Pilot Coffee roasters had been on my radar for a couple of years, but every single time I got up to the GTA, I had a jillion new Starbucks to wisit.

This time around the number of new Starbucks was still pretty high, a dozen, but since one of them was just a few kilometres from Pilot, I forced myself to make the time to pop in.

This is their tasting room, where they roast and host presentations, and as my excellent Costa Rican pour over was being prepared, I noticed that they employ an unusual kettle.

I've never seen one like that before, and the reason is that one of the Pilot baristas actually inwented it!

Regarding the space itself, it has that minimalist quality that I like, but I'm not sure that it's suitable for hanging out and working.
