Hi Colin, Robb,
I also bought some roasted Espresso beans at The Elysian Room, after reading glowing comments on this website about them. I like them very much.
No CoffeeCrew trip to Vancouver is complete without a trip to the Elysian Room. They brew the best cup of Clover coffee and are no slouch with espresso either.
Some other must visits in Vancouver include; Prado and JJ Bean on Commercial and, to a lesser extent, Cafe Artigiano.
Good to hear some of those green bean tips paid off. Excellent. Thanks for checking back in.
