Earlier 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!
haha, what really caught my attention about this post is the photograph. Canadians really do love their coffee! Especially in all of this chilly weather! :)
