The Experience that is Second Cup

Coffee is a serious business, but in the rush of the everyday, a lot of us don’t just sit down to really enjoy a cup, but we really should.

For the team here at Addicted, we are always searching out the best coffee for at home or on the go. So after our recent tasting at Second Cup with Coffee Expert Chris Sonnen we are loving what Second Cup is serving up, and here is why:

Second Cup’s new premium signature brew, Batch49 is top of the crop in terms of taste and quality, denoting the position of Canada on the 49th parallel. 
They select from the top 1 – 2% of the world’s production of coffee; the best quality 100% Specialty Grade Arabica beans. 100% of Second Cup coffee in café is certified by third parties to be socially and environmentally responsible.


Second Cup has shifted to small batch roasting, working with an award-winning Canadian specialty roaster. Second Cup’s artisanal approach to roasting takes more time and care, and creates a better tasting coffee as it develops and enhances all the flavour notes of every bean.
Each and every roast is tasted by Second Cup Coffee Expert, Chris Sonnen, and tested to unwavering standards, created specifically for that coffee.
They understand the bitter truth and encourage Canadians to choose better not bitter!

Now don’t just take our word for it, we want to offer two lucky readers an exclusive experience at Second Cup in Toronto, including a private tasting with coffee expert Chris Sonnen and of course coffee from Second Cup.

    I would love to win !!!!  Second Cup has always been a familiar face to me.  Although there is not one near me anymore, I don’t mind taking the drive to visit about half hour away!

    The coffee tasting would be a great experience to learn more about coffee and I really like how Second Cup has rebranded themselves!

    Over the years I have tried Second Cup coffee several times. I haven’t really been excited about it. I like a very strong cup of coffee. Although I don’t like a bitter cup of coffee. So you know I drink coffee from those other guys. I would love to attend this tasting and learn abput some of the new brews that Second Cup is introducing. And I’d like to have some of my coffee snobbery turn towards Canadian coffees. Thanks for the chance.
