Café Tour

Cafés = community

Ok, so everyone loves coffee, right?  (Except for those weirdos who don't).  You start your day with it, you relish it, you need it.  There it is, in your cup, every day, no matter what.  But how much do you really know about it?  Where does it come from, who harvested the beans, what's the roasting process, how did your café source it, what's your Barista's favourite band?  On the Café Tour your Guide will walk you around and visit 6 different cafés, try different coffees, teach you to make latte art, learn the story behind every cup and most importantly show you how in Montréal, cafés represent different communities.  From a surfer's café, to a music lover's café, to where local fashionistas get their daily dose, the Café Tour will feed your thirst, your stomach and your mind!
