Blackstar coffee has lead Brisbane's coffee scene for the past eight years. As the flagship store to one of Brisbane's best roasters, the cafe offers their signature blend alongside a range of delicious single origins. Blackstar Coffee recently installed their extensive brew bar showcasing some of Project Origins finest. Blackstar Kitchen has introduced a whole world of flavours to the West End favourite. The new menu features a wide range of conscious, clean and vegan eats including salads, sandwiches and smoothies. My Plate Clean Treats also make an appearance on the line up.
I used to go out of my way to get a great coffee from this place. I don't know what happened but these days the staff look at you as if they're dying of cancer & would rather be on chemo than have to serve a customer let alone put effort into the coffee. You've lost a dedicated customer who used to brag about your coffee.
Didn't get a chance to experience service as I ducked in and out, but it did seem like a cute place I'd like to make a regular in my routine! Then I opened one of the two the cold brews I purchased (I'm on the hunt for the best cold coffees Brisbane has to offer) I take a sip and what a surprise, it's loaded with added sugar. I never ever have sweetener in my coffee, good quality brews don't require it and I avoid sugar/diabetes when I can. I don't care if it's 'luxury' and 'natural' as the BACK of the bottle says, I feel like I should get a choice. Definitely won't be back as today's purchases are going down the drain. Would highly recommend for people who love sweet (read: bitter covered up with sugar 🙄) coffee obviously.
Really good coffee. They have brown sugar which we don't normally have for coffee as we think brown sugar is too sweet for coffee but it goes well with their one. We had 2 cups each since it was small size and I tasted with sugar and without sugar. Do they normally serve you a small if you don't order a large? Wonder if they have large size...
