Good Coffee Makes Everything Better

Sip Independent: Good Coffee Makes Everything Better

We find ourselves relying on the convenience of the drive-thru for our daily wake-up beverage. Have you noticed how long and slow moving these lineups are nowadays? Not to mention that idling your vehicle in a drive-through wastes gasoline and causes air pollution that is otherwise avoidable.

How about parking your car and seek out a better cup? Good coffee is a lifelong passion at the following independently owned establishments and it shows.



The Espresso Post

Located in a heritage building in downtown Collingwood, Espresso Post and its baristas have won numerous awards and pride themselves on their craft. Their signature Postmaster’s Roast is a full-bodied and aromatic seven-origin blend. Espresso Post offers sandwiches, panini, soup and salad plus fresh baked goods. And now you can enjoy their heated patio.


Good Grief Coffee

Good Grief is both a stylish cafe on Thornbury’s main street and a wholesale coffee roaster and supplier. Custom roasts include Kenya Muranga, an easy-drinking bright bean with plum and caramel notes, and Ethiopian Bedhatu Jibicho, sourced from a female-run farm and bursting with rich notes of blueberry. Good Grief also makes all pastries in-house.


The Creemore Coffee Company

There’s no better way to guarantee freshness than to buy your coffee direct from a small-batch, dedicated local roaster. The Creemore Coffee Company offers shade-grown beans, which mature slowly resulting in less bitterness. There’s no cafe/retail location at present but their thriving online store offers a big selection of single-origin organic beans including Sumatran (Indonesian), Cloud Forest (Latin American) and Canadian Maple.
