On September 24th, almost a thousand coffee fans attended our very first edition of Barista Fest. Our whole team wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who answered the call, in such impressive numbers, for the first edition of Barista Fest!
Thank you for sharing the event, for travelling to our shop, and for making it a great success! The whole team was touched by this incredible show of support!
Before reading on, check out our video going over the day of festivities!
That’s how many people answered the call and came to our coffee shop for Barista Fest! Seriously, we were totally amazed! You all came to discover and rediscover our coffee throughout the day, and we were blessed to be able to share this experience with the coffee lovers that share our passion!
During Barista Fest, we announced that we would be adding our very first Stone brand machine to our range of residential machines in the coming weeks! This high-quality espresso machine is designed for small spaces, and with its tiny footprint, can be tucked into any size kitchen to provide commercial-quality espressos right at home!
Alex also introduced our brand-new Barista Oat Beverage! It was launched online on October 5th, 2022! You can order it now, or come and try it in person at our coffee shop!
Over fifty people participated in our tasting workshops, that were offered at no cost! We also invited Kevin Gravel, one of our favourite coffee-based content creators, to show off his latte art technique with our trainer, Léa-Rose!
Petit Cake invited you to try their cupcakes!
Morso Pizzeria served up delicious Roman-style pizza!
Coffola handed out their 100% coffee chocolate bars, straight from Switzerland, which tasted like heaven!
Club Local served delicious cocktails made with its own Sainte-Marie rum, Cremaglace, and Les Îles triple sec!
Nantel provided the milk for all the free drinks served at the event!
This is your official notice that we will be hosting a second edition of Barista Fest in 2023! We cannot wait to see you again!

One of the questions that coffee experts probably hear the most is:“What’s the difference between Arabica and Robusta?” The two types of coffee plants are at opposite ends of the spectrum, and by blending the two together, we can achieve the best of both worlds.
