                           Red fruit and intensely floral aromatics open the floodgates for a dynamic coffee filled                               with raspberry and Asian pear flavors with a smooth, buttery finish like a macadamia.
5. Matt Songberg - Independent (Social - Ethiopian Sidamo Ardi)
6. Kate Fraser -     Cafe Pyrus  (Reunion Island - Cannonball - Ethiopian Yirgacheffe, Peru, Columbian)
 **Great to see 5 out fo the 6 finalist using local GTA roasters**
