I was part of a media tour on September 21 that was graciously hosted by Krups in Vancouver. We were all toured around the city visiting 5 of the top cafes as voted by the public, our task was to judge and to choose the best café of all we were going to visit. The criteria for judging was the Ambience of each café, Presentation of the coffee, Taste and most of all how each of the Espresso’s were prepared. This Krups Kup of Excellence tour was sponsored by Krups and was held across Canada from Halifax, Montreal, Toronto, Calgary and Vancouver honouring the best café in each city as voted by the public and then judged by a group of media in each city.
The winning café in Vancouver was Bump N Grind, the winning café in Montreal was Cafe Java Mythe, in Toronto it was Te Aro Roasted, in Calgary it was DeVille Luxury Coffee & Pastries and in Halifax the winner was Java Blend Coffee Roasters.
