I drink long blacks. Over the last 6 months, I have been to Pourboy 4 times (at the invite of others). Each time my coffee has been very sour and I mean puckered cheeks, lemon sour - whether this is underextraction or a roast issue I am not sure. I even checked they were using their proclaimed "Each day we offer a selectively sourced single origin coffee, roasted specifically to be enjoyed black" ......... Service is generally good and I haven't tried much food ......
Walked in during a real busy time and weaved my way through to the counter. Everyone looked rather busy but quite jovial and I was served quite promptly. I ordered an espresso and waited with the rest of the people waiting for their take aways. I didn't see any action behind the coffee machine so I prepared myself for a long wait. The barista arrive shortly and sent out a couple of coffees with food and then proceeded to hand me an espresso in porcelain. A real pleasant surprise, I felt almost like I was at an espresso bar in Italy only being served good coffee! Smashed it down and went on my way with a spring in my step. Place to go this side of town!
