Has anyone tried the 2 roasters on Matheson in Mississauga?
Barocco coffee company. And java works.
I'm getting tired of ordering online.

I picked up a bag of espresso from Javaworks and wasn't pleased as it wasn't really freshly roasted. (measured in days past roast date not weeks). Barocco looks interesting... until now I had never seen it. I work/live in Mississauga and I feel like there really isn't an indie coffee scene.

There is also Muldoon's own on Timberlea and Reunion Island Coffee bordering Oakville. You can find Carvalho,s coffee alsonin Oakville. These are all roasters. For the espresso fans I recommend Pig Iron Roasters.

Muldoons doesn't have espresso.  The say the dark roast is what they reccomend but it is nasty.  Just like drinking charcoal.
I emailed pig iron a few times with no reply.  I was wondering if I could pick up from there

Good Evening Miguel,

Barocco Coffee Company has some really nice roasts for you to consider. I would highly recommend giving them a shot. As to how I know this:

I used to work for an espresso bar called "B Espresso Bar" which was at the time owned by the general manager of Barocco Roastery. The GM himself had been in the coffee industry with B for many years before finally making the switch over, and I have to say they are very dedicated to their roasts.

If you would like to try them out prior to buying their roasted beans, just visit either of the B Espresso locations (RCM - Royal Conservatory of Music OR Queen/Jarvis nearby George Restaurant) - in addition to B, I do know that they are being served around other places as well. I am personally fan of their 70% arabica/ 30% robusta blend.

At B, we used (used to meaning when I used to work there) to get our freshly roasted beans weekly as to make sure it remained fresh. In addition, the sales reps would come in regularly to quiz the barista to see if we knew what we were doing as well.

Long story short, definitely worth the try. As for Reunion Island Coffee out of Oakville, I had them near Cabbagetown, at an espresso bar named "Red Rocket Fuel" and I am also very impressed with them as well. RRF stands by their quality to a point where it is their house brand. I was having a conversation with one of their managers the other day and he said it flat-out, when you think RRF, want you to think Reunion Island, and I do.

I hope this helps :)

Just an update, from a while ago.  Barocco has a Brazilian bean in a blue bag.  It is pretty good.  The other blends Itriesd don't have enough body for me.  I am partial to Sumatra so....it might be just me.  The people are friendly there.  But the special Brazil inthe blue bag is worth trying if are in that area
