Coffee Roasteries are popping up all over Ottawa. But one of the biggies is Bridgehead. When offered the chance to expand outside Ottawa the local chain decided to pass but instead open up their own Roastery just off of Preston Street at 130 Anderson.

I may not drink coffee, but I still love the smell!

Why yes, that is a cement mixer in the back. They have customized it to fit their large barrels made of food grade plastic and use it as part of the roasting process for the beans. Clever.

And now for the real reason I’m here… ginger cookies and tea!
