Film. Food. Wine.

okanagan food wine festival

Cherry Hill Coffee is proud to be sponsoring Canada’s first Food and Wine Film Festival here in Kelowna BC. Living in the Okanagan it’s only natural that we’re huge wine fans and this festival celebrates our award winning wines and will also bring great documentaries to the valley.

The inaugural Okanagan Food & Wine Film Festival will be held September 13-15th at the Rotary Centre for the Arts with the Mary Irwin Theatre acting as home base. Unlike a typical film festival, the films will all have something in common – they will be about food and/or wine and ticket holders will also eat and drink what they see on the screen!

Opening night of the festival is looking amazing featuring the highly regarded sommelier documentary Somm. We’re stoked for this film because not just because wine tasting and coffee cupping use similar methods to iden­tify taste char­ac­ter­is­tics but because it’s getting a lot of buzz, with a 77% Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The evening includes pre-screening bubbles from Sumac Ridge Estate Winery and Haywire Winery, post screening Q & A with Somm star Ian Cauble, then reception with delicious local food, wine and live music from Windmills.

Sound like fun? Grab your passes here before they’re gone.

Preferred Offering Available Now

We’re excited to show off our brand spanking new 12 oz coffee bag! We’ve streamlined our line-up too with a Preferred Offering. Geared toward lovers of drip coffee, our Preferred Offering of freshly roasted coffees are like your favourite hoody; warm, comforting and familiar. If you’re a creature of habit looking for a tried and true brew, you’ll find it here. Our Preferred Offering is stocked with favourites like Okanagan Gold and Jivaro Dusk. Our Preferred Offering also features some newcomers like sweet and balanced Lush and sparkling clean Fino.

A new Limited Offering line-up will be available in September focusing on unique single-origin’s with distinctive characteristics and an uncommon flavour profile. Stay tuned for more on that in the coming weeks.

We’ve hummed and hawed about going to a smaller package for a while now, and for many different reasons, we’ve decided to go from 16 oz (454g)) to 12 oz (340g) bags of coffee. As a coffee roaster, we’re all about freshness. The less coffee you have sitting in an opened bag at home, the more you can enjoy it at it’s freshest. Once opened, coffee begins to stale pretty fast, and the worst thing (next to running out of coffee) is stale beans.

Our new 12 oz bags will be less of a hit on your wallet too, which is always a good thing. Because of the lower price point on a bag of coffee, we’ve also reduced the free shipping amount. You’ll notice that free shipping is now available for all orders of $50 or more.

Lastly this new size lets everyone try more of our coffee with less risk. Instead of being a stuck with a pound of a coffee that maybe you’re not so crazy about, you’ll now have a chance to purchase a smaller 12oz bag that requires less commitment to try it out.

Everything else is staying the same; we’re still hand-roasting certified organic coffee in small batches every day at our Kelowna roastery in the hot hot hot Okanagan Valley.

Overall, we feel that moving to 12oz bags will be an awesome experience for everyone – keeping your daily vice affordable and fresh, and giving you something shiny and new to look at while you’re waking up in the morning. Enjoy!
