addictively good Salted Caramel Crackle Cookie makes cookie fantasies come true with marshmallows, cornflakes, and toffee bits.
On Wednesday, every JJ Bean barista is on a mission to share the good news of coffee-focused traditional beverages: cappuccinos, macchiatos, and espressos are only $1.50.
JJ Bean’s world-famous, fan-favourite promotion runs from Thursday through Saturday this year, with a +30% bonus top-up on gift card purchases over $20.
Founded in East Vancouver in 1996, JJ Bean opened its first location west of the city on the University of British Columbia campus this summer. Inspired by the concept of cafes as the original universities, JJ Bean UBC is designed for communal and individual study with an expansive outdoor patio, mezzanine, alcoves, and bold, gallery lighting.
The coffee roaster continues to expand into new areas of Toronto as well. Now open at uptown Toronto’s vibrant Yonge & Eglinton intersection, JJ Bean Eglinton continues the company’s philosophy of local and fresh coffee and food. This is the fourth cafe to open in Toronto, and offers seasonal single-origin coffees and signature blends on French press and drip-filter options, as well as a host of classic espresso-forward beverages.
Coffee is roasted to order each day in Vancouver & Toronto, and each cafe makes its food offerings fresh every morning.

About JJ Bean
The Neate family has been roasting coffee in Vancouver for four generations. In 1996, John Neate Jr. (JJ) created a company of coffee lovers called JJ Bean.
We believe people have intrinsic value. For that reason, we seek to honour our coffee producers, our staff, and ultimately our customers by only serving the freshest coffee possible.
To this end, we source the highest quality green coffee and roast it in small batches daily, always guided by the same motto: the best taste wins.
