Matchstick Coffee Roasters is a specialty coffee bar and roastery in East Vancouver. Also offering freshly baked pastries, treats and sandwiches.
I am a big fan of Matchstick, I wish it was in my neighbourhood!
I have had americanos and cappucinos and both were expertly made and delicious. The space is light, open and airy and the vibe is friendly and relaxed. It's actually the first coffee shop in a long time I've stayed at long enough to order a second coffee! I recently ordered a sandwich while I was there and it was fantastic! Smoked turkey with brie and roasted brussel sprouts...yum!
I was eagerly anticipating a visit to Matchstick. I was not disappointed. The smoked meat sandwich was very good, but I was much more interested in the coffee. I'd gladly drive back in to Vancouver for another cup. It was a fantastic brew. Love the pour over Chemex/Koava filter method - great roast (currently serving Phil + Sebastian outvoc Calgary while they get their own roaster up and running), great brew, great cup of coffee. A trip to Matchstick will not disappoint, and a seat a their long wooden table is worth the visit. Annie, Spencer and company have a good thing going. Looking forward to their first batch of house roasted beans. I'll be there, don't worry.
