Great cup of coffee, done right, very good roast ( I cannot stand over-roasted beans)quick service, very good location for a foot traffic, parking can be challenging in the summer, but most other time is pretty good. Good selection of pastries, and snacks, have not had gelato.

Staff was very friendly but I like to have the option of drip which they didn't have. My Americano was weak.

Latte and coffee with a shot of espresso. Staff is very friendly and efficient. I found the food this time around and there is a mix of sandwiches and scones and muffins. Pulp fiction, third space and giobeans are my favourite locations in Kelowna for coffee.

I'm lucky I found Giobean as I was missing good coffee during my stay in Kelowna. I had a double cortado and it was made to perfection. We also shared a cream croissant and it was very good with fluffy layers of buttery goodness. The owner officiated behind the counter and one felt very welcome. I'll go back to this... More

Near Delta Grand. Lovey fresh sandwhiches with Italian coffee. Came with an Italian accented server, although not sure the accent was authentic, but it was a nice try. Very friendly

With new coffee shops popping up on every corner in every city somehow the focus seems to be getting lost. GOOD COFFEE!! It's alarming how many so called coffee shops can't master the basics. But not at Giobean. Arguably the best coffee you'll get in all of Kelowna. Your coffee will almost always be prepared by the owner himself (Gio)... More
