The GOODS from East Van Roasters
Vancouver, BC | East Van Roasters (319 Carrall St., Vancouver) Father’s Day chocolate release includes two new collaborations plus returning favourite, Dad’s Breakfast. With dad in mind, East Van Roasters created unique fresh bars and inclusion bars celebrating robust and distinct flavours of toasted nuts and buckwheat, black pepper, olive oil, espresso, coconut and puffed wheat.
This fully registered charity employs women living in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside who are looking to reenter the workforce, and who benefit from a flexible and supportive work environment where they learn to produce fine chocolate and coffee, and baked goods. Father’s Day gifts from East Van Roasters support this social enterprise and the work they do to remove barriers for women in the community.
