Detour Coffee in Dundas, ON. was created by Troll
This place is located just outside of Hamilton, ON. They're more or less a roasting operation and not so much a cafe, but they are open to the public and supply alot of fantastic cafes around the GTA.

I decided to stop in on a Monday afternoon on my way home from work and ran into Kaelin, who owns the place. He told me they were closed... normally open from Thurs-Sunday (if i remember correctly), but told me he had no problem selling me beans. I grabbed a pound of punch buggy that were roasted that morning. While I was there he asked me if I wanted to try a shot, and poured me a single origin from Ethiopia. I was floored with the fruitiness of it. He described it as a 'fun' espresso shot every now and then, but really suggested it for milk based drinks.

I gave the Punch Buggy Blend 4 days and just opened her up today. I was expecting to fiddle around with Rocky to get her dialed in and was expecting to throw away a few shots. Turns out my first shot was PERFECT! Tons of crema.

I'm not as descriptive as others when it comes to cupping or describing flavours but I thoroughly enjoyed the blend and would definately return to buy more when I'm out that way. I'm hoping Kaelin's business thrives and we see him in Dundas for years to come. Next time I'll ask how he got about naming the blend.

Thanks for that report! I would encourage anyone and everyone to report on their favorite cafes - even ones that they encounter in their travels.

Detour is also one of my favourite GTA roasters. Here's a little trip report from my travels ... http://blog.coffeestork.com/?p=211
