ABOUT EASTVAN ROASTERS

42

East Van Roasters is a bean-to-bar chocolate shop, coffee roaster and bakery that opened in April 2013. Our café is situated in the historic Rainier Hotel and has a warm and relaxing environment where you can watch parts of the chocolate making process happening in the roasting room or the chocolate lab. We love making chocolate and having a direct connection to the farmers that grow and harvest the raw cacao that we use. Chocolate making is a multi-step, multi-location process that we jump into once the dried beans arrive at our shop. We sort the beans, roast and winnow (remove the shells), grind and conche (refine) small batches of chocolate which we temper and make into chocolate bars or confections.

We are a social enterprise program of the PHS Community Services Society that provides training and employment opportunities to women living in the DTES. We are passionate about achieving the very highest levels of culinary excellence and customer service, and we invite you to come down and try our chocolate and coffee. For more information about our program please visit us online at www.eastvanroasters.com
