By dreaming big, our original shop in Aspen Gardens has been a huge success and we are excited to expand and reach even more people. On May 2, 2018 we will be doing just that! We are thrilled to share this expansion opportunity with our loyal customers and followers.
Square 1 wants to bridge the gap between high end coffee and community, making it accessible and enjoyable for everyone to appreciate. We aim to break the barrier between quality and comfort and become both an inviting provider and an educator in the Edmonton coffee scene. Simple guides to brewing well, community workshops and comprehensible, obtainable coffee knowledge are just a few ways we at Square 1 hope to reach out and invite you into our process. By dreaming big, we want to cultivate a welcoming environment of creativity and connection in our staff, customers and local community.
