The Bloody Caesar is a wildly popular Canadian cocktail. What started out as a Bloody Mary, Canadians took and added the one simple, but never without, ingredient; clam juice. Not only did this drink originate in Canada, it was conceived in, of all places, Calgary. A western city where the great Canadian plains transition into the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. Colloquially called "Cowtown".
"Cowtown" is in fact, a full on cosmopolitan, metropolitan, soaring and kinetic city. Bubbling right under that Big Oil façade is an effervescent food, arts and music scene, with a Rocky Mountain super chill vibe and a deadly sense of recreation. It also gets an enviable 332 sunshine days a year. And it's no wonder, then, that we find three friends creating exceptional coffee that, as they say, "inspire wonder and warmth".
Meet Ben, Jeremy and Justin, a national award winning team, whose hard work, superb roasts and attention to detail have sophistically and deliciously crafted Monogram into what it is today. Always smiling and honing their craft, these three are brilliantly bringing style, dedication, craftsmanship, education and recreation together in every single roast; every single cup. And it's definitely worth noting, they bring in a heck of a lot of wins home when competing.
ModRec brings you Series 11: TWO winning roasts from Cowtown's Monogram Coffee.
