Take a Pacific West concept and mould it together with European flare, add a comfortable fireplace lounge area and a room of warm & inviting colors. Dress it up with original hand-painted art and combine that with exceptional products, old world roasted coffee and friendly service. Put it all together and you are enjoying the Wired Monk experience.
A Wired Story
A Wired Story
Originating from a vision, founder & CEO Brad Peters, began the ‘Wired Monk’ coffee experience in 1998. With anticipation of expansion through franchising, Brad and his wife developed and operated the first location in Langley, BC for over 4 years. A young and enthusiastic entrepreneur, Brad rapidly grew the ‘Wired Monk’ to become a household name within the Langley area. In 2002, the original location, as well as a second location in Langley, sold to individual owners and the company began its franchising venture.
THE LEGEND OF THE WIRED MONK
COFFEE WAS FIRST DISCOVERED MANY CENTURIES AGO IN NORTHERN AFRICA BY A HERDER WATCHING OVER HIS FLOCK.
HE NOTICED HIS SHEEP BECAME QUITE “PEPPY” AFTER EATING THE BERRIES FROM ONE PARTICULAR BUSH. CURIOUS AS TO THE EFFECTS OF THESE BERRIES HE PICKED A HANDFUL AND ATE THEM. MOMENTS LATER HE FELT REVITALIZED AND ENERGIZED.
NEWS REGARDING THE EFFECTS OF THIS “MYSTICAL” BERRY SPREAD RAPIDLY THROUGHOUT THE LAND.
WHEN THE BENEDICTINE MONKS RECEIVED WORD OF THIS AMAZING FRUIT, LARGE QUANTITIES WERE GATHERED, DRIED AND TRANSPORTED TO THE MONASTERIES. THE MONKS THEN COMBINED THE DRIED BERRIES WITH WATER AND DRANK THE RESULTING LIQUID. THIS PROVIDED THEM WITH GREATER EXHILARATION FOR LATE NIGHT PRAYER… AND THUS, THE LEGEND OF… THE WIRED MONK.
