East Van Roasters is a non-profit initiative of the PHS Community Services Society. They provide support, training, and employment benefiting the women residents of the Rainier Hotel and other downtown Eastside housing initiatives through employment making bean-to-bar chocolate and coffee roasting. They've recently opened a second location which serves up the usual treats plus some amazing baking.
The Chocolate Project team recently took a road-trip and met with Shelley at EVR. We came back with boxes of their single-origin bars and a love of their incredible house-made chocolate-chip cookies. If you ever find yourself in Vancouver, pay them a visit!
This Saturday we will be sharing these three tasty single-origin bars with you: Madagascar, Peru, and Dominican Republic. Come by and get them before they're gone! Last fall we sold out within two weeks.
