Here are the five best coffee roasters in Burnaby that every coffee enthusiast must try.

Coffee enthusiasts will appreciate that Cuppa Joe also offers a good choice of bean varieties as well. However, there are few naturally processed options, which may be a drawback for some specialty coffee lovers.

Love the beans and everyone had always been very helpful and made good recommendations. The downtown espresso is my go to espresso bean and I love it.Martin, from Google
Crimininally underrated. JJ, 49th, Rocanini, Timbertrain, etc, etc – I preferred CuppaJoe. No pretense, just great beans at an unreal price.Pe, from Google

I love the coffee and have been buying beans and getting an Americano every once in a while for the past year. I have always received consistently amazing service from the staff. I leave with a smile on my face, and I’m thankful for the kindness and care they put into serving customers. The new patio is pretty nice too!Catherine Google
Great coffee, great baked goods, especially the muffins. Even the iced Americano has fantastic flavour. I guess they just use better beans. The outdoor seating and neighbourhood vibe is really nice as well.Richard, from Google
3. Lions Bay Coffee Roasters
High quality roasts from a small local Burnaby roastery. Customers agree that Lions Bay Coffee Roasters offer a great product at a good price and with excellent customer service.
You can also buy their beans locally at Buy-Low Foods, Choices Markets and Nesters Market.
We appreciate that their subscription frequency can be customized by week, which is a nice feature.
One drawback is that they only offer a few single origin coffees, which are all out of stock at the time of writing. This may be a dealbreaker for some specialty coffee enthusiasts.

This is a fantastic small batch, local, freshly roasted coffee place! The customer service is so awesome as well. My husband and I are total coffee snobs and we absolutely love this coffee. We try to tell everyone about Lions bay! We come back every time we run out of our supply.Krysalynne, from Google
Lions Bay is fantastic! We are certified coffee snobs and are super picky about the coffee we drink – it can’t be bitter or fruity. So far, all of the blends we’ve tried are delicious! We order online, and they hand-deliver in a nice little bag to our door within a couple days. We will continue to order from Lions Bay, and even better, they are a local company!Carlee, from Google
4. Heights Coffee Co.
Heights Coffee Co. is a small Burnaby roasting operation that provides locals with a great option for freshly roasted beans. As of writing, you can only buy Heights Coffee at local markets and pop up locations. Follow their Facebook to see where they will be next.
They don’t offer a wide coffee selection like some commercial-scale roasters, and they only offer one single-origin roast for the specialty coffee crowd. But we feel Heights Coffee is a worthwhile Burnaby-based roaster to support.
