Winner of the Macro Roaster of the Year 2015 award by Roast Magazine, Reunion Island Coffee Roasters owner, Peter Pesce and son Adam, have opened their first retail store, the Reunion Island Coffee Bar at 385 Roncesvalles.
Peter and Adam have prided themselves on working closely with farmers and are very serious about maintaining relationships with their coffee producers from around the world to ensure the coffee is pure, authentic and sustainable. For 20 years Reunion Island Coffee Roasters have provided Canadians with a limitless variety of sustainably sourced and roasted coffees.
The bright white subway tiled store is minimalist, which is good if you want to plugin and get work done. It’s also equipped with the very latest in coffee brewing technology, the Modbar, where baristas aren’t hidden from customers as they craft their customer’s favourite coffees.
A coffee menu that focuses on fuss free coffee, no sprinkles, no whipping cream, no trendy seasonal spices, just coffee that’s pure and authentic. The coffee menu has all your favs, but try the unique Cold Brew and Tonic – it’s a smooth coffee cocktail with the kick of caffeine.
In addition to the traditional variety of muffins and morning pastries, they also carry Sullivan and Bleeker jar cake – a great mini sized dessert for those afternoon or after dinner cravings. Flavours include S’mores, Chocolate, Red Velvet to name a few.
To celebrate their 2o years anniversary they will be hosting a community event on October 17 featuring performances by local talent, Gavin Gardiner (Wooden Sky), and Brave Shores. There will be a variety of coffee and coffee beverage specials throughout the day, so make sure to come out and enjoy!
