Bridgehead bought by Second Cup [Food/Vendor]

Dec 5
I was deeply saddened to read this: ottawacitizen.com

I visited the Bridgehead roastery in Little Italy during Doors Open Ottawa a few years ago and I was impressed to see how much care they put into their coffee. They visited the plantations and met the farmers and they seemed to put a lot of love into their product. I hope Second Cup continues this.

On the one hand, hey, local business prospers, sells, makes millions, good for her!

Second Cup fell out of my preferences years ago, because i preferred Starbucks (i know, i know, it's trendy to hate on the 'bucks) and, amusingly, Bridgehead (moreso than Starbucks actually). Then a couple of years ago Bridgehead changed their roast (i think they moved in house and changed beans?) and i like it less. Be curious to see whether this brings me back to either at all, or the opposite.

In my opinion, Second Cup tends to have the best cold brew of the big shops, so I do enjoy that.

So, I am hesistantly curious here.

Sounds like nothing will change and it may actually be better.

Their coffee is terrible anyway so I don't care :-) Not sure how they manage to both burn and underroast it, but they do.

I think they may attract a slightly different demographic. All I know is I have a Bridgehead, Second Cup, Starbucks, and Smiling Goat all within a 5 minute walk of my house, and I donít go to any of them. . . . ..

@zymurgist ;
too high of a roasting temp, the outside is scorched and the inside is under roasted.
