Owner Ryan Taylor operated a coffee cart around Victoria’s Inner Harbour in 1993.
Five years later he opened the coffee house here in Quadra Village and subsequently he and his wife, Kristy, added the Cook Street Village and Dockside Green (next to Fol Epi) locations.
Caffe Fantastico’s coffee beans are sourced from all over the coffee growing world, then roasted right here on their premises.
In addition to their various single bean and blended coffees, Caffe Fantastico offers hand-pulled draught Nitro: espresso with water (so more like an Americano), pressurized which makes it foamy, and makes it look like a Guinness beer, but it’s a chilled coffee. Different!
And on a hot summer day, I had an iced Americano with cream – yummy thirst quencher!
But on a cooler day, I anticipate the first breath of the warm, coffee-infused air that greets me as I enter Caffe Fantastico. My day is made!
