Ottawa has no shortage of cute, trendy coffee shops to choose from!
Coffee is one of the most consumed beverages in numerous countries around the world, and Canada is no exception! In fact, according to an annual coffee drinking study commissioned by the Coffee Association of Canada in October 2020, Canadians consume coffee more often than any other drink — even more than tap water! Data found by market research company Statista also shows that an average of 4.53 million 60-kilogram bags were consumed in Canada over the last 10 years.
Nobody can be blamed for being hooked on coffee: its strong, rich aroma and flavour are undeniably stimulating and addictive (largely due to its caffeine content), and you generally can customize it completely to your liking. Plus, there’s just something about sipping on a soothing hot cup o’ Joe when it’s cold and frosty outside that adds a perfect touch of warmth and comfort to our chilly winter days.
Many people automatically default to grabbing their brews from a coffee chain like Tim Hortons or Starbucks — and there’s nothing wrong with that! However, it’s hard to beat the gratifying experience of enjoying some freshly brewed coffee in one of the many warm, cozy cafés and coffee shops in Ottawa.
