Food for Thought: Fresh (Bloor)

New installment: Brunch Sundays to insprie...
Where did I venture to on my lazy Sundays....
 
Fresh by Juice for Life
Address: 222 Bloor Street West
Neighbourhood: Annex
website

Fresh by Juice for life has been an Annex charm for years - since 1999 to be exact. Serving only Vegan style menu, with fresh blends of smoothies. Focusing on sourcing locally and their sustainable footprint, it's a conscious decision by mastermind Ruth Tal - and backed by a team of 3 other like-minded investors.
Why choose to go to Fresh?
Local ingredients, made with caring cooks and to boot it's vegan - which pleases a majority of my friends.
Inclusion is key when you live in this multi-cultural city, and vegetables can't go wrong here..... veggies unite!


Down to the Coffee:
Machine: 2 group Elektra
Grinder: Unknown
Beans: Fresh Blend
Composition: Special Custom Blend for Medium Roasted Beans
Roaster: The Fresh Coffee Network
Located: Toronto

Verdict: Balanced brightness with a dry finish. Couldn't decipher the composition, but I'm thinking that they had a couple of African coffees to give a nice smooth chocolate flavour, but a good acid: to the tone of meyer lemon, where you get hints of tangy lemon with citrus finish.

Considering places in TO serve up half-ass espresso at restaurants, or have "barista" partially trained. Decent.
What did I order?
Summerlicious tribute by Fresh,
Daily Special of a bowl: Ninja (on Rice)
Daily Drink: Chi-Spa
