Alfred Zagloul, better known online as Alfred Drinking Coffee, has become a recognizable, credible and super charismatic (don’t let his serious IG face fool you) guide to coffee in Vancouver. He even has his own limited edition roast with JJ Bean! An accountant by day, Alfred has an impressive pallet and an even more impressive passion for sharing his love for the bean and educating the masses.

We followed Alfred on a stimulating tour of three unique West End coffee shops.

D’oro Gelato & Caffe

The second leg of our tour took us to D’oro Gelato & Caffe, where old meets new to produce an elegant yet classic Italian café experience! This award-winning spot is known for producing fresh gelato in small batches but their coffee deserves equal recognition. The lattes, americanos, macchiatos, cappuccinos, espressos and affogatos here are made using artisan Seattle-based coffee roaster, Caffe Umbria!
