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.

I went into Bumpy's today as well, after hearing through the grapevine the 49th Parallel would be there.  PLEASE, try a double espresso even if you normally do not.  You will be blown away.

You will probably have to ask for 49th Parallel specifically, but hopefully they ask you if you'd prefer Big Mountain or 49th Parallel.  

I look forward to buying some beans once our espresso machine is out of the shop.

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
