Happy caffeinated week!
Attention coffee lovers! We know perfectly there is nothing on this earth quite like that first sip of coffee in the morning, we have good news for all of you. On s’en food brings back the second annual week of independent coffee shops: J’aime Mon Café. Craftsmen of coffee from Quebec city, Montreal and many other parts of Quebec will get together to share experiences, products, join the community, and to give as much visibility as possible. From April 24 to the 29th, Quebec’s coffee shops will be participating in exciting new events for all coffee lovers: an Instagram photo contest, promotions and discounts all week, workshops and a lot of coffee.
Instagram Picture Contest!
J’aime Mon Café’s Instagram contest is back with even more great prizes to win! Like last year, participants only need to publish a photo of their coffee on Instagram and use the #jaimemoncafé2017 hashtag to be eligible. You have a chance to win one of the three grand prizes: 1 year of Montreal’s Barista “micro-torréfacteur” coffee, 1 Barista workshop for 4 people, or 1 set containing two manual coffee makers and the book Cafés. The author of the book, Jean-Michel Dufaux, is a famous globetrotter and gourmet traveler and this year J’aime mon café is fortunate to have him as a spokesperson.
It’s Back! The day of the indie Coffee shop!
On April 29, as was the case last year, the participating businesses will be offering coffee of your choice at $1 without milk and $2 with milk. Newly this year, participants will be able to enter a new category other than “Café” and “Microtorrefacteur”, “Friends of Coffee.” This category is the answer to the demand of the catering businesses who wanted to participate in the event last year that also offer an excellent coffee experience. J’aime mon Café will welcome all businesses with a service area of coffee roasting, artisanal and local; thus, bakeries, delicatessens, chocolate shops and their boutiques will be participating in all events.
Another date to note: on Sunday April 23rd, the Barista Jam launches at the mythical Café Déppaneur in the Mile-end. The baristas of different cafes will take turns to make coffee, quite simply! Come here to taste their creations for free, and take the opportunity to meet J’aime mon café’s spokesperson, Jean-Michel Dufaux! Meet the crew of your favorite coffee shop and enjoy the live Music of Café Déppaneur!
