Let’s Begin!

We are super excited to start on this new project together since we have some exciting projects coming up in 2017!

Coffee Review: PT’s Coffee Roasting Co. – Ad Astra

Good morning beautiful people! It’s been a busy week, I apologize for the lack of articles last week, but we are here with a brand new coffee review! I’m sad that this week is over, mostly because we finished the bag of beans we tested and it has been one of my favourites of the…

Coffee Review: Propeller Coffee Turbo Espresso

It’s starting to look like I’ll be testing a brand new bag of beans a week from now until the end of my thesis! To any coffee roasters out there, send beans our way and we will happily review them! This week’s coffee review is the torontonian Propeller Coffee – Turbo Espresso, which we picked…

Coffee Review : ChocoSol’s This is Not a Bag of Coffee

Apologies for the lack of articles, there’s a lot going on behind the scenes that you can’t see from our social media. For example, I’ve started my comps year for my PhD; for those not familiar, I’m spending the next semester studying full time for huge exams in May. Plus, I’m working on my thesis…

Coffee Break: Trying Out New Things

I can’t believe that it’s already 2018. Pretty much a year ago today, Marie and I set out to start this blog. We didn’t know where it would go, but we just wanted to discover and share new things with you. 2018 will be the year of trying out new things; starting with some new…

Coffee Break: Tommy Café

I don’t think I’ve ever been able to enjoy this time of year, and won’t until I finish being a student. Thankfully, today is actually my last course (hopefully ever) that I’ll be sitting in as a student! Which means that after today, I’ll be able to rush my Christmas shopping and holiday prep. I…

Coffee Review: 94 Celcius Pérou Jaén

This snowy monday morning is brought to you by 94 Celcius‘ Peruvian espresso beans! In all honesty, we’ve been sipping espressos made with this bag of beans for a week, and its divine! I first heard about 94 Celcius when I was scrolling through the posts of the Souk @ Sat, an artisan show that…

Out & About: Tsukuyomi

C’est la mi-décembre. Tu sors de la job, il est 19h. Tu meurs de faim. Température typique de décembre à Montréal, il fait froid et humide. Le vent entre dans ton manteau de laine trop fin et tes chevilles, victime de la mode des jeans Frank and Oak trop court et des Adidas qui accommode…

Coffee Review: Phil & Sebastian Antigua Small Farms

If you’ve traveled around the coffee shop scene in Montreal, you’ll have most likely seen these coffee bags around, or even had a latte or two that was made with these beans. The Phil & Sebastian roaster bags catch your eye quite easily, with their big bold white writing and funky colour blocked patterns. They are…

Out & About: Café Jouney

Il y a quelques semaines, nous avons été invitées à l’ouverture officielle du Café Jouney (situé sur Ste-Catherine et MacKay). Le four et café méditerranéen est nommé après la ville natale libanaise, Jounieh, du proprio, et nous offre de la nourriture faite fraîche sur les lieux à tous les jours. Que ce soit pour le…

Coffee Review: 1936 Espresso by Fernwood Coffee Company

I’m currently jamming out to the old songs that I used to listen to in my teens… and I’ve realized something important. They sound so much better with a cup of coffee and a vacuum in hand. Not saying that they cannot be enjoyed on their own, far from it! It just feels right to…

Coffee Break: Café Pacéfika

We’ve all had this happen to us: we headed over to a very popular and Insta-worthy coffee shop last weekend to meet with some out-of-town friends, only to be disappointed in the fact that the place was jam packed and we were being looked at rather angrily for having a low-toned discussion. So we headed…
