    Espresso was not amazing, had an almost burnt aftertaste, the barista knew the roast needed some work. FW follow-up was spot on. They certainly show a love of making great coffee here

    Lovely coffee, but I think I chose a busy time to come in. Would love to come in when a bit quieter, to soak it all in.

    Lovely service

    These guys really know what they are doing. One of the first to really push the alternate brews such as v60 and chemexa long time ago. Espresso is always amazing throught he impressive Slayer machine and the baristas are all very well trained. i would travel 10km's past 10 cafes to go here.

    Very nice setup and knowledgeable baristas, my espresso was ok but my latte was nice and creamy, very nice nuts flavours.

    Really good setup with knowledges baristas and amazing food. They sell cold drip in little bottles and I had to take two with me back to Melbourne. A french manager quite nice give me great coffee experience.
    I highly recommend this place for anyone around Crownest.

    This place looked the best in the area and it didn't disappoint. Great coffee, nice service staff and it was a bright sunny day so we sat outside which was awesome. A cool vibe so good place to crush a few long blacks.

    The best coffee I had in a very long time. It was delicious and well roasted. Better than any coffee in the City. Will be back for sure.

    Nice setup. They've got all of the best equipment. My brother and I had their single from Kenya (can't recall the name) as an espresso. It wasn't so bad. It felt a little like it had separated though. The crema was so thick (brother mentioned something about mud), that it left the rest of the... Read more

    It's been way too long since my last visit.

    Back after 10 months to check out if the coffee is still good. Found out that all their FWs are made with a double shot ristretto- my preference these days. Service a little slow but the wait was worth it. Excellent aroma, flavour with some lingering bitterness. This is coffee!😃

    Had a spare 30 minutes to pop out of the city on my trip down South to Sydney and a local mate of mine broughte to this gold mine of a cafe.... The quality of coffee produced is nek level! Was depressed however that they had turned the Slayer off early in the day, but that was a minute thing... Read more

    Nice rich coffee, but not too bitter and friendly service. They certainly seem to know their stuff.

    With the office pretty quiet it felt a bit like Christmas Eve so I took the opportunity to head to my favorite local. Had a seriously good FW and a stimulating chat on all things coffee with Keith, the owner. Came away with a whole lot more knowledge...and a delicious acidic 'zing' on the sides of... Read more

    Having recently moved to soy for health reasons I ordered a soy latte, while my partner had a regular latte. Both were well prepared, looked good and my soy latte tasted just like a regular latte - and it was excellent. Right temperature, right size and smooth.

    I like the longer hours though the Slayer was closed when I went in for a ristretto. Lots of seating options. Real coffee vibe. The boss was happy to talk shop too.

    I was a long time customer of this establishment, religiously I would go there for a coffee, some times twice a day. But with a large staff turnover the coffee is BAD, often with a bitter after taste. The barista there are great and always make you feel welcome, hence the high score for Service,... Read more
