    Recently, One Drop has changed hands. I've been hoping that the standard I have come to expect would be upheld. I have been pleasantly surprised. The new owners of One Drop have taken a great cafe and made it even better. Their standards of service, standards of coffee, the range of coffee they... Read more

    On my way to visit a friend of mine who unfortunately ended up in hospital recently with several broken bones, I decided that the best way to cheer him up a bit would be with a special coffee. One Drop came to mind initially because of it's ideal location just near RBH, but I also have such fond... Read more

    Wow. Possibly the best Short Macchiato I have ever had :-| Absolutely amazing. It was a double shot, with absolutely no - not even a hint - of bitterness right down to the very last (appropriately) drop. The guys are great, the white LM is beautiful, and mazzers are great. The only problem is,... Read more

    Another specialty coffee bar has opened in Brisbane and it is good! One Drop has been open for less than a week and it is quickly gaining popularity. With the addition of One Drop there are now three espresso bars at the foyer of the Cardno building. My guess is before we know it, One Drop will... Read more

    I went to One Drops several times based on a recommendation from a coffee snob friend. I enjoyed my coffee at each visit. I normally take a seat at a communal table and read newspaper. Coffee there is always good, food is enjoyable, service is good, but it cannot find any wow factors that make me... Read more

    I had a delicious flat white at this very interesting cafe. When I was there there were a number of people who were very interested in coffee passing through. The service was great, the ambiance is good. The only slight reservation I have is that given the wonderful coffee and great service whether... Read more

    The guys were just crusin along making coffees, but worth the wait as the coffee was up there. Great brew and smooth velvety milk. Best I've had in the precinct.

    I have had some great coffee from one drop, but of late the consistency appears to be dipping. They still make good coffee, but a few recently have missed that high standard I am use to from the guys (bit weak or lacking and milk a little too hot), busy periods can cause a long wait and im not sure...

    Great Coffee as usual! One of the few Cafes open nice and early for an airport drop-off. Had a smooth house blend flat white followed by the single origin Mecca El Salvador! Always worth a visit.

    Set up in the corner of a high rise lobby, one drop pumps out coffees while the other surrounding coffee shops watch in awe. Congrats to the nice couple finally sold it and moving to a better location.

    WOW! though a little noisy for our early morning meeting this place did not dissapoint. Certainly one of the best coffee's in Brisbane. We ordered a picolo, flat white, latte on a tripple ristreto base and a long machiato, all of which went down beautifully. Smooth, rich and creamy with the... Read more

    the pictures on beanhunter are deceiving, one drop is tiny! set up in the corner of a high rise lobby, one drop pumps out coffees while the other surrounding coffee shops watch in awe. the reason is in the cup.

    I'm going out with Blaine, na not really, I just wish I was AFTER HAVING SUCH A WONDERFUL COFFEE.

    Maximum credit to ben for such perfectly textured milk poured elegantly to create the most exhilarating latte art my eyes have ever feasted upon.

    Love this place. Awesome coffee, awesome staff, great service! Cafe is nicely situated in the hallway of a bigger building but they pull it off nicely.

    Lots of places make coffee, but few really focus on it as an art form. One Drop is my local workplace cafe and my favorite. The staff know my name and my order. They banter with all their customers and order in specialty, exotic coffees for people who line trying something different. Excellent... Read more
