Cawfe Talk

As a self professed coffee junkie I have scoured the 4 corners of the globe in search of the perfect cuppa brew. Okay maybe not the 4 corners of the globe but in a city dominated by Starbucks, Blenz, Timmy's and countless other mediocre coffee joints, it's good to know there are a few gems out there. The names Prado Cafe, Elysian Room and 49th Parallel coffee roasters cafe may not elicit the same recognition among the masses but to the true coffee aficionado, a cuppa drip from them is truely a cuppa black mana from heaven. They are all nestled in nicely tucked away places never becoming too mainstream. They say drinking good coffee is akin to drinking good wine with hints of chocolate, peaches and apricots as flavours. So remember the next time you're at your local Blenz or Starbucks ordering a slo roasta notasta frappachinno with hints of soot and burnt ribs, I'll be at one of the noted cafes above enjoying a cup of Ethiopian Yirgacheffe.
