Coffee in the Calgary Herald

The reputable John Gilchrist, Calgary’s top restaurant critic for both the Calgary Herald and CBC Radio 1, unleashed his top picks for an espresso in Calgary in the Herald (sorry, no online link!). There were no big surprises this year, with Bumpy’s in the top spot and Java Jamboree of Cochrane in second. Cadence, the shop I believe to have a ton of potential if they just worked a bit on their shots (maybe they have, but I haven’t been in awhile), placed third. After that, I’m not going to pay attention if he lists Beano with their 6 oz shots.

Hopefully there will be a day when all of the shops listed can really provide the city with quality espresso, but we have a ways to go yet.

49th Parallel El Salvador La Montaña
Excellent coffee for everyday drinking. Well expressed acidity and classic El Salvador profile.

Bulleit Bourbon
By far the best bourbon available in BC for the price. $35 for a bottle gets you the highest rye content bourbon on the market. Lots of spice and typical bourbon corn sweetness. Excellent on its own, but also makes a mean Old Fashioned. Better than Knob Creek in my books and pretty close to Woodford Reserve.
