Stopped in Bumpy's today for a tuna melt and owner John says "turn around," and there staring at me was a shelf of 49th Parallel beans. Epic and Organic Espresso and, from what I could see, three single origins. I assumed at first that Bumpy's had dropped Big Mountain, but no, they will offer both. Bumpy's is the first store in Alberta to stock 49th Parallel. So now in or near Calgary we can get Hines, Novo, Intelly, 49th, Vivace, and Josuma , as well as local small-batch from Big Mountain and the excellent new Mountain View Roasterie in Didsbury. Good times.

Well I had a similar experience in NYC about 3wks ago @ Cafe Grumpy's, they are using Epic, and had two Clovers as their drip machines and a Synesto for the Espresso. For the Clover their were using Counter Culture Coffee. So if you are ever their they are in Chelsea. Cheers
