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…

Out & About: Tsukuyomi

C’est la mi-décembre. Tu sors de la job, il est 19h. Tu meurs de faim. Température typique de décembre à Montréal, il fait froid et humide. Le vent entre dans ton manteau de laine trop fin et tes chevilles, victime de la mode des jeans Frank and Oak trop court et des Adidas qui accommode…

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: 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:…

Out & About: Bref, “C’est du papier!”

Dernièrement, je suis allée me promener dans le Mile End pour visiter ma boutique préférée, Bref Mtl, pour son vernissage de la nouvelle thématique “papier”. Comme on approche tranquillement du temps des fêtes – just saying, mais il reste 84 jours avant Noël – je commence à faire mes listes d’inspiration pour mes cadeaux tout en…

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…

Out & About: Gin Dandy chez Domaine LaFrance

Pssssst! L’été n’est pas fini! On a eu peur la semaine dernière, mais wow, cette semaine, on est gâté! Et qui dit soleil, dit terrasse… et qui dit terrasse dit gin & tonic? Sangria? Margarita? J’pense que tu comprends ce que j’essaie de dire! Pour célébrer ce beau temps, on a été invitées à aller…

Coffee Break: Café Reine Garçon

Ça t’arrive des fois de vouloir te maquiller et te mettre belle juste parce que? Je trouve que ces jours-là sont toujours les meilleurs; j’ai l’impression qu’il y a toujours quelque chose d’inattendu et super qui se passe, qui ne fait que renforcer l’idée que c’est une journée chanceuse. Eh bien, j’ai eu cette expérience…

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: Lili & Oli

This week’s new discovery coffee shop is the cute little Lili & Oli in the St-Henri neighborhood. I have walked by this place a couple of time, but it has always been packed of people, so I kept on walking… Mind you, it was always during weekend rush hours, so I attributed it to being…

Coffee Break: Café Myriade – Dominion Square

I’m going to let you in on a not so secret secret: there’s a “hidden” coffee shop in the Club Monaco on St Catherine street downtown Montreal. Unless you spend your time looking up to the sky, you won’t notice the tiny little sign saying Café Myriade hanging way above the street corner, but it’s…
