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 Break: Testing the Wacaco Nanopresso

Not long ago I reached out to Wacaco to see if we could test out their new Nanopresso, which is a hand-activate espresso machine! I’ve been dying to find good coffee when I’m on campus, since they serve, what I call, dishwater coffee, so this device seemed to be an answer sent from up above….

Coffee Review: Rescue Coffee Co.

Finally the day has come! This coming Tuesday we are heading out to pick up our fur baby! Yes! Marie & I have become fur-moms to an adorable little Cockapoo (cross between a Cocker Spaniel and a Poodle) that we’ve named after our two favourite Drag Queens. We’re more than excited to introduce you to…

Out & About: Bref, “C’est du papier!”

Dernièrement, je suis allée me promener dans le Mile End pour visiter ma boutique préférée, Bref Mtl, pour son vernissage de la nouvelle thématique “papier”. Comme on approche tranquillement du temps des fêtes – just saying, mais il reste 84 jours avant Noël – je commence à faire mes listes d’inspiration pour mes cadeaux tout en…

Coffee 101 : Roast Profiles

Last week we discussed the differences between caffeine content in light and dark roasts. Now that you know that no matter which one you choose, you’re still getting that caffeine buzz, we can move on to the roast profiles! Being able to distinguish the main profiles will be beneficial to you, since you can now…

Coffee Break: Espresso Bison

Walking out of the house this morning, I was hoping for a break in the heat, unfortunately, the heat is here to stay… by the time this article publishes, hopefully it cool down enough for me to be able to fall asleep without having five ice packs in bed with me… Yeah, Marie didn’t appreciate…

Coffee Break : Humble Lion

Established in 2012, the Humble Lion is one of the McGill’s student body’s officially unofficial hangout near campus. Currently hidden under scaffolding, you might have a hard time finding it, but once you do, you’ll probably never want to leave. Walking in, you have a couple of tables and seating option by the front window…

Coffee 101 : Light Roast vs. Dark Roast

Our main goal for today was to try and explain which roast, either light or dark, will have the best bang for your buck, aka. the highest caffeine content.

Thank You

Two simple words that are often implied or forgotten, but mean so much. Although I thank you every single day for loving me and being in my life, there are a few things that I wanted to add. Thank you for your cold little toes that come to warm themselves up on my shins and…

Out & About: Gin Dandy chez Domaine LaFrance

Pssssst! L’été n’est pas fini! On a eu peur la semaine dernière, mais wow, cette semaine, on est gâté! Et qui dit soleil, dit terrasse… et qui dit terrasse dit gin & tonic? Sangria? Margarita? J’pense que tu comprends ce que j’essaie de dire! Pour célébrer ce beau temps, on a été invitées à aller…

Coffee Review: Equator Coffees

I always try to find the silver lining in everyday life, because life would be so sad if we were to only focus on the negative things. To sum it up, my grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s last year, and things have recently started getting quite intense quite fast. Because of this, she is now…

Coffee Break : Le Club – Espresso Bar

Dans les dernières années, on a pu voir une augmentation considérable de gens à vélo en ville; je parle de mon expérience personnelle bien sûr, mais ici à Montréal, il y a une grande communauté de cyclistes urbains qui utilisent leurs vélo comme moyen de transport. Malgré tous les problèmes que la ville peut avoir…

Coffee Break: Café Reine Garçon

Ça t’arrive des fois de vouloir te maquiller et te mettre belle juste parce que? Je trouve que ces jours-là sont toujours les meilleurs; j’ai l’impression qu’il y a toujours quelque chose d’inattendu et super qui se passe, qui ne fait que renforcer l’idée que c’est une journée chanceuse. Eh bien, j’ai eu cette expérience…
