We are an experimental coffee lab based in Toronto. Follow us @senseappeal to see what we've come up with.

With bag labels that look like the periodic table, Sense Appeal gives off the impression that their approach to coffee is a scientific and serious one. But it’s also a creatively collaborative lab. Their beans are scrutinized and chosen for each batch with the utmost care. The best part is they’re not looking to keep this knowledge to themselves. While they aim to broaden the coffee horizon, they also offer cupping tutorials, brewing nights and full courses on how to get into coffee roasting. They sell their own freshly roasted coffee beans by the half or full pound, starting as low as $10 per half. Batches include the “E” (Columbia), “Gn” Brazil, and “K” from Ethiopia. You can pick them up at their Spadina store or pop ‘em in an online cart the new-fashioned way.
