Jitter juice, jet fuel, morning thunder…what ever you choose to call it coffee is important to locals and guests here in Whistler. It perks us up on early morning pow days, gets us up for extended play in the bike park after a long day at work or out adventuring, and it is regularly used as a gift from guests to retail assistants to show appreciation for really great service.
So being at the heart of a town that some-what runs on ‘jitter juice’ we are regularly asked by people who stay with us “Where’s the best coffee in Whistler?”.
When asked, it’s a question we ponder carefully because no-one wants to be ‘that person’ who recommended a bad coffee. So after rigorous, and somewhat scientific testing, we stumbled upon Whistler’s best kept coffee secret and we’re about to let you in on it.
So shhhh, don’t tell everyone.
The Big Secret: Emma at Mount Currie Coffee Co.
Whistler’s secret coffee weapon is not a special bean, an innovative new machine or a particular method, as you might expect. It’s pure passion…. in the form a person.
A person we’re going to call “Emma”. Why? Because that’s her name and we really want you to ask for her next time you’re in town!
Disclaimer: You have to be in Mount Currie when you ask for her, we can’t guarantee you’ll get the right Emma (or even coffee) if you ask for her at any other establishment in town
Where She’s From: Calgary, Alberta
Moved To Whistler: June 2014
Lives In Whistler Because: “The mountains are right there! In Calgary you have to travel to get up the hill, here it’s right on my doorstep”
What Makes Emma’s Coffee So Awesome: She was trained by some of the best barista’s in the country – Phil & Sebastian, in Calgary. Coffee-lovers you may know Phil & Sebastian because their staff regularly make appearances at The Canadian National Barista Championship as competitors and judges. And thankfully for Whistler, they passed on their golden knowledge to our new favourite barista, Emma.
To find Emma and her exquisite coffee just mosey on down to Mount Currie Coffee Co on Main Street, Whistler. It’s just a few steps from the hotel and we know you’ll love her and her joe.
She Makes The Best Coffee In Whistler, Literally. They’re Not Paying Us To Say This
Honestly. We won’t go anywhere else now, we’re hooked. See you there!
New here? Welcome and thanks for stopping by!
