Revolver elevated Vancouver’s coffee scene to world-class heights when it opened in the historic, cobbled streets of the Gastown neighborhood in 2011. It continues to brew each serving with scientific attention to detail, showcasing a revolving menu of beans from leading roasters. As with other cafés on this list, the coffee here is best experienced in its purest form – black and unmarred by milk, sugar or pumpkin spice. Revolver emphasizes this point by placing its goose-necked Seraphim single-serving brewers front and center. Baristas program the machines to deliver water with precise timing, volume, and temperature-control to beans with grind sizes tailored for each bean type. Revolver leaves no variable unmeasured to craft its finely tuned coffees.
