Fans of the old IRA at Tugan will LOVE their new home at the Dust Temple and the co-located Hinge Gallery Art space. This isn't some confected arty nightmare, it's to me at least one of the most comfortable, welcoming and vibrant coffee venues I have had the pleasure of drinking in - period. Of course the coffee has to match, and these guys are smashing out a great well balanced blend from the Marvel Street team from a PID modded La Marzocca Linea with it's innards gloriously exposed like a piece in the gallery. The great spiral of copper piping decending from the ceiling into the machine adds to the drama as it throbs with every input. Service is relaxed, friendly and consistent and Fl.Oz and the associated art/music space may well have set a new benchmark for a coffee experience on the Gold Coast. PS - A new Synesso apparently is coming but I for one would be disappointed to see the quirky Linea go which is currently punching well above it's weight with a little help from it's intuitive baristas.
