The wicked awesome folks at Beanstock and Breville have been running their Master Classes for the past few months. I first mentioned this back in my October 4th post. If you’re fortunate enough to live in Toronto, Calgary, Vancouver or Montreal then visit their website to sign up for one of the few remaining spots. … More Breville MasterClass Review
I had a great conversation recently with a cafe owner about how critical milk-steaming is. He’s always a great source of wisdom and I know that he has been using CREAM pitchers for quite some time. I feel like I have known that this is such a significant part of creating a truly exceptional hand-crafted … More CREAM Pitcher Review
It’s November 1st which means my buddy over at Jellyfish Coffee has released his latest edition of the #CalgaryCoffeeMenu. This month I had the privilege of co-curating the menu alongside Brandon & Nelson. If you’re new to thebloom.coffee then you might not have heard of the Calgary Coffee Menu before.

I have an entire folder on my iPhone dedicated to a dozen or so different coffee-related apps. Over the years I have downloaded a number of free & paid-for apps and most of them don’t end up getting used more than a handful of times.

Most days after work and on the weekend you’ll find me in a pair of Levis 510’s and a t-shirt…but not just any t-shirt. I gotta say that one of the things I love about specialty coffee are all the amazing t-shirts that roasters and coffee companies put out. Over the past few years I … More Coffee T-Shirts

It’s not every day that I get excited about a coffee & beer collaboration. Usually because most of these beers are stouts or porters and I’m just not a dark-beer-and-roasty-espresso-flavour kind of guy. I like my IPA’s, Session Ales, and maybe a Pale Ale but nothing much darker than that. So last week when I … More Monogram/O.T. Brewing – Coffee Beer
My buddy Brandon over at JellyFish Coffee has released the October edition of the Calgary Coffee Menu! How fitting that it’s release date also happens to be International Coffee Day!
