Not Really Coffee!

This is not really a coffee thing except that I know that some of these people really do like their coffee. We know who you are! A triple anyone?

The LBS Gravel Battle 2017 is being held tomorrow (June 3, 2017), starting at 9:00 am,  and the staging area for the start and finish of the race will be right here in front of Art Brûlant.


For those from away, welcome to the Pontiac! Ride safe and good luck!

Featured Roast/Torréfaction de la semaine: It is back – Nicaraguan Maracaturra

I have the Nicaraguan Maracaturra back on for this week. Careful with this one in the grinder. Some grinders find the large size of the bean a problem.

More on this big bean here. Doing a search on this site for “Nicaragua” will also give you other references to this coffee.

“Art” at Art Brûlant: What’s Up? — Addendum!

Something else on the ‘artsy’ creative side of things that is now here at Art Brûlant is this.


Yes, I know it doesn’t quite have the presence of those big screens in the sports bars, but it does rotate images of spaces, landscapes, objects and places from here in the region. Right now the series of images are intended to coincide with the present exhibition of art work on the walls. There will be others.

These rotating images are also a part of the project  “Beyond the Back Door”.

“Art” at Art Brûlant: What’s Up?

Things continue to evolve here at Art Brûlant. Although the number of actual art exhibits has been reduced there is always a rotating selection of art on the walls.

There are also a number of group exhibitions to look forward to. There will be the Art Pontiac Residency Programme Exhibit in August. This is always a great show for high lighting interesting techniques and ideas. Right here in the Pontiac!

Another interesting exhibit to look forward to will be a focus on the Dumoine River by CPAWS (Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society) and their Summer 2017 Dumoine River Art Camp.  Artists!!!! Watch the deadline for participation submissions to this.

In the meantime there will be other art on the walls here at Art Brûlant.
