PLATFORM 7’S STATION MASTER STORY
Coffee memories as a child growing up in North Burnaby, B.C. with a wonderful blend of English, Irish and wee bit Scottish flavour in me blood, always revolved around family. I had the wonderful and fortunate blessings of vibrant and colourful grandparents, aunts & uncles and the influence of two loving parents. Some of my earliest memories are of my dad and grandfather taking me to the Zenith Cafe near Hastings & Main in the early hours for a mug of coffee to brace the day. Days filled watching my dad working in my grandfather’s butcher shop ‘The Ferry Meat Market’, supplying many of the fishing boats, tug boats and logging camps along BC’s coast.
My mom created one of my fondest teenage memories when she installed a coffee-grinder in our newly renovated home in the early 70’s. The fragrance of freshly ground coffee still remains to this day as the source & inspiration of my journey into coffee culture.
And off I went into the ever-adventurous journey of my young adult life looking after my dad’s hotel & bar business and my own businesses…long hours assisted with heavy-scented mugs of coffee. And plenty of ’em. And I certainly can’t forget one of my favourite stories of all-time…when the mother of my son, Lynne and I encountered the enchanting experience of coffee in Bali. On a sea-side terrace sipping the most glorious cup of coffee we’d ever tasted.
With great respect and love, a dove-tail into my dear friend Livio’s recollections. He & I built the East Van & Kits cafés. His coffee memories centered around family time and the kitchen table or business meetings, relationships and deals being hatched and agreed upon over a cup of coffee at a café. Livio is no longer at Platform 7 – but it is important for me to note that Livio & I shared some amazing adventures and experiences and it was our time spent together in a couple coffee shops on The Drive – that was the birthplace. It was there that the inspiration to do something in the coffee world was borne.
To bring all of the memories and magic together…in a place that people would feel love & connection. To take the coffee culture that we had seen, smelt, tasted & felt and elevate it to our own unique level of experience. To bring a vintage European train station feel and create a room with a superlative design, and blend this with the best coffee roaster…Stumptown, the best espresso bar equipment, a fabulous collection of single origin brewing equipment and techniques, locally-sourced artisan baked goods, gourmet sandwiches made-house, the finest assembly of passionate, caring and engaging staff, an incredible vault of music simmering over the sound system. And Platform 7 was built.
Experience Platform 7.
