    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!馃槂

    This is one of the best spots in Sydney for coffee. Product is locally roasted and the cold drip is unreal. The only reason they don't get a 10 is because of the annoying barista (the English guy, with the striking dirty blonde hair). If they get rid of him it becomes the number one store in town.

    these guys are coffee serious, however this am's barista was a bit over generous on the milk temperature so not up to the excellent coffee they usually produce

    I'm not a big fan of an organic coffee, but this one is good. A bit bubbly, but it's good.

    Consistently great coffee. Made brilliantly. Great service. Busy on weekend mornings. Such a great location and awesome cafe atmosphere. It's only a shame they have a limited menu and don't do poached eggs or other brunch-style food.

    Really cool set up. Clocks on the wall for Ethiopia, Nicaragua and Sumatra are a nice touch. Obvs on site roasting, great retail section. I started with a single origin espresso from Costa Rica and followed with an Eithiopian Heirloom as a pour over. Great service, free wi fi. Didnt eat this time... Read more

    Excellent coffee every time - full & deep flavors - even a take away gets some nice latte art. 100% recommend to friends !

    Fantastic long black! Best I've had in at least 2 years. The place is a little cramped, but the coffee is well worth it.

    Nice coffee presentation, crema could be fuller, but slightly bitter aftertaste. Great decor, music de Costa Rica... together with a good cinnamon scroll!

    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

    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.
