“Timbertrain Coffee Roasters” Set To Open Up On West Cordova St. In The Fall


A new cafe called Timbertrain Coffee Roasters is opening soon at 311 West Cordova (the old Dream boutique space in the heritage Petrina Block building across from Old Faithful). It’s owned by three young friends who love coffee and were looking for a change of career. They are Jeff Shin, an ex-Toyota salesman; Min Shin, a former currency/precious metals traderl; and Peter Kim, a former accountant with Deloitte & Touche. Their cafe will offer 16 seats, a small selection of pastries and coffee retail, plus coffee (using the Kalita method) and shots pulled from a La Marzocco Strada espresso machine. They’ll be using signature beans, which will be roasted at their own facility out in Langley, which – crossed fingers – should start production later this month. I can’t say much about the design at this point aside from the fact that they have the architects from Simcic + Uhrich on board (the folks who did Brassneck), and that their contractor is Harmony Pacific. Opening day is slated for some point this Fall (October at the earliest).
