Has anyone ever tried the Black cat or Kid-O beans from Intelligentsia? Seems to be ever so popular so I wanted to see if anyone would like to share their experiences.

Thanks

I haven't used their beans, but I have had espresso from a Victoria cafe that uses (and sells) Black Cat. Personally I didn't see what all the fuss is about, but without knowing how fresh the beans were etc. it's difficult to judge.

My favourite commercially roasted coffees are still Vita and Dolce from Espresso Vivace.

Did you drive to get these Vita and Dolce beans? Since they are not available for shipping outside the US.

When I bought them Vivace was still shipping roasted coffee to Canada. A friend of a friend often comes up from Bellingham, so I may have to ask a favour of them.

Hi Zenmaster;
I was in Toronto last week and tried the Manic Cafe on College - they use Black Cat for all their shots and it was the best - my daughter who worked for Starbucks for 5 years in the early days took me there because she said it had the best coffee.

Well your posting says that you can buy Balck Cat at a cafe in Victoria. Please tell me where.

Thanks,
Bert
