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…

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…

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 Review: Chinook by Brûlerie aux quatre vents

If you ask my mom which is her favourite place to visit when she comes to Montreal, she’ll automatically say Atwater Market. It has actually become a little bit of a running gag when we talk to her and her plans to visit, since she would rather spend time there than with us! When she…

Coffee Review: Black Cat Classic Espresso by Intelligentsia

Apparently I have something with animal named coffee blends. This is purely by chance, since I’ve been meaning to review this particular blend since April! This April, I tried out, for the firs time, the Black Cat Classic Espresso by Intelligentsia at Leaves Café; and again later this summer at  Hvmans Café. From all the…

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…

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 Review: Kona Coffee

Previously, we wrote an article about the Aloha Espresso Bar and we mentioned that we would be reviewing 100% pure Kona coffee. Well, here we are! As of what I know, the Aloha Espresso Bar seems to be one of the only places in Montreal where you can find pure 100% Kona coffee. Now, I…

Coffee Review: Deep Water Dark by Jumping Bean

By a show of hands, who here has ever been to Newfoundland? I’m assuming not that many of you! Well, for those who haven’t been, please go! It’s an amazing place to visit and explore; if you’ve ever wanted to travel and visit places in Canada, Newfoundland is on the top of my list! Newbies…

Coffee Review: Indie Coffee Passport

Alas, the time has come… The 14th of August has flown by, which means that we can no longer use our Indie Coffee Passport. This also means that we can give our honest review about this passport! To kick things off, we received a set of these passports for Christmas last year, and got to start…

Coffee Review: Cherry Bomb Coffee

This first coffee review of the month is all about a coffee that we picked up our first day of holidays in Toronto! It fueled every day of our trip, and we’re on our last beans right now. So if you’re in Toronto and feel like making your way to Roncesvalles, stop by Cherry Bomb…
