This Week’s Featured Roast/Torréfaction de la semaine: Ethiopian Sahama Micro-Lot Gr 1

Another coffee that has been requested for a return, the Ethiopian Sahama Micro-Lot goes to the very roots of our favourite cuppa! Tastes that are genetically some of the oldest anywhere!

I have more of this one here.

Seasonal Hours Change – Changement des heures d’ouverture

At this time of year Fall has set in with its colours, shorter days, cooler temperatures and the early dark, it also seems that here in the Pontiac things slow down as we get ready for the cold and snow of winter. Getting ready for hibernation?

This being said the Saturday afternoons here at Art Brûlant can be very quiet. So it is time to shorten the shop hours on that day. Saturday!

So for the foreseeable future the Saturday hours will be:

10:00 am to 3:00 pm

All other hours will be the same as noted on this page.




A cette période de l’année avec ses couleurs, des jours plus courts, des températures plus fraîches et le début des années sombres, il semble aussi que ici dans Pontiac les choses  se ralentir. Se préparer pour l’hibernation?

Il est donc temps de raccourcir les heures d’atelier ce jour-là. Samedi!

Pour l’avenir prévisible les heures samedi seront:


Toutes les autres heures seront les mêmes comme indiqué sur cette page.

Featured Roast/Torréfaction de la semaine: Yemen Mocha Ismaili

Another Yemen Mocha to savour. The Yemen Mocha Ismaili is the latest of the featured roasts here at Art Brûlant. Tiny little beans with a great deal going for them.

I have previously talked a little about the history of coffee in Yemen, as it refers to the other Yemen coffee that we carry, the Yemen Mocha Mattari. You will find some of that here and here. The Yemen Mocha Mattari was also a part of the blend that made up our last feature the Mocha Java Re-Take.

One of the highest grown coffees in Yemen, at altitudes of over 2000 metres (6000 – 7000 ft), the Ismaili is one of the countries most coveted. Even locally!

This is a coffee with great complexity. Not the sweetest, but rather spicy, full flavours.
