ABOUT VHF Coffee Ltd.
VHF Coffee is a project by Shawn Mankowske, an Indigenous Yukon Artist and
Entrepreneur, based in Calgary. Shawn has co-created/co-directed a few notable art projects
in Calgary since graduating from ACAD in 2007, including; 809 Gallery, Wreck City, and Pith
Gallery & Studios. During these projects, Shawn worked various jobs, including being a
Barista-a position that struck a surprising chord with Shawn.
After working in and managing various “Third Wave” Coffee shops across North
America for over a decade, Shawn decided to take what he had learned and try an
experiment into the idea of a mobile space with removable carts that was able to operate
year round and anywhere a coffee solution might be required. It was at this point the VHF
Coffee was realised, and founded during the pandemic in 2020.
The goal at VHF Coffee is to provide the best cafe beverages and to strengthen
interpersonal relationships in communities. VHF Coffee upholds the values of “Third Wave”
coffee shops, illuminating transparencies about the coffee industry. VHF Coffee supports
ethically sourced, and locally roasted beans that are direct trade. VHF Coffee is
environmentally minded, using only compostable containers and being partially powered by
VHF Coffee looks forward to seeing you on your next adventure!
