Happy New Year; Fresh starts, new beginnings

Happy New Year!

Hope everyone rang in the 2014 in Wrecking Ball style, I'm talking about coffee not the singer.

This year, I decided against a top 10, I might have different feelings in the upcoming weeks, but here are my best bets.

Mercury Espresso
Te Aro
Dark Horse
Sam James Coffee Bar
Manic Coffee
Capital Espresso
Good Neighbour
Early Bird

A good representation of Toronto, I must admit I am partial to the East End, and will tend to frequent cafes in my neighbourhood of Leslieville.

This year I was able to travel around the world, and met many fellow writers, drinkers, and appreciators of coffee. I reached out and did my best to meet up with those that challenge my concepts, in as many cities as possible. It's been a great year offline, and I wish I had published more on the site, but my other projects pulled me in a different direction for 2013, as such many stories landed on the cutting floor, or were never revived.

I had some great coffee from amazing roasters, few of the memorable ones:
Phil & Seb (Costa Rican)
Transcend (Guatemalan)
Bows & Arrows (Kenyan)
Ritual (Kenyan)
George Howell (Rwandan)
Pilot (Ethiopian)
Tim Wendleboe (Ethiopian)

2014 you will definitely some more writing, more photos, and more Espresso Adventures.


  1. Espresso pots are stove top espresso makers that are sometimes referred to as percolators or Moka pots.

  2. It’s nice to know that you travel just to meet your fellow writers, drinkers and coffee lovers. That was a great effort huh! Hope we can meet some other time  . As you know I’m a great fan of drinking coffee. I love my coffee that I make in my best coffee maker , it really extract the perfect taste of coffee I wanted. Anyway, Mercury Espresso Bar has a perfect taste of espresso I tasted when I went in Toronto.

  7. Hi, I think a good coffee depends on the perfect brew. That's why at first you ensure the quality of your coffee percolator. If you need this, you can visit here. I take mine from here.

  8. Ultimately, the looks of the machine, the usability and the convenience, the quality of the espresso that the machine can make, and the cost of the espresso maker are some qualities that can help you to rate the machine.
