East Van Roasters

Partly motivated by a taste for good chocolate, Paolo walks over to East Van Roasters in Vancouver's Gastown, operated by Managing Director Shelley Bolton (pictured on the right) and chocolatier Merri Schwartz (on the left). They create 'bean-to-bar' chocolate and coffee, roasting and preparing their own ethically-sourced cacao and coffee beans on site. They're also a non-profit initiative giving training and employment to woman in the Downtown Eastside. Visit EVR with Paolo on Saturday just after the 7:30am news.
