Hello folks! Sorry I haven't been around here much lately. I was in Vancouver BC for the better part of last week. Of course I brought my coffee making equipment! I kept it simple this time: an Esbit pot/stove combo, Soto Helix pour over coffee thing, ACW mug. I bought Railtown Blend from JJ Bean, Vancouver's local big coffee chain, and had it ground.

The original idea was to make Coffee Outside each of the three days I'd be in town. The weather had different plans, as Monday and Wednesday were quite wet. So I ended up having three different Coffee Outsides on Tuesday!

The first was at Queen Elizabeth Park, Vancouver's highest spot at a paltry 499 feet (152 m) in elevation. Nice view, though.


Next up was a picnic spot in Pacific Spirit Park. Looks quiet, but there were many dog walkers and little kids running about.


And finally the beach! Spanish Banks to be precise. Because no Vancouver Coffee Outside is complete without something by the water.

Nice.   A leisurely ride through a wooded park, coffee break, and picturesque views, can't beat it!

Excellent.  It appears you found some mighty pleasant spots.

You mentioned that one location had dogs and children around.  That reminded me of some of the looks I receive when I brew-up a fresh cup at Trinity Park in downtown Fort Worth.  Do you get a few amused looks or questions when you pause for coffee in populated places?

Me, trying not to sound too smug - "Why, yes, I DID just brew this mug of hot, fresh coffee right here outside.  It is delicious.  Don't you wish you would have thought of that?"

I did have a few people at Queen Elizabeth ask me about my setup, as they were intrigued by it and wanted to try it themselves!
