Beanpod roasts, serves and sells a Dark and Italian blend. It’s all done in their downtown Fernie shop in small batches…so it doesn’t get much fresher than that.

Loaf daily brews Kootenay Coffee for everyone to enjoy. Kootenay Coffee comes from Nelson, BC. While you’re there, you should get a pumpkin loaf to go with your coffee. Deliciousness!

Bean Around The World is brewed at Freshies from lighter brews to the darkest, slaps-you-in-your-face coffee you’ll ever taste. I couldn’t quite figure out the background of BATW but I do have fond memories of hanging out at BATW in Vancouver – so to have it in Fernie is a little heartwarming.

Oso Negro is a popular coffee company from Nelson, BC. I like the coffee and Mugshots.
Of course, you can get coffee at other locations but these are the “coffee shops” of Fernie and sometimes it’s nice to know what they’re brewing (and roasting!)
The Fernie Pets Society will be hosting a fundraiser on May 9th for SNiP (a program that funds the spaying and neutering of feral cats and subsidizes the cost of fixing domestic ones) where they will be selling baked treats and used books at The Arts Station. If you think you would like to donate some of your special treats or pre-loved books please contact their food coordinator Tanya Carre at email@example.com or if you have books, you can drop them off at Barkside Pets between April 26th and May 8th.
From Fernie Pet’s Facebook page: “Thanks to your generous donations we have been able to fix 160 cats and kittens since beginning the SNiP program in 2013 and are still going strong! Most of these cats have been homeless, this means we have prevented hundreds of unwanted homeless kittens. We have also been able to adopt out 8 homeless cats this year! Jenny, Spicy Meat Ball, Van, Leo, Runty, Mr Stanford Tabbington, Dusty, and Tiny Tina Turner are loving life in their forever homes thanks to our amazing foster parents and Barkside Pets. We could not have accomplished this without your generous support! Thank you!
Please spay and neuter your pets and encourage your friends to do the same. If you have a cat that needs to be fixed please visit www.ferniepets.org for an application.”
The sale is just before Mother’s Day so it might be a good idea to swing by and satisfy someone’s sweet tooth. It being Mother’s Day and my birthday this year, I’m hoping for many sweet treats…and I do enjoy a good book.
This postcard for Cassandra Clean really stood out to me. They did a good job of designing something that looks fun, casual and, most importantly, clean. I’d hire you!
