If you know me, you know that I can’t start my day without a quality cup of coffee (like most of us anyway 😉 ). Since I work in a big city, I am spoiled with opportunities to try different coffees. So along with the great articles from the Carnival of Money Hackers, you will discover the top choices of coffee tasted in Montreal 😉


#1 Starbucks Coffee – Editor’s Pick

Of all the coffee makers, if I can choose one that will make my day each time I take a sip, it has to be Starbucks. In fact, there is nothing better than a Venti Corsé! Here are the best articles from the Carnivals:

PT presents A Money Experiment: A Week Without Spending posted at PT Money.

Baker presents How I paid off $15,000 in 9 months by selling my ‘Stuff’ on Ebay posted at Man Vs. Debt.

#2 Second Cup – Money Management

While I really like Starbucks, there are none close to my office. However, there is a Second Cup nearby that serves the best Coffee Caramelo in town! So each time I buy a Second Cup, I save time and money compared to Starbucks, this is what we call money management 😉

café dépôt

#3 Café Dépôt – Investing

What I like about Café Dépôt, it’s their accessibility (very useful to have a coffee shop in the building when it rains/snows!) and their fidelity card. Each time you buy a coffee, you are closer to earning a free one in return… this is what I call a long term investment 😉

tim hortons

#4 Tim Horton’s – Frugality and Debt Management

It may not be the best coffee in town but their Moka is far from being bad. Since it cost about half the price of a coffee from my top 3 coffee makers, we can call it a smart and frugal choice!

#5 McDonald’s – Other

McDonald’s new Arabica coffee is surprising as it doesn’t taste like a Hamburger 😉 Seriously, you can find McDonald’s everywhere (except Iceland) and their coffee could help you make it through the day. Here are the remaining Carnival entries:

working from home this morning can I can tell that even though my coffee doesn’t come Starbucks… it still tastes amazing 😉

Love the coffee theme. Thanks for hosting and including my soap opera episode.

Thanks for hosting Mike!

I’m always tickled by the themes that carnival hosts come up with. Thanks for hosting and I’m very humbled to be an editor’s pick.

I’d missed Baker’s ebay post so I’m glad I got pointed back to it.

Ahh, this reminds me, I have a pot brewing right now! Thanks for hosting.

Out of all the companies you mention, I like a nice Starbucks coffee the most, followed by Timmy’s and then Second Cup.

From an investment point of view, I have some shares in Second Cup (SCU.UN) and it pays a nice distribution in comparison to Starbucks, Tim’s and the others, and this could be something to consider if you are interested in diversification while getting paid a nice distribution.


Thanks a lot for hosting!
