Cherry Bomb

Neighbourhood: Ronsecvalle
website, @twitter, Tel: (416) 516-8212

Cherry Bomb has been an institution - taking over the reigns of this coffee sampling mecca known as Ron-Cees. A quick stroll away from Queen W& High Park it's ideal for those that enjoy the outdoors and family-orientated spaces.  Locals might commute here on weekends to taken in this neighbourhood filled with Polish/Ukrainian bakeries and wholesome eateries.

A fan favourite of mine - Cherry Bomb, with its' in-house bakery makes me stop in my tracks to drink a cup of coffee.
Be sure to sit at the window and people watch the traffic, or construction of the century - revitalizing Ronsecvalles...

The Basics:
Machine: Elektra Classic 
Grinder: Mazzer Major
Beans: Cherry Bomb Espresso

Composition: Dark City Espresso Blend (Africans - Ethiopian, Kenyan, Asia (Sumatra), and then to balance El Salvador 
Dark City Coffee Roasters
Scarborough, ON

Verdict: Complex, nutty, earthy aroma. Slightly sweet cherry. Pleasant.
Besides LIT, it's my go-to in the West end, especially after or before brunch dates.
Happy Espresso Adventures
