Coffee Review: goodboybob coffee

Why hello there! It’s been a long long time! Last time I posted, there was still snow on the ground; right now, theres a bunch of puddles here but at least theres the green stuff in the trees! I kept my promise of testing out new coffees while I was studying, and man, I think…

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: 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: 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: 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 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.

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 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…
