For the full review and fabulous photos visit Coffee Anthology in Brisbane’s CBD is unique because it brings the heart of the Melbourne coffee scene to Brisbane’s doorstep. This would be the perfect venue for a Bean Brewding coffee tour. The exterior has a modern use of vertical wood and a courtyard with a surprising amount of seating for the CBD. There is some seating at a bar overlooking Adam and David as they work the La Marzocco Strada EP. The coffee menu is constantly changing and offers the best coffee roasters from Melbourne. On the espresso machine Adam pours the shots and David textures the Uncle Joe’s milk. Every dose is ground in the Mythos One grinders and carefully weighed. We ordered a round of espresso coffee, it came beautifully presented with an information card so we knew where it was from: short black and shlong from Axil Coffee Roasters, El Salvador Llano Grande; short black, shlong and piccolo from Padre Coffee, Daddy’s Girl blend. The Llano Grande exploded with blackcurrant, the Daddy’s Girl worthy of purchasing a bag and taking home. Round two was filter coffee through a V60. David selected a Panama Geisha Esmerelda Mario San Jose roasted by Dukes Coffee. There was a cacophony of flavours with Tangerine upfront and when cooled a taste of white chocolate. We could not believe it, never had we experienced white chocolate … coffee never stops amazing us. We only had ten minutes spare. ‘David can make a syphon in five,’ said Adam. David lovingly prepared us syphon coffee using an Ethiopian Tabletop Sunny single origin roasted by Proud Mary Coffee. As soon as we sipped we knew it was worth staying for. Sweet strawberries popped from the cup, so sweet and delightful. Coffee Anthology in Brisbane’s CBD is certainly noteworthy offering the best of Melbourne coffee prepared and served with passion.
