Café of the Future in Calgary!

On Thursday, May 12th, Second Cup Coffee Co.™ officially unveiled its first-ever café of the future in Calgary at 1919 Southland Drive SW. The new Second Cup Coffee Co.™ design reflects a new independent spirit, a commitment to the world's finest coffee, and the company’s vision to be the coffee brand most passionately committed to quality and innovation. The welcoming café revolves around the company's brand pillars of superior quality, optimism, collaboration, creativity and community, and focuses on the individual customer experience. The new café is the 12th new concept Second Cup Coffee Co.™ to be opened in Canada and represents an important milestone in the company's three-year strategic plan, showcasing the Second Cup obsession with bringing the ultimate coffee experience to Canadians.

 
They're bringing the true meaning of a Coffee Bar to us with their new features that include:

Slow Bar: where Second Cup Coffee Co.™ blends art and science for the ultimate cup of coffee. This is where handcrafted beverages shine with an interactive seating area that allows customers to connect with baristas, hone their coffee tasting skills, and learn about coffee and the process of making a perfect cup. The Slow Bar features an expanded portfolio of the world’s most exceptional, specialty coffees exclusive to Second Cup Coffee Co.™ including estate blends as well as light-roast, limited-edition microlot beans. These coffees will be rotated throughout the year to ensure the peak of freshness and quality. Customers can enjoy these exceptional blends made from one of two revolutionary brewing technologies: - Pour-Over produces a noticeably more delicate and complex brew than conventional drip machines. This handcrafted, customized technique is popular with coffee connoisseurs.
- Steampunk, a ground-breaking coffee and tea brewing system, is true theatre in motion. Artful craftsmanship meets innovative engineering and delivers unprecedented extraction, temperature control and thermal stability for a great coffee that can be precisely tailored to specific tastes.


Milk Bar where dairy options are “on tap” in a fun custom design.


 Multiple seating options to address needs of customers, whether they’re looking for a private area to work, a table for visiting with friends, or a communal experience at the Slow Bar.


At this event I was given a media gift bag that included a $50 gift card that I'm going to pass on to a lucky reader of my blog so they can go out to the Second Cup Braeside and have a fantastic experience like I had the chance to enjoy.

I'm going to be giving away this $50 Gift Card from Second Cup. Winner will be announced on Wednesday, May 25th at 10:00pm - Comment in this post to be entered to win!

OOH Carlos you know all the magic words! Coffee, specialty, Second Cup, and teasing everyone with the photo of the milk bar! Any time we were in Toronto Second Cup was the first place my mother would go, it was their first location.. I however wasn't a coffee fan back then haha. She was very happy when locations started popping up all over Canada it was her go to coffee shop and now it's mine was thrilled when the Flat White made it's appearance on the menu a few years ago. Now who wants a coffee? me! Thanks for the chance!
