Note: As a self-proclaimed coffee snob I search out good espresso and have found some establishments in my travels - from Sydney to Scottsdale. Check out my other postings. I am rating this coffee shop on its espresso. Today I ordered a large latte with skim milk. Frankly it was horrible. Even Starbucks is better and I really don't like... More

Hi Mel G. Thanks for taking the time to write your review. I understand from your review that you are a "self-proclaimed" coffee snob, but this is based on your personal opinion only. We have designed our espresso to cut through the 17oz of milk so you can still taste the coffee, unlike Starbucks where you need 5 shots just... More

Being from the states we are used to a Starbucks on every corner so we seek out the local coffee bars and roasters whenever possible. Beamers serves great coffee and chai teas. You can sit outside and sip your fav beverage. The Canmore locals are helpful and friendly and if you are traveling thru as we were, you'll wish you... More

We were in Canmore waiting for the shops to open and decided to go here. Loved it. Great drip coffee, Americanos, and hot chocolate. They have pastries and do sandwiches and cold drinks too. GO !☺

Stopped off in Camore for a little walk around and a coffee. While standing on a street corner, I was wondering out loud if there might be a s*******s nearby. A lady heard me and proceeded to give us an unsolicited endorsement of Beamer's Coffee. She undersold it!
