BeanBrewding reviewed Jacu Espresso
For the full review and fabulous photos visit http://bit.ly/Jacu_NP The Jacu bird may be endangered but you are in no danger of bad coffee at Jacu Espresso in Norman Park. Although located at the busy intersection of Bennetts Road and Macrossan Avenue, you don’t seem to notice the traffic once inside, even in peak hour. There are plenty of re-used materials in the furniture and decor making for great photography. Locals enjoy the coffee and unpretentious breakfast menu with home-baked goods… we had to indulge. So to begin, it was three shlongs made on a single origin washed Rwandan from Veneziano Coffee Roasters. Our host Tom told us to expect syrupy plum and peach flavours, he was not wrong on the syrup … delightful. A great looking crema from the La Marzocco Linea added to the enjoyment. Up next was a treat from Panama Silvia poured through a V60. Tom served up a Geisha sourced by Ninety Plus and roasted by Veneziano. Some Geisha’s can be all talk and no walk … this one walked us to the moon! Tom uses a higher dose in his pour over recipe to bring out more body and opacity. After tasting you won’t need another coffee, this one is to savour. Even a devoted latte drinker will love it. With Tom receiving mentoring from Veneziano’s best, the coffee is only going to get better!
