VIP Starbucks in Vancouver?

Do you know there is a “VIP” Starbucks in Vancouver?

Vancouver’s first Starbucks Reserve coffee bar

You may forget that you’re inside a global coffee chain when you step inside Mount Pleasant’s newly renovated Starbucks location (2980 Main Street).
The coffee giant recently converted its Main and 14th spot into Vancouver’s first experiential Starbucks Reserve coffee bar—an upscale and elevated establishment that drops the company’s signature dark green hue.
Customers will be greeted with brick walls, concrete floors, and plenty of wood elements that create a sleek but warm atmosphere.
The reserve bar features a six-foot-long oak bar top, accompanied by wooden stools that allow customers to watch the baristas work their magic in close proximity.
Caffeine-lovers can expect rare, small-lot Starbucks Reserve coffees handcrafted by baristas using special brewing techniques, including siphon, the Black Eagle, Clover brewer, ceramic pour-over, and Nitro Draft taps.

メインと14thにあるバンクーバー初のStarbucks Reserve coffee bar。レンガでできた壁、コンクリートの床、そして沢山の木のモチーフがありとても温かい雰囲気で出来ています。レザーブバーは6フィートのバーがあり、バリスタの魔法のような技術(siphon, the Black Eagle, Clover brewer, ceramic pour-over, and Nitro Draft taps.などといった特別な技術も!)を間近でみることが出来ます。チェーン店スターバックスを感じさせないスターバックスに是非足を運んでみては?
