Winnipeg’s Best Coffee

Last week CBC Information Radio launched a contest to find WINNIPEG’S BEST COFFEE.

CBC listeners took to Facebook to nominate their faves, and WE were among them!! We were awed. Gobsmacked. Thrilled that not only did we come to mind when coffee is mentioned, but that people then took the time to submit our name. We were happy just to be included among the 25 independent shops that made the first list.

But it didn’t end there. The list was shortened to 16 for round 2, and Cafe D’Amour was still hanging around! CBC then had listeners vote, again, to narrow the list further. There were some pretty big names on there. Stella’s, Black Pearl, Espresso Junction, Ray & Jerry’s!

Voting lasted over the weekend, and the top 5 were announced on Monday!

You can imagine our excitement when at 7:15 Monday morning we see OUR NAME listed in the TOP 5!

As a result of being in the final five I have my first ever radio interview tomorrow morning, which will air on CBC information radio Thursday morning (I’ll try not to let my nerves get the better of me).  And on Friday CBC will crown the BEST COFFEE IN WINNIPEG!

Honestly, it doesn’t matter what happens after this point. We are still only  in our first 2 years of business and knowing that our hard work is being recognized by our customers, and by the community at large, is a great little motivator to keep doing what we’ve been doing.

Thank you so much for your ongoing support. If you keep coming by we will keep putting love in every cup…
