Coffee, Coffee, Coffee!

Lately, I’ve been enjoying:

Burundi Kibingo (49th) – syrupy body, sweet acidity, kiwi and strawberries.

Kenya Gakuyuini (Four Barrel) – slightly unripe peach, and this weird experience where the flavour creeps up the back of your throat. We call it the “wasabi experience”.

Ethiopia Sidamo Nekisse Micro Selection (49th) – OH MY GOD THIS COFFEE IS AMAZING! Raspberries in a cup, no joke. Come down to cafca and try some!

Peru Pangoa Micro Lot (Saltspring Island Coffee Co.) – surprisingly good. Melon and cherry sweetness, dark chocolate finish.

I’ll write some more after the jitters fade.




Honey, I’m Hooome!

I’ve been back since last Sunday, and man is it ever good to be back! I love Montréal to bits, but something about Vancouver just makes it home.

You can catch me in the upcoming weeks at CAFCA (140 East Esplanade) – my next shift is Tuesday morning, bright and early! 49th has changed their Organic Espresso lately as it’s a new harvest season, and while I’m not the biggest fan, it’s a welcome change as I was getting tired of the old blend. Hopefully as time goes on they’ll be able to fine-tune the roast to perfection.



Coffee problem solved!

First, the cafca shift – it was pretty slow, especially for a friday. Read more…
