Commercial Drive has a new Coffee – It’s really good and at London Drugs!
A really good coffee from the hood, and once again, London Drugs was the first to get into supporting another locally roasted coffee!
Inspired by a first generation Canadian, Domenic Bruzzese. Dom’s family has been on The Drive since the early 1980’s serving East Van some of the best sandwiches in the city (maybe the Province) at La Grotta Del Formaggio as well as offering nice Italian imports to the eclectic folks on Commercial Drive.
I asked Dom the inspiration and he tells me he was just trying to find a coffee that was nice and easy to drink with little after taste and little acidity (which seems to be the rage today – I have no idea why). He wanted something that reminded him of the old days on The Drive. He teamed up with a couple of East Van roasters (one of them on The Drive) and created 4 nice offerings under the Commercial Drive Coffee Company Logo – CDCC.
London Drugs offers all of the following flavours in our stores now. An espresso, 2 mediums and a dark. They are called; The Drive (espresso), Grandview (medium roast), The Continental (medium roast) and Park Drive (dark roast). All in 300g bags for ultimate freshness and are all in bean format.
Inspired from living on The Drive in East Van! Give em a try, I think you will be pleased.
Nice job Dom.
Ciao for now @kootenayborn
