For several years now, Drumroaster has provided not just excellent coffee but also a meeting place at Valleyview where friends gather daily to chat, perhaps discuss business with a client, or just sit quietly and read the newspaper. Ask any local where to go to have a coffee - there are other choices, but none more popular than Drumroaster.

Inside and outside, Drumroaster always has a buzz going. It's the pleasant buzz of people meeting friends in a pleasant atmosphere. Best coffee around for my money.

"The" place for coffee in the Cowichan Valley. Rustic and yet nouveau all in one. Great coffee and goodies from the bakery too. Perfect place for groups to meet or solo to sit and read a book.

If you are a connoisseur of coffee, this is a must stop. They roast their own brew and locals like us make it a regular stop. There are some options for breakfast and lunch, vegetarian, gluten-free available. It is quiet enough to concentrate on a project or meet with a client. Great place to catch up with a friend too....

Just returned home from a 5 month absence and the first stop, before groceries, was at Drumroaster to have a coffee and to purchase beans for home. We have visited ten European countries recently and tried coffees in all of them but very few cases me close to Drumroaster. Besides the coffee, they have great baking items, a super welcoming...

There is terrible coffee, average coffee, good coffee, great coffee and the best cup of coffee you can imagine. This is the last in the list and is well worth pulling off the highway to visit. You can tell these people have a passion for coffee and are happy to guide you towards the flavour you will like. We also... More

Not only is the coffee great, but their sense of humour is uniquely wonderful. They're even polite if you don't get the joke,

This family owned coffee roasters and cafe is unrivalled on Vancouver Island. All the delicious food is home made and the coffee is roasted on site. A wonderful welcoming feeling awaits you. For a real taste treat,try the coconut brioche. You won't be sorry.
