Cyrous Sharifpour, Owner of Waves Coffee at Main and Cordova speaks about helping in the Vancouver Downtown Eastside (DTES)

In this video, Cyrous Sharifpour, Owner of Waves Coffee on Main and Cordova ( across the Vancouver Police Station ) speaks about his Coffee and how his shop wants to help our Downtown Eastside neighborhood! :)

For more information on our DTES area, please read the wikipedia link

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Downtown_Eastside

Cyrous is a warm hearted and gregarious man who makes sure that everyone in his coffee shop is having a wonderful time!

In this day and age, it’s quite rare to see the owner step out from behind his desk to come out and engage with his customers! :)  What a welcoming feeling that is to feel valued as customers!  People wish to connect to something local in our area and Waves Coffee at Main and Cordova is it! :)

Waves Coffee sponsors local non profit groups from here in our DTES neighborhood to bigger venues such as our recent “Women in Film Festival” at the VanCity Theatre where our mentor Mo Simpson was honored with an award from Kodak to a  Large well attended multicultural event at the Plaza of Nations where over 5,000 cups of coffee were poured to support the arts and shows!

 It”s such a great feeling knowing that there are still people like Cyrous and places like Waves Coffee that help the local scene :)

As AHAMEDIA are emerging new media and social media citizen journalists, we are glad to know that there are places in our neighborhood that have Free Wireless from 6AM – 12 midnight everyday!  We are a very mobile and multimedia production team, and we are glad that a warm place with great customer service and coffee is open for people like us!
