Signature Coffee Drink Challenge 2022 Winners

The Vancouver Foodster Signature Coffee Drink Challenge was a success featuring unique coffee creations at cafes around Vancouver. Each cafe featured their creation on their menu from January 12 – February 6, 2022 and their customers voted for their favourites throughout the challenge.
