Here's where to find the best pour over coffee in Toronto.

The Queen West cafe is famous for its pour over coffee featuring an ever changing selection of North American and European beans (sold at market price).

Before ordering a single-cup coffee ($3.50) at this Annex cafe, customers can read up on the tasting notes and sniff two to three weekly selections of single origin beans in test tubes. Look forward to selections from local roasters like Social Coffee and Anchored Coffee, plus imports like Parlor Coffee from Brooklyn.
