The Gentry Espresso & Wine Bar
The Gentry comes from a long line of specialty coffee lovers and food conscious people. Originally started as Java Jamboree in 2003 this coffee journey and love of all things Craft has brought us to 2016 as The Gentry Espresso & Wine Bar. We still serve the same great coffee, with the addition of amazing local, and organic food, art, music and of course, community. We seek the betterment of coffee for all mankind, ensuring sourcing with an emphasis on clarity and purity of product, using roasters with an emphasis on sweetness and body, and brewing with a focus on framing both of these qualities in a beautiful cup, in a physical space where commerce and art intersect. We work with local Albertan and Canadian artists, farmers, businesses, and bakeries to ensure that community is at the forefront of all things we do.
We hope you enjoy.

Our coffee is something to be enjoyed slowly. An art form and labor of love. We use only ethically sourced beans of the highest quality, single origin full of body, roasted with a beautiful balance of acidity and sweetness. Our Baristas are trained to hone the craft and skill of coffee extraction to ensure you enjoy every ounce of coffee in your cup. We exclusively work with Phil & Sebastian coffee roasters, Rosso Coffee Roaster , and Bows and Arrows out of Victoria.
Our wine is carefully selected and curated by Richmond Hill wines to ensure you have an adventure with every glass. We ethically source Organic and biodynamic wines and change our wine menu seasonally to allow your palate to be ever expanding. Working closely with our Sommelier from Richmond Hill we look to bring a unique wine offering that you cannot find anywhere else, priced affordably and enjoyed long after the last sip.
