The Brûlerie des Monts: A Tale of Passion. The founder, Howard Sauvé, was driven by a deep passion for the craft of roasting coffee and entrepreneurship.
After honing his skills in Montreal’s coffee roasting scene for over fifteen years, Howard fulfilled a lifelong dream. On June 30, 1995, he opened his own artisanal roasting houses with a clear commitment: to serve the finest coffee in the Laurentides.
The Brûlerie des Monts is also a story of love and partnership between Howard and his wife, Elizabeth-Ann Cochrane, affectionately known as Betty, a valuable ally in the Brûlerie’s adventure.
Additionally, the Brûlerie des Monts is a tale of falling in love with the historic building that houses the roastery at the intersection of Principale and de l’Église streets, witnessing the cheerful echoes of satisfied customers and the enchanting aroma of freshly roasted coffee.
