MAKE Coffee + Stuff

Last weekend I was at the Prairie Regional Barista Championships. Winnipeg serving as host of the event shows how far coffee culture in Manitoba has come. I’ve had the chance to try many of the new places. One that I visited last year but haven’t been back to is MAKE Coffee + Stuff on Corydon. MAKE is nestled in a small store front locale, and offers a quiet break from the general bustle of the Corydon Avenue strip. While offering…Continue readingMAKE Coffee + Stuff

Espresso Junction – Johnston Terminal

Espresso Junction is now closed. It’s place has been taken by Harrisons. Earlier this year, when I started working the Norwood area, I was glad to find Finales nearby.

Parlour Coffee Main Street North

I originally wrote this post about Parlour Coffee about a year and a half ago.  I wrote it for bubsblurbs, my other, no longer extant, blog, but thought that it belonged here.  Obviously some of the things in the post have changed, but the coffee from Parlour is still every bit as excellent. One of the joys of working smack dab in the middle of downtown Winnipeg at place like Holy Trinity, is the number of places one can get to…Continue readingParlour Coffee Main Street North
