Tradition & True Love
t the start, I never paid much attention to coffee even though I’ve known about it for a very long time. This all changed around 30 years ago, when it got rid of my migraines. Ever since then, I’ve dedicated thousands of hours studying everything I can around the sweet and aromatic world of coffee. I was obsessed! I needed to share my passion towards coffee, and all of its health benefits, with everyone around me. That’s why I opened my first coffee shop in Canada in 2004.
The Shan Shan Cafe Story
After 20+ years of roasting coffee beans, I can proudly say our coffee is the best you will ever enjoy.
Deep Passion For Artisan Coffee
One of our biggest challenges early on was sourcing high quality coffee. I searched all over BC for the freshest and highest quality coffee beans, but there was no local supplier that met my strict standards. After traveling to many coffee plantations and speaking with the most hardworking coffee farmers, I learned that the only way to achieve the quality of coffee I was looking for was to import our green beans from around the world and roast them myself! After 20+ years of roasting coffee beans, I can proudly say Shan Shan Cafe serves among the best coffee in Canada.

Discover The Delicacy of Coffee
Coffee roasting, similar to fermenting wine and distilling whiskey, takes coffee beans through a magical chemical-reaction filled journey. The master roaster may change the pre-heating temperature, roasting time, roasting temperature, airflow, among other things based on the coffee bean’s origin to bring out the best aromas & flavours. This is why no 2 master roasters will produce the exact same tasting coffee, even when starting with the same beans!
