New Coffee Roasts at Take Five Café:
Terra Firma

At Take Five Café, we take coffee seriously. This fall, we’re introducing a new coffee roast to our drip coffee offerings – the Terra Firma. It’s a slightly darker roast, perfect for those November mornings where rain seems to be the only constant.

The Terra Firma is a Fair Trade, Organic Coffee that originates from Guatemala, Peru and Ethiopia and is grown in the Antigua, Andres and Sidamo regions. It is fully washed, semi-dried, grown at an altitude of 3,500 to 6,500 feet above sea level and features the following flavour characteristics:

Aroma: Subtle roast profile with dark chocolate notes and toasted almonds

Acidity + Body: Both Good

Flavour: Clean and rich with strong notes of dark chocolate and toasted almonds with a subtle hint of sweet dark cherries to finish.

So this November, when you need a change of pace and something comforting to start your morning right, stop by anyone of our locations and grab a fresh cup of Terra Firma. It’s bound to start your day on the right track.

And while summer has whizzed by, iced coffees have been enjoyed and beach days lived to the fullest, our test kitchen has been cooking up some exciting new dishes, and they’re making their way to our Gastown Café for everyone to enjoy.

Coffee by day. Wine by Night. Now, (more…)
