Bisgono Espresso Bar

Bisogno Espresso Bar
Address: 61 Sherbourne Street
Neighbourhood: Sherbourne&Adelaide

What's so special about Bisogno on Sherbourne?
It's like you step into someones main floor of an antique house. Not only do they have a long dining table,  and high backed dinning chairs, but adoring books shelves as well. Not the mention the back corner coffee table with matching vintage lounging sofas, it's only a matter of time before you pick up one of the national geographic magazines that lie around the cafe.
Don't be fooled by the decor, it's not just a fancy place to sit, these guys know their coffee, and they do it well.

Machine: La Marzocco Linea (2 Group)
Doser: Mazzer Robus
Turnover: Medium-Constant
Beans: Detour Punch Buggy, Finca La Perla, and Rufino
Music: Jazz, light music
Indie Coffee Passport: YES  

Von, owner of Bisogno Espresso Bar has transformed this ground level low ceiling storefront into a caffeince heaven for the void between Queen and St. Lawrence Market. He offers up to 3 different beans on any given day. He keeps the Rufino espresso (more northern Italian style), on this day a featured single-origin Guatemalan Finca La Perla , Punch Buggy (lighter sweeter espresso) both from Detour.

Detour's Guatemalan Finca La Perla

Verdict: balanced sweetness with more cocoa flavour, at the end you get this resounding mouth feel and texture similar to having eaten a ripe Bartlett pear, but just subtle hints of pear. But that grainy feel makes you want more.
