Coffee For Canadians

February 19, 2013

Starbucks-208x300Earlier this year I noticed that Starbucks had begun advertizing a coffee just for Canadians.  Well, that wasn’t a new idea, as I discovered.

Going through some old “Highland Echo” editions yesterday, I found a notice by Torrefazione Coleira — a coffee shop which had just opened on Commercial Drive where JJ Bean is today.

On 22nd April 1971, they announced that “we are now making a special blend of coffee just for Canadian people.”

Commercial Drive — forty years ahead of Seattle!
