Top-notch coffee is as plentiful as sandy beaches in Parksville Qualicum Beach.
Latte lovers rejoice! French Press Coffee Roasters won a silver medal at the Golden Bean, the world's largest coffee roasters competition, in the milk-based category. You can taste French Press coffee at cafes in Qualicum Beach and Coombs.
Plan your coffee tour with stops at Coyote Coffee, Creekmore Coffee, and Karma Coffee. All of which are local roasters offering different philosophies and flavours in your favourite cuppa.
Other notable cafes include the seasonal "Calfe" at Little Qualicum Cheeseworks that boasts the freshest lattes in BC due to serving milk from their own cows. Pacific Brimm and Serious Coffee are classic Parksville favourite meeting spots not only for coffee but also for meals and baking.
