I really have high hopes for Myriade and I do think the whole team will be instrumental in what I tend to call "Montreal's Coffee Renaissance." It just feels like all the pieces of the puzzle are now in place. As I'm not a coffee professional, what I see is the exact type of enthusiasm which can make culinary coffee into a local movement. It's not about markets and numbers. It's about passion, engagement, social significance.
James Golick and Daniel Haran also sound pretty enthusiastic.

Not to be too self-serving but here are two blogposts I wrote about Myriade:
I'm sure there will be many more blog- and forum posts about Myriade before week's end.

I am heading to Montreal in a couple of weeks and I am really looking forward to visiting Myriade.  I actually booked a hotel near Veritas expecting to spend much time there, but I guess I have to  split my time between Anthony's new place and old place.

I would be interested in a sneak preview of the equipment setup at Myriade - expresso machine, grinders, and how he makes non-espresso coffee.

I really like the new place. I feel that Anthony's passion about coffee (and Scott's)
permeates the place. (which Veritas is sadly left without...) That man is very happy about his new digs and it shows!
I am looking forward to going back many times and bringing people along.
I was amazed by the taste of the espresso coming out of the mirage... it is totally different then the synesso, very thrilling.

Long live Myriade

Oh yeah they know their tea too!

Thanks Chris for the ping. It got me 30 visits, which helped me reach the largest number of visits on my main blog!
The allongé today was just a thing of beauty. Special blend. Not sure if I'm allowed to say what it is.
And traffic is picking up, at the café. You can just tell that the place will have a big impact on Montreal's coffee scene.

Been to Myriade.
Love Myriade.
The space: is small and cozy.
But most importantly, the coffee was amazing.
I had a close to perfect caps, anda nice long allonge (the real stuff), no over extraction, fruity (definitely some orange and floral notes to it, dry).
The staff/owners are very capable and knowlegeable, leaving very little space for improvisation.  Everything is calculated so you get consistently great coffee.
Myriade is a must to the coffee scene in Montreal.  It brings new ways and method to enjoy coffee, such as syphon and pour over.
In a word, there's a "Myriade" of ways to enjoy your favorite fix.
Congrats to my friends Anthony and Chris :-)
Cheers,
JF

I headed straight to Myriade when I arrive in Montreal today (Nov 11).  For some reason I thought it was on Rue Bishop instead of one street west on Mackay.  

Thanks to Anthony and Scott for the great coffee (latte and a siphon pot). Siphon is my favourite brewing method at home, a bit ahead of press-pot because it brews hotter. I now have some tips from Anthony on the grind I should be using.  

The place has a quality feel to it - from the bar setup to the myriade of brewing equipment to the exposed brick wall.  I think I counted three separate menus.

Worth going back to before I leave Montreal on Thursday.

I went to Myriade last week. Great location next to Concordia University. All the text messaging students should result in a lot of traffic (and money).

I had a Guatamaln Allonge (Luongo). I think it's one of the new 49th blends. It was prepared perfectly on an almost perfect machine (Mirage). Definitely one of the best I've experienced in Montreal.

Still, I like the variety of blends offered at JF's (Caffe in Gamba). Also, when JF gets a fresh shipment of Black Cat and pulls it on his Classic Faema, it's tough to beat.

Veritas has the great backdrop of Old Montreal, a fantastic Synesso 3-group, super classy atmosphere and an amazing lunch menu.

All three places really compliment eachother well and serve different areas of town. Visiting all of them on a Saturday morning makes for a great coffee crawl (and a great caffeine buzz). I'm glad to have so many choices this year! Same time last year we were a coffee wasteland.

Subject: Café Crawl (was: Cafe Myriade)
 

Café crawls are a lot of fun and those three places makes a lot of sense as an itinerary.
These three places really are "fitting the puzzle."
Now, what we need to do, is get the community together.
So... Are we doing a crawl this weekend?
