Located in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, 49th Parallel Coffee Roasters sources and roasts the world’s finest coffees. We choose our beans carefully, buying green coffee directly from farmers and co-ops to create relationships that extend far beyond the growing season. Our expert roasters take each coffee lot to its peak potential, grading and tasting until the flavour profile and subtle nuances of that particular bean are released. Coffee is seasonal, so our menu changes throughout the year to reflect the growing cycle and ensure every 49th Parallel customer experiences exceptional freshness and flavour from farm to cup.
In the summer of 2012, 49th Parallel launched Lucky’s Doughnuts, because, really, what goes better with coffee than a French Cruller, an Old Fashioned or an Apple Fritter? Our original recipes and seasonal creations continue to amaze customers with exciting and unexpected flavour combinations, taking doughnuts from the everyday to extraordinary. Lucky’s Doughnuts are made fresh from scratch throughout the day, using only the finest natural ingredients and are available exclusively at the 49th Parallel Cafés at 2902 Main Street, 2198 West 4th Ave. in Kitsilano and 689 Thurlow Street (Downtown).
