TREES COFFEE SOUTH GRANVILLE NOW OPEN
20TH SEPTEMBER 2016
A brand new Trees Organic Coffee & Roasting House is now open in the South Granville neighburhood. Opened as their fifth location in Vancouver, Trees Coffee South Granville is ideally situated at the corner of West Broadway and Fir Street, an easy hop to and from many of the art galleries, fashion boutiques, home decor shops and the iconic Stanley Industrial Alliance Stage. And their newest Vancouver cafe is set to be one of the best go-to hang-out coffee corners in the city with its warm European-style cafe, laid back and somewhat bohemian vibe, and warm hospitality, free wifi, and Trees’ signature line-up of organic coffee and other edible delights. It is the perfect place for meeting people or to just relax and let time pass while enjoying a great cup of coffee and good food.
Vancouver-based Trees Organic Coffee & Roasting House serves 100% organic coffee from single origin, fair trade beans that they roast themselves. Along with great tasting coffee, they offer some of Vancouver’s best cheesecake in eight decadent flavours, and a monthly feature, all handcrafted in-house from natural ingredients. Fresh house-made baked goods and delicious sandwiches, plus daily soups and other sweet to savoury options, and a good selection of teas and other drinks.
The collaborative duo behind Trees Coffee South Granville is Fiona Chen (Franchise owner) and Hoi-Sin Wee (Cafe Manager). Joining forces, they are bringing to life their mutual passion for managing a coffee shop. Fiona comes from a successful advertising/marketing background in China, while Hoi-Sin has extensive experience in the hospitality industry, particularly in hotel management. They’re most excited about being part of the Trees Coffee family, and sharing quality food and drinks that are dependably delicious paired with exceptional hospitality. Their goal is to offer a neighbourhood coffeehouse that provides a welcoming and relaxed ambiance for socializing or working.
The new 35 seater cafe boasts a cheerful, modern space that was inspired by a minimalist but abstract interpretation of Vancouver’s beautiful natural surroundings. Wood elements are at the forefront of this simple aesthetic approach to the interior’s design. Clean detailing, a sleek menu board and unique light installations are key features in what the cafe’s architect calls ‘minimal-modernist’ decor. With floor-to-ceiling windows, there’s also plenty of year-round natural light. A broad assortment of seating is available to everyone – from a cozy nook and a grand communal lounge table to an outdoor patio. With so many comfortable options, you can’t help but linger over your coffee.
In honouring trees, the centerpiece of the cafe is a beautifully designed and sculptured 20 foot, concrete tree log counter. It is the creation of Trent Hutton from Wavestone Sculpture. Trent says that the log is one of the bolder and more playful contemporary designs that he has worked on. The tree counter was nature-inspired by the multitude of logs resting on Vancouver’s beaches. It was hand sculpted on-location out of concrete, then textured, polished and painted. You’ll notice the ends of the log showcase a realistic saw cut design.
For 20 years, Trees Organic Coffee has been serving up organic coffee, cheesecake and other edible treats and now they’re excited to offer a fresh, new cafe on South Granville. Whether you live in the neighbourhood or you are visiting, Trees Coffee looks forward to serving you at their newest coffeehouse.
