Revolver Coffee Vancouver Gastown is one of those hipster hang out places in Gastown for the serious caffeine lovers. Located on Cambie Street across from Meat and Bread, the Giannakos brothers from Café Crema in West Vancouver, brings you a sexy coffee house focusing on a seasonal coffee menu from roasters around the world. The menu is simple, minimalistic with about ten items only focusing on coffee. The idea is not to distract you with fancy pastries to conceal the brew.
Decor is minimalistic with an simple down to earth vibe of open kitchen / open bar concept and wooden bench seats along with counter seats right by the window. The transparency design of enjoying your individually brewed coffee on the bar top in a laboratory type bar.
There is a rustic vintage vibe to the whole environment – exposed plumping, brick walls, reclaimed wood, and an old school Pioneer record player AKAI amplifier. The way music used to play. Something my dad still prefers over digital. There is more heart and soul.
Chris and John Giannakos brings you the ultimate coffee experiences with Siphon, Aeropress, Chemex. Espresso. Their flight brew woos you seductively because you are engaged in somewhat of a blind tasting. Why be limited of where the coffee beans come in determining what your palate prefers? There is a certain madness that comes to the formulation of the brew – timers, ratios, scales. I have so much more to learn.
Guatemala Ritual, Kenya P&S, Honduras Ritual: It’s somewhat hard to give you a review of their coffee because the coffee that you enjoy today may not be offered the following week. Keeps you on your toes, sorta. But to tell you, the three brews tested were somewhat acidic and a tad too juicy and complex for me. I prefer the earthy nutty chocolate textures. Even a dark roast would be ideal. Then again this is just personal preferences. This summer Revolver Coffee packaged their freshly branded brewed in-house Cold Brew for summer in a quintessentially attractive travelling size flask bottle. Drink it on the rocks or as is.
Latte – Strong. But still too acidic.
