Q&A Session 5: Mrs. Vancouver Coffee Snob
As any superhero will agree, you always need to have a sidekick. Someone that is awesome, but not quite as awesome as you, thus making you look better. Batman has Robin, The Fresh Prince has Jazzy Jeff and Satan has Donald Trump. So it shouldn’t surprise you to hear that Mrs. Vancouver Coffee Snob has a sidekick: me!
We catch up with her to talk about her favorite coffee blog, Vancouver’s most handsome coffee blogger and Emma Stone. Please meet the ever patient Mrs. Vancouver Coffee Snob.
Who are you and where are you from?
I’m Mrs. Vancouver Coffee Snob. Long story short, I’m British but you really can’t tell anymore, so let’s just call it Canadian. I’ve been living in Vancouver for the past seven years or so.
Tell us a little bit about how you became involved with the Vancouver Coffee Snob
Can’t I just say how much better his Instagram photography is since he met me?
Rumour has is that you are a fan of the drink ‘London Fog’. In your opinion where is the finest London Fog found in Vancouver?
Kahve. Even the latte art on their London Fog is ridiculously good.
@kahvevancouver is a stunning new(ish) coffee shop just over the Burrard bridge. The barista was upset that his art in this London Fog was not up to par but honestly you NEVER see art in these drinks and we thought it was great! The drink itself was amazing – the best London Fog I’ve ever had. #VancouverCoffeeSnob
You’re often dragged around to coffee shops with the Vancouver Coffee Snob, what have been some memorable stops on this awe inspiring journey?
Trying out new coffee shops has made me explore new parts of the city that I wouldn’t have gone to otherwise! The most memorable parts are really the people – the diversity of experiences and the reasons behind why different cafes have been started are really interesting. Also, I can remember every English muffin breakfast sandwich I’ve ever had – can’t get enough of those things.
Who has the best coffee blog on the internet?
Are there any other coffee blogs worth reading? Just kidding – The Little Black Coffee Cup is easily my favourite.
OK, fine, who is the most handsome coffee blogger in Vancouver?
Rumour has it that the Vancouver Coffee Snob has a birthday coming up soon. What are you getting him as a present and why is it a La Marzocco Linea Mini?
Ha – the funny thing is with birthdays for coffee snobs is that the last thing they want is anything to do with coffee, as it probably won’t be quite right. Yep, get ready for a mountain of socks and underpants.
Tell the readers something they probably don’t know about the Vancouver Coffee Snob
He’s become a hipster but won’t admit it: we’re talking scruffy beard, plaid shirts, stretchy sneakers and unashamedly climbing on chairs to get the perfect top-down shot of his coffee. He also just bought his first cardigan.
What is your favorite thing to eat with coffee?
Lots of butter with a little bit of croissant.
If you could pick one person dead or alive, real or fictional, to have coffee with, who would it be and why
Well, that’s pretty obvious…I’m pretty fond of the Vancouver Coffee Snob but if I had to pick someone else, Emma Stone. I think we’d be good friends.
Thanks very much to Mrs. Vancouver Coffee Snob for taking the time to answer honestly and candidly, no matter how wrong she may be at times.
