Coffee Review: Newland “La Muerte”

Depuis quelques mois, nous nous sommes mises à essayer du café « filtre » pour tenter quelque chose de nouveau et d’explorer d’autres façons d’apprécier une bonne tasse de café, qui n’est pas sous format espresso. Nous avons commencé par s’équiper avec un cône V60 et une carafe par Hario via la boutique torontoise  BruHouse. Cette boutique…

On teste: Le Support – Fondation de la déficience intellectuelle

En revenant de nos mini-vacances il y a deux semaines, nous nous sommes faites acceuillir par quelques publisacs à notre porte. Habituellement, ça va directement au recyclage, mais on a décidé d’y faire le tour au cas où il y avait du papier journal qu’on pouvait récupérer pour notre composte (oui! Ça coupe les odeurs!)….

Coffee Review: Social Coffee & Tea co.

Quick question for you, when it’s 35 degrees out and humid, do you still reach for that warm cup of coffee or are you #teamicedcoffee? I must say, it’s not the same just drinking iced coffee… I feel that I’m missing out on my morning ritual when I don’t have my hot pour–over or latte….

Coffee Break : Humble Lion

Established in 2012, the Humble Lion is one of the McGill’s student body’s officially unofficial hangout near campus.

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…

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…

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.

Out and About in Toronto: Exploring Roncesvalles

The Patates are on holidays! Yes sir! We decided to come to Toronto for our holidays, since the last time we came was way too short and way too cold. We felt like there was so much more to do and see; so we decided to come back for an entire week and explore the…

Coffee Break in Gatineau: Café Mulligan

We’re taking you on a little roadtrip this week, taking you to Aylmer, Gatineau, for a quick little coffee break! For those that aren’t familiar with the area, it is the major anglophone neighborhood of the Gatineau region, located along the Ottawa/Ouatouais river. It’s quite picturesque, especially in the older part near the marina. Over…

Coffee Review: Little Victories Coffee Roasters

This week’s roast is brought to you by Little Victories, an independent coffee roaster from Ottawa! Although we love our i deal coffee blends, we thought we’d try something new, in order to encourage more local businesses while back home for some quick little holidays. We discovered not only a super cool coffee shop and…
