Whenever someone asks me where the best coffee in St. John’s is, I always direct him or her to Jumping Bean. For me, there isn’t another coffee spot in town that even comes close.
Much of this has to do with their unique blends special to Newfoundland and Labrador. My favourite for years has been the Screech rum flavour. Screech, if you didn’t know, is Newfoundland’s special Jamaican rum. The rum is surprisingly smooth in coffee form.
Lately, however, I’ve been brewing giant pots of Screech Spiced rum flavoured coffee, as well as their Screech Honey. My roommates and I particularly love the smell of honey coffee with a hint of rum greeting us in the morning as we dodge kittens and flying knives in preparation for a busy workday. (Just kidding about the flying knives. Mostly.)
I also love their uncluttered café on Harvey Road, where I usually prefer to spend my working hours rather than the busier spots downtown on Water Street and Duckworth.
I guess Jumping Bean got tailwind of my coffee fervor, because they’ve offered me a bag of Screech Honey and Screech Spiced to give away to two lucky Canadian readers. Consider it my last-minute Christmas present to you for being such swell readers all year round. Yer welcome.
