With patio season in full swing, we turned to our community for tips to kick our happy hour up a notch. Andréanne Bissonnette is a PhD candidate in political science from Montreal, Canada, but this linen lover caught our eye capturing content after our own heart—coffee. She says while most of her days are spent in a book or teaching, she lives for DIY home projects and her morning brew. (Uhm, are we related?)


"It's a simple ritual, but a pause that I cherish before starting my work day. My love for coffee comes from a trip to Australia, the many days I spent in coffee shops in Montreal writing my MA dissertation and my time as a barista, bringing joy to people's days."

Move over margarita, coffee is having a moment.
