Wildman Coffee and Gifts opens at Bella Coola Airport

Looking for a great coffee, a snack, and local gifts? Wildman Coffee and Gifts is now open for business at the Bella Coola Airport.

The creation of local entrepreneur Jen Taylor, the shop features specialty coffee and tea, local art, books, seafood, yoga accessories and more. And the name? “You could call my husband a sasquatch enthusiast,” Jen explains. “And given the history of the Valley, we both felt the name was a good fit.”

The shop is tucked into the west end of the airport and is open daily during airport hours, Monday to Saturday, 8am – 2pm, and Sundays from 9am – 3pm. In addition to Kicking Horse coffee and artisan snacks, the shop is offering a wide variety of items that are mostly local. You will also soon be able to build your own sandwiches to go, and they are working on making local tours available to book onsite.

Pieces from local artisans such as Tahirah Hall, Tanelle Hindley, and Teresa-Marie Bagshaw are all featured in the shop. There are paintings, leather jewelry, pottery, even a magical glacier-sourced mud mask, unique in its purity. Jen is also stocking yoga items from Halfmoon yoga and some outdoor items, such as water bottles and mugs. You can also purchase locally made wild salmon products from renowned local business, Bella Coola Valley Seafoods.

So, if you are looking for a great spot to grab a coffee and enjoy a beautiful (sunny) walk with friends, check out Wildman Coffee and Gifts.
