Streaming Café: One of Kelowna’s best hand-crafted coffees laced with music and arts

Kelowna is the most populated city in the Okanagan Valley accounting for around 40% of the total population of The Okanagan (the names Okanagan Valley, The Okanagan and Okanagan Region are used interchangeably in this entry). The city of Kelowna is booming with tourism and arts, culture, both indoor and outdoor activities available to anyone of any age. So, personally, it is no surprise that Kelowna produces one of the best hand-crafted coffees in the city, if not the entire Region.

Rich, aromatic and full-bodied café latté.

The Back Porch: Harrison Hot Springs’ hole-in-the-wall flame-roasted coffee, pottery and more!

We visited Harrison Hot Springs expecting only to spend most of our time in the beautiful mineral-rich pools, little did we know that this is where we’d taste one of the best flame-roasted flavour-filled coffee.

Sign board.

The Back Porch sells roasted coffee, pottery, basket weaving, etc. It is only a few minutes drive away from Harrison Hot Springs and is one of the regular stops of those visiting the small town.

Fortunately, we didn’t just get to eat authentic Thai food, we were lucky enough to have stumbled upon tons of brochures on the road about cooking schools in Chiang Mai and choosing Baan Thai Cookery School wasn’t a difficult decision to make — it’s rated as “Excellent” by TripAdvisor and recommended by Lonely Planet!
