For people who know me (and a few who don’t) it may be no surprise for me to say that I really do love coffee… I’m also an urban geographer and have a pretty nice passion for architecture and maps. So imagine my surprise when I stumbled onto a coffee shop in Vancouver recently and found not only one of the coolest coffee bars around and there was also a massive World wall map on display made out of some 20,000 nails!
Revolver Coffee serves up freshly made coffee by the pot (individual pots) from some of the finest roasted beans around (I actually had a pot made from beans roasted here in Victoria to my surprise). The place is eclectic, comfortable, and fun. There’s wifi for those who can stop themselves from looking around at the map and the awesome collection of books. Amazingly, the map was handmade by the owner and sons (I heard rumor the nails came from the structure that was previously in the location) and the map shows off the coffee growing regions all over the World – shown in copper. Truly a wonderful find and a must see! Read more about Revolver Coffee in this article or see more HERE on their website or follow them on Twitter @revolver_coffee
