Subject: Decent decaf beans in Vancouver?
 

For over a year I have been getting my decaf beans from Elysian on Broadway.  They used to receive Black Cat beans every Wed and I would pick up my pound Wed afternoon that had been roasted on the Monday.  It worked out perfectly that way but a few months ago, they started doing their own roasting and I am am not able to get beans as fresh as I used to with Black Cat.  Beans I pick up are at least a week old sometimes 2 weeks (they don't have a fixed schedule) and I have driven 20 mins there when they had no decaf.  I don't think they sell a lot of decaf beans so its almost always older stock.

Is there anywhere else that sells decent decaf beans in Vancouver?

49th parallel has decent decaf that is never older than a week.
Social's Nyet-Nyet is pretty good to if you dont mind ordering online and waiting 5-7 days. They always ship coffee roasted the same day or the day before. Shipping is free over 24 or 25$.

Thanks Sashas!  I will check them both out but I will probably give 49th parallel a try first since they are local.
