Canada, eh?

Happy Pre-Canada Day!

Yes, we will be celebrating the birth of our nation by bringing coffee to all the country folks as per usual.  Downtown folks will have to wait until Thursday but I doubt coffee will be top of mind what with choosing a red and white ensemble for the day and the anticipation of the celebration.

Sulawesi Kalossi
is our new offering for the Coffee Of The Month and Jeff From Single Origin has given us these cupping notes: aroma notes of charcoal, earth, heavy body, medium acidity, flavour notes of toffee and brown sugar, overall syrupy mouthfeel.  Well! I am enjoying the nice smooth easy taste of it and I think it's a perfect morning coffee and can't come up with any fancy descriptors today.

We will be incommunicado during the period of July 31st to August 14th because Big Red and the Queen Bean have a secret mission in Quebec.  FYE only but they will be infiltrating the hallowed halls of celebrated cheese mongers, micro beer brewers, and extracting (by nefarious means) long-kept secrets of the local cuisine.  While BR and QB are swimming in maple syrup, the afore mentioned markets will be manned and womanned by our trusty sidekicks who will probably raise the coffee bar in Feisty Heroine`s absence.

Reminder:  We re-use all the packaging if gently used and the tops are not ripped off (they are zip-locked only, not sealed).

Reminder #2:  Ordering by no later than 5 PM Mondays will guarantee happy roasters who will speak glowingly of said orderers as it is difficult to accommodate late orders.
