“Propaganda Coffee” Getting Set To Open At 209 East Pender St. In Chinatown

IMG_8699

The evolution of Chinatown continues. The neighbourhood will soon land another specialty coffee joint. When it opens early in the new year, Propaganda Coffee at 209 East Pender St. will seat 30 and deliver a complete coffee experience in a modern space designed by Vivian Fung. The building – located just east of Main Street – housed a restaurant in the distant past. It was most recently a Chinese health food store, but the 1700 sqft space has stayed dormant for (if recollection serves) for well over a year.

Propaganda comes to us from local coffee fanatics William Wang and Winfield Yan. These guys take their coffee seriously, with Wang boasting years of experience in the local trade. He came up through the barista ranks at Caffe Artigiano before moving to Prado Cafe on The Drive to work with Sammy Piccolo. This is their first venture together.

Their operation will be similar to Revolver’s in Gastown, only instead of focusing on international roasters they’ll be exclusively sourcing from BC (think Timbertrain, Pallet, etc). Expect opening day in the first half of January.
