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 Break: Aloha Espresso Bar

I’ve been waiting for ages to write this review! Mostly because I haven’t had time to get to this coffee shop, but also because EVERYBODY was writing about it when it first opened earlier this year. Seeing as I am not as trendy as everyone, I thought I’d wait a bit. Located in a prime…

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 Break: Lapin Pressé

Il y a quelques semaines, nous nous sommes données comme mission d’essayer au moins trois cafés, faisant tous partie du Indie Coffee Passport, situés dans le Plateau en une journée. Je n’ai jamais parlé ni marché aussi vite de ma vie que cette journée là… Qu’est-ce que tu veux que je te dise… la cafféine,…

Coffee Break: Esquina, Bar à Café

Last weekend we had a coffee hunting extravaganza. We tried not one, not two, but three coffee shops in the span of an hour and a half. And let me tell you, I’ve never walked that fast in my life! Caffeine sure does put a pep in your step! Our first stop of the day…

Coffee Break: Cardynal – Bar à Espresso

Situé sur la magnifique avenue du Mont-Royal, le Cardynal – Bar à Espresso est un cozy petit café qui a beaucoup à offrir. La sélection sur le menu affiché au mur présente tous les classiques recherchés des plus fins connaisseurs, et quelques items qui nous ont fait poser quelques questions : une planche-dégustation dans un café,…

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…

Out & About in Toronto: Harbour Front + Distillery District

Exploring the Distillery District and Harbour Front is one of my favorite things to do in Toronto, mostly because there is so much to see, and it changes every time I go. We attempted to save this exploring day for a nice and sunny one, but we weren’t so lucky; it was sunny, but mixed…

Out & About in Toronto: Kensington Market

When you visit downtown Toronto, you’re guaranteed to be told to check out Kensington Market. It is one of the most interesting and diverse areas of the city, and you’d be surprised at just how much can be crammed into a tiny space. I didn’t know this, but in 2006, Kensington Market was declared a…

Out and About in Toronto: Exploring Queen St. West

Day 3 of our exploring of Toronto consisted of walking down Queen St. West (in the cold and rain) to explore cute little stores that we had seen on our way to my aunt’s place. If you’ve ever been downtown Toronto on Queen St., the most popular parts are usually between Yonge and Spadina, where…

Coffee Review: Cut Coffee Roasters

As promised, here is the third coffee review of the month: Espresso Butter Knife by Cut Coffee Roasters.

We got this a bag the first week of July and have been testing it out for you, and there is a reason why it has taken us so long to write about it.
