This is a weird place and to be honest after being there I still don’t know what the hell is going on there. It is very sheik decor and a colorful scheme that invites you in. All the employees are wearing black ties and are very friendly. I am not sure, but I think they are a Swiss company that sells home machines using these “espresso filled capsules” and they use the coffee shop to try and pursued you on how great their machines are. First off, I got a $7.00 latte and got to choose from what capsule I wanted. I went with the Fortissio Lungo that had some decent flavor, but was way to hot and was ready only 60 seconds after I ordered it. I don’t know why it was so hot. Don’t these machines have a “don’t burn the shit out of my mouth” button? They gave me the sales pitch like it was a timeshare as I drank. Apparently these capsules allow you to keep ground coffee sealed without loosing the flavor. Makes sense, but I would just invest $10 in a grinder and not the $750 in their shitty machines. It’s a racket, and I would avoid this place, unless you like to see tourists spend ridiculous amount of money on something stupid. Then this is your place.

I only heard about this place an hour before I had to leave town, so I did not get a chance to hang out there long. Which really sucks, because I loved it. Really cool place, with lot’s of light, interesting layout and really nice people (I guess that is redundant since we are in Canada.) They have a strong machine, good barista’s and very good coffee. If this was Seattle, it would have a hard time lifting with the heavyweights, but for Saskatoon this is a great choice.
