Thom Bargen Coffee & Tea:
“Just serving great coffee in a cool atmosphere” is the simply-stated goal of friends and baristas Thomas John Hiebert and Graham Bargen. But it’s actually more than that. The pair hopes their new coffee shop will be a hub, an environment that encourages creativity and art  — a place where people can come and discuss culture and be inspired.

So they asked themselves, “If we walked to a coffee shop, what would we want to see?” And then they went about designing exactly that. Their newly renovated building features an industrial-modern design with warm wood and exposed brick. “It’s a pairing of a nice gallery where we can showcase what we want, but it also has a bit of an edge to suit West Broadway.” And look for a changing exhibit of bicycles on the wall. “We love bikes. In our opinion, a bike is one of the timeless pieces of art,” Bargen says.

And these fellows take their coffee very seriously. Count on the freshest direct-trade coffee sourced from around the world. Bargen says they treat their coffee like food. “It’s seasonal, it’s harvested in certain regions in certain countries and we serve it completely fresh. A lot of it is the education we’re bringing to the community of what coffee can actually be about.”

They also feature a selection of looseleaf teas brewed in their slick new teapresso machine. Freshly baked goods (from Jonnies Sticky Buns) round out the menu. Thom Bargen Coffee & Tea will be open 7:00 – 7:00, seven days a week at 64 Sherbrook St.”  Andrea Ratuski

“Sharing the Sherbrook Street location in the back room of the café is Wilder Dry Goods, a joint operation between Brendon Friesen and Nathan Bezoplenko. Together they have been making bags, aprons, and other items and are excited to have a retail space to sell them. They’ve moved their Exchange District workshop and now work out of the back room of their retail space, behind the incredible barn-style door.” Greg Gallinger
