I'm not totally sure how to describe the aesthetic of this little shopping centre cafe in Kiama...somewhere between industrial and australiana. I guess I'll have to go with industrial australiana, a genre all of its own. A (working) cold drip dominates the space visually. More importantly, the coffee is good and the service excellent. I drank a double ristretto piccolo on the house blend (no SO available). It was very good. Indeed good enough for a second, which I ordered. Fast and friendly, as a morning coffee shot should be. Quality a fair bit better than one might expect for a centre cafe. Recommended.
Coffee Guru was recommended to me by a friend when he found out I was in Kiama. This one is located within the Centro Shopping Centre not too far from the front entrance. The store is fitted out with coffee equipment around and about. There's a bag sealer to be seen and a Gino Rossi conical grinder on a shelf as a display piece. It was a hot day so we enquired whether they could make a frappe. After a bit of discussion and agreement their version of a frappe was delivered to our table. It was given the thumbs up by my companion. I ordered a flat white. The milk was a little on the hot side but fortunately hadn't been heated enough to spoil the texture of the milk. The coffee taste was smooth and pleasant. It's nice to know there's another place in Kiama where a decent coffee can be found. The service from the staff was good. Atmosphere: It's in a shopping centre.
