I'm Robin. I"ve been working down at Queen Mercury for, let's say, a while, and this is my first blog. What can I say, I'm not a blogger. I'd be categorized as techno-unsavvy, I don't even really know how to download music. Seriously. So instead of this computer mumbo-jumbo, come in, have a chat, bring me a mix CD, and we've still got the Brazil Varghina Sul de Minas so have a shot, it's tasty.

Hello Babies, my name is Katie. I never blog. Really. I've been working here since September and I"ve never written a blog. I guess I am just a shy guy.

So anyway.

This weekend is NXNE, right? It's only Friday and I'm totally tired. I'm a pretty lucky guy though working at Mercury Espresso Bar...this morning Neil pulled me a shot of the single origin Brazil that he is using in the competition and it really made my tired guy blues melt away. Maybe if you're lucky he will give you some of it too. I dunno.

If not we've got a bunch of other good stuff! You know about it!

Hi everyone,
This is lil' slugger here to tell you that Mercury Espresso Bar has once again been nominated for the illustrious Krups Kup of Excellence Award. In previous years, judges who knew very little about espresso would come into all the coffee joints in all of Canada (even all of the different Tim Hortons) and, well, judge us - harshly (nah, just kiddin' they were nice).


This year they're expanding beyond the Krups Kremlin and allowing the masses to decide who has the best espresso. That's right, you! The people! You can do it!

You can even vote for us if you like!
