Dave I'm interested about the local roasters you would suggest.... I mostly buy my beans in Gatineau, what would you recommend in Ottawa. I just find it hard to get a clear answer from the employees as to: how fresh the beans you buy really are.

If you visit a roaster and they will not tell you when the beans were roasted...

Walk away.

In my travels, I have encountered 2 places - one in Oakville and one in Regina... \"roasters\" that had \"fake\" roasters in the cafe -- honest to goodness... fake roasters... props... not connected to anything... and a layer of stanky-ass coffee in the \"cooling tray\" coated with dust.

Despite my inner warnings, I tried the espresso at both places and it tasted like battery acid.

Never again.

Thanks Dave for the info... I am still scratching my head... I guess I need to take the plunge now.

I will most likely be coffee from Bridgehead initially since my wife work next door @ MEC in Westboro.

Cheers,
Fred.

HI,
Just came across this exchange while looking for a supplier on my coffee break!
I am a loyal Mokita user. My first one lasted almost twenty years and this last one just died on my and it is at least 15 years old. It is the Mokita super and is the same as the one for 299.00. It is a great machine and unless they have changed any of the technology, the best coffee for the buck. I find some of the other brands still priced by name. This little Mokita is superb and has made thousands of caps!
