Coffee Review: Anchored Coffee – Figurehead

This has been one very weird year, the first of its kind actually. I spent the first 5 months of it chained to my desk, studying 8h a day, 7 days a week for my exams. The past 3 months have been a mix of getting my life back on track, trying to catch up…

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 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: PT’s Coffee Roasting Co. – Ad Astra

Good morning beautiful people! It’s been a busy week, I apologize for the lack of articles last week, but we are here with a brand new coffee review! I’m sad that this week is over, mostly because we finished the bag of beans we tested and it has been one of my favourites of the…

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 : ChocoSol’s This is Not a Bag of Coffee

Apologies for the lack of articles, there’s a lot going on behind the scenes that you can’t see from our social media. For example, I’ve started my comps year for my PhD; for those not familiar, I’m spending the next semester studying full time for huge exams in May. Plus, I’m working on my thesis…

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 Break: Café Pacéfika

We’ve all had this happen to us: we headed over to a very popular and Insta-worthy coffee shop last weekend to meet with some out-of-town friends, only to be disappointed in the fact that the place was jam packed and we were being looked at rather angrily for having a low-toned discussion. So we headed…

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: Kaito Coffee @ West Elm

We met Holly and Paul, the dynamic duo behind Kaito Coffee Roasters, earlier this year when we first discovered their coffee at Bref Mtl. Since then, we’ve had the chance to not only visit their roasting facilities in Hudson, Qc., but also collaborate with them for our first ever giveaway. They are absolutely the best:…
