“Created in 2009, Boréal Coffee is a space dedicated to the culture of coffee. Our specialties (cappuccino, latte, mochaccino, latte macchiato, etc.) are savored in a cosy home-like setting, animated by our experienced baristas, and in which the focus is on encounter and dialogue. A far cry from the big chains, what’s important for us is to put people back into the centre – whether it’s in the way we work within our team or how we interact with clients. The opening of our own coffee-roasting plant in 2012 was another step towards ensuring the quality of our coffee as well as a way to strengthen our direct links with small producers and cooperatives.
Whether it’s to read (or snooze) on a couch, update your blog, chat to the guy next to you, stroll around town with a real cappuccino, or show off with your latte on your way home from work in the train, Boréal should be able to help you!”
