Turmeric, beetroot, cacao, and steamed mylk. This Vancouver-based company is redefining the latte.
Vancouver is ground zero for health trends in British Columbia, and with a cafe on every corner of our beautiful city it was only a matter of time before health drinks and lattes merged. The result is Blume, the brainchild of Vancouver-based founders Ella Dalling and Karen Danudjaja.
A latte without caffeine might seem sacrilegious, but trading in your daily espresso for a superfood drink has undeniable benefits. They’re tasty as hell and Instagram-friendly; coming in rainbow shades of bright pink, crimson, and gold. Blume’s specialty lattes are dedicated to your health; they use ingredients like turmeric, chilis, and beetroots to boost your immune system. They’re the shift that every caffeine-hooked city-dweller needs to make in their daily routine – take it from an ex-espresso addict.
Morning ✨ A lot of people ask us if our blend is bitter because of the turmeric. It’s not! Although turmeric itself can be very strong, we balance our blends out with ginger, cardamom, cinnamon and black pepper. This gives it a subtle chai flavour and keeps your tastebuds very happy 🙂 . . . . . #turmericlatte #turmeric #goldenmylk #goldenmilk #blume #veganvancouver #plantbaseddiet #superfoods #beetroot #beet #beetrootlatte
The shop was created to provide a healthy lifestyle alternative. “Blume is about being open. When a flower is at its peak it’s fully bloomed – it’s open to the world, it’s very vulnerable,” says founder Dalling. “We wanted Blume to be a company about a lifestyle and less about the products that we actually sell.”
Everyday coffee consumer or not, Blume is intended to be a part of your daily routine. Luckily for Vancouver, Blume products are available in cafés and health-food stores across the city. They supply Canada-wide, either online or in certain locations you can check here.
Blume knows that alongside a dedication to health comes an understanding of balance. Dalling and Danudjaja appreciate the benefits of superfoods and pints alike. The women are grounded – enjoying their turmeric lattes next to their craft beers.
