Rewards For Students Who Like Trees Coffee and Cheesecake

Trees Coffee ESL university SFU UBC BCIT students downtown Vancouver cafeOur coffee beans and herbal teas aren’t the only thing with international flavor you can find at our cafes. We love that Trees Organic’s downtown locations gets to play host to friendly and hardworking local students from UBC, SFU and BCIT, as well as far off-places like Korea, Japan and Mexico.

It’s hard not to notice these diligent crowd cramming for exams, practicing their English conversation skills or doing their homework online with our free WiFi while sipping a steamy latte or green tea. Trees Organic cafes are also a popular place for ESL teachers to bring their students for a taste of Canadian culture (and a welcome break from the classroom, particularly on a hot summer day).

Now we want to give a something back to our international customers… and any of their friends from class they’d like to invite along.

  • Students get a 10% discount off all regular price items! Just show your student ID.
  • Trees Organic’s owner also offers free lectures for students to learn more about coffee as well as business management. For ESL school teachers, this is a great opportunity to bring  students to the lecture for a chance to work on English skills. Lectures at our Granville location can be booked by calling (604)684-5022. Doron can accommodate groups of 5-15 people.

Trees Organic could be the regular hangout for your study group. Come here for lunch and fuel up with our delicious fresh-baked bread, hearty soups and savory sandwiches. Enjoy some of our famous cheesecake while you study. Practice your English conversation skills after school with some friendly café culture.


The ESL crowd in particular have already come a long way for one of the best cities to learn English and get a feel for North American culture. Our locations in Yaletown, Gastown and the heart of Vancouver on Granville Street are just a short walk away from their school.

Check out a welcoming place for students that offers the best of Canadian hospitality, great coffee and tasty treats, no more than a quick trip from your school. Looking forward to seeing more of our friends after school!
