Gastown—Nemesis Coffee is Vancouver's latest and hottest new coffee shop located in the ground floor of the new SFU Charles Chang Innovation Centre downtown on West Hastings just around the corner from Victory Square.
The forty-seat, 1,500 square foot cafe is bright, beautiful, and spacious with the usual clean wood finishes for sources of inspiration. As for the coffee, they use a variety of beans from Seattle's Slate Coffee, Toronto's Pilot Coffee Roasters, and Berlin's Five Elephant.
So far, the coffee is quite good. Every chocolate-y (but not too sweet) mocha comes with a mini version of their delicious, flame seared and melted s'more biscotti. They also have nitro cold brew on tap for a nicely refreshing treat.
The filtered pour over coffee station is already usually buzzing. Nemesis uses a V60 brew system as my Guatemalan cup of Catalan de Las Mercedes coffee from Pilot was excellently brewed and delicious with a crisp, clean taste.
The new cafe offers an unpretentious and incredibly friendly atmosphere on a city block otherwise populated by countless marijuana dispenseries and head shops.
Nemesis is legit. It's a more casual, less bustling yet deadly coffee serious cafe in the vein of Revolver down the block. It's an impressive debut thus far from the month-old coffee shop.
