Featured in an August post on Choose Pemberton!
Here is an excerpt:
Before November 2007, when the Mount Currie Coffee Company opened its doors, Pemberton was a kind of Siberia for coffee-purists, an isolated wilderness far far from anywhere. But when the much anticipated cafe opened it doors, that all changed. The Pemberton coffeehouse scene started happening. Owner Chris Ankeny, a photographer and snowboard pro formerly of Bozeman, Montana, didn’t just bring excellent coffee to Pemberton. He brought what makes real coffeehouse culture something that Italians will raise protests for – an artisan approach to coffee, a commitment to community, a powerful sense of place and an honest connection to quality ingredients. His personal network has also meant that a steady stream of US journalists and pro athletes swing by, shining their spotlight on the happenings of P-ton. He’ll be fuelling riders this weekend at the registration for Slow Food Cycle. One double-punch Tuesday, (one coffee counts for two purchases on your coffee card, awesome!), we tore him away from the panini station, to ask him how it’s all going.
