Coffee, like yelling at the cat, thinking about motorcycles, and setting fire to the neighbor's wicker man, is vital to starting each day. Inaugurate the a.m. with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of coffee and treats at Momento Coffee House in Kitsilano. This Groupon is valid toward all menu items except the breakfast sandwich.
Momento Coffee House focuses on the subtleties of coffeemaking to offer quality brews to customers. The shop eschews boring coffee-pot technology to use equipment such as a French press and a La Marzocco FB/70 espresso machine, resulting in the sort of freshly brewed precision usually reserved for cyborgian baristas. Sample the grounded goods with a two-ounce cup of espresso ($2.75) or a 12-ounce cup of coffee ($2.50). Other drinkable delights include the Americano ($3), latte ($3.75), hot chocolate ($3), and loose-leaf tea ($3). Momento Coffee House also partners up with JagaSilk to serve maccha green tea ($4.50), available in latte ($6), iced-tea ($5.50), and mocha ($6.25) variations. Gluten-free and French-inspired goodies are available for snacking betwixt sips.
To ensure that future generations of Vancouverites will have the chance to stay up all night writing haikus in a caffeine-fueled frenzy, Momento Coffee House fully embraces sustainable practices, using compostable and recyclable products wherever it can. While Momento helps save the world, customers are encouraged to while away the afternoon in the coffee shop's cozy and eclectically decorated confines. Behold the underappreciated power of the bean with a visit to Momento Coffee House.
- Aesthetics aside, it’s the coffee that makes one loyal to any coffee house, and it’s here that Momento is doing something a little different. Instead of regular drip, they offer a pour-over…a freshly-made cup that hasn’t been sitting in a cask for hours. For other drinks, the enormous four-headed La Marzocco espresso machine corners like it’s on rails. – Susan Hollis, Martini Boys
- For something different order a coffee from their Siphon bar (also known as the vacuum pot) crafted by high-end glass producer Hariol. Siphon coffee is known as the clean cup, one that uses no paper filters, no direct heat and is made in a short brew time. The baristas are knowledgeable and friendly which is a boon to improving ones experience at a café. – Richard Wolak, Vancouver Foodster
- If you want GOOD coffee, sandwitches [sic], and/or smoothies then Momento is an excellent choice. The coffee is freshly made cup by cup and made with the best syphon and press machines and the beans are world class. – Cam, Urbanspoon
