Inside the Toronto Coffee Conspiracy - The Globe and Mail

This is the first meeting of the Toronto Coffee Conspiracy (TCC for short), a united group of like-minded “third wave” independent cafés hoping to spread and promote café culture throughout the city.

The seven-shop collective is united by a common set of principles, which, according to Matthew Taylor, Mercury Espresso Bar co-owner and initial organizer of the TCC, include “a focus on quality, freshness, and a desire to help the industry really move forward.”

“The exciting thing about this current surge in the coffee industry is that it's run by a lot of young, passionate people,” says TCC member Matt Lee, owner of Manic Coffee.
Officially launching on April 20 with a geographically disparate group of cafés – Mercury, Blondie's, Lit Espresso Bar, Manic Coffee, Crema, Dark Horse, and Sam James Espresso Bar – TCC will start modestly.

The initial promotion, a “dis-loyalty card,” will encourage customers to visit the whole range of participating cafés by rewarding them with a free coffee. This insurrectionist tool also renders them to eligible to judge “signature drinks” competitions.

The seven shops all aim for transparency, emphasizing the origin of the beans and printing the roasting date directly on the bag: freshly roasted yield more flavour.

“One of the goals of the TCC is to show people the difference in quality between our shops and something like a Starbucks,” says Alex Tran, co-manager of Blondie's. “We all share the same framework, but we also each have a distinct personality and we want people to notice that too.”
