I'm in Saskatoon.

Collective Coffee, Caffe Sola, and Museo are my favourite espresso joints in Saskatoon (in that order).  City Perks is another favourite, but the espresso just isn't as as good as the others -- although I hear some changes are coming there and need to get back there soon.

Welcome to CG, one and all.
A little search tells me your fair city has a Metropolitan population around 260, 000, and is the largest city in Saskak..Sasct, err...your province! LOL
Having 4 excellent cafe's is a LOT of good coffee, for your area.

Are they into the "pour-over" craze, as a lot of the newer cafes do, here in the states?

Agreed with your choices. Collective Coffee is my favorite espresso based drink by far. City Perk I think is brewing Leven's Coffee Roasters as of late. We get Leven's monthly coffee subscription delivered right to our door. I find for local roasters, Leven's is king. Museo's coffee is way to sour for my taste, and The Roastery is just gross.

No real Pour-over craze here. The shops listed above do French press as far as I can tell. I think they do still offer a pour-over as an option.

According to most people in this area, the epitome of coffee is Tim's or McDonalds.  It's hard to find anyone interested in espresso in Saskatchewan.

And it's hard to find anyone interested in the Roughriders, or is it Rough Riders here in Nashville, TN USA! :>D
I know there are ...or were two teams in the CFL with basically the same nickname.

Back on topic, at least you have a few choices. There are many cities here of equivalent size that have ZERO choice but the Mermaid.

Ah, thanks for the perspective Robert!  Yes, Saskatoon is an anomaly as far as third wave shops per capita go.  I think Victoria BC and Halifax NS might be the next closest in Canada, though I imagine Victoria has a slight edge on us.

My mum was from "Winterpeg." Did I already mention that? If so, blame it on old age.
I have several Canadian friends, and have always had a WARM spot in my heart for our brothers and sisters up north.

It's funny how so much of the drawn map is oriented east-west, when really, culturally speaking the commonality is north-south, especially in the Canadian Prairies south to Oklahoma, TN, TX, etc...  Likewise with Vancouver, Seattle, Portland, SF...

If you ever find yourself in Winnipeg their scene is growing nicely too!
