Need to Know


Sorry for the delay on this post, folks! I have had it all done for a little while, I was just out of town all weekend and didn’t have a chance to post it up. I’m sure you all of have been waiting patiently for it, coffee in hand, so here it is!

You’ve already heard the results from the survey about where the best places on campus to go for coffee are.

But are the results accurate? Are those TRULY the best places on campus to get coffee?

Personally, I will have to disagree. I like to think of myself as a bit of a coffee connoisseur, so to speak, so I take my coffee pretty seriously. And my top 3 are a little bit different from those of yesterday’s survey.

But enough talk about me. Let’s talk coffee. MY TOP THREE FAVOURITE COFFEES ON CAMPUS ARE….

#3: Second Cup’s Paradiso Dark

This coffee is an amazing dark roast that is nutty, aromatic, and all-around fantastic. It’s also organic and certified fair trade, which is certainly pretty awesome as well!

#2: Timothy’s & York University Cafeteria’s Las Nubes Medium Roast 

Available in a variety of roasts, Las Nubes coffee is awesome not only because of its rich taste and versatility, but also because of where it comes from! It is grown in a rainforest in Costa Rica known as Las Nubes, and it was donated to York University by Dr. Woody Fisher. The coffee is 100% Fair Trade Certified, and it tastes amazing!

And, finally, #1…(drumroll please)…

#1 La Prep’s Empire French Roast

La Prep "Empire" coffee is an organically-grown French dark roast that is certified Fair Trade. If you prefer a lighter roast, try the organically-grown Sierra Verde medium roast coffee!

This awesome dark coffee is my absolute favourite. How dark is it, you ask? Think of the darkest blend possible, and that is Empire. It is simply fantastic, and if you are a coffee lover, you’re sure to love it!

So there you have it – my favourite coffees on campus.

Have your own favourites? Comment them below! I’d love to try them out! 🙂
