Funky little espresso bar, awesome food. Coffee, two house blends and seasonal single origin each week.
I decided to try a decaf as a change. I know that their normal coffee is excellent but why not a decaf. Anyway, my decaf latte was delivered and......... I was impressed, truly. The flavour was comparable to a normal coffee - chocolate, nutty and spices completed the melange of the flavors. And the moussy consistency of the crema of the milk really lifted the the pleasure I experienced drinking a decaffeinated coffee. In fact I asked Ken (the owner) if he really served me a decaf. He assured me that he did. So for those of you who need a coffee but not so much the caffeine, I would recommend that you try it.
The best coffee in Newcastle, hands down. Great service, the food is ridiculously good... I think I have a serious addiction to The Famous Reuben! Kenn, Vicky & the team know their stuff when it comes to coffee - it's one of the very few places in town that you can get a great coffee EVERY time.
The ‘barista breakfast’ I had was sensational selection of three coffees. Beans can be purchased in store and the breakfast is definitely one to take your time with to enjoy I started with the espresso- Jose ulbeny - and was impressed - delicious. Peach, macerated strawberry and candied lime, and the candied lime really came through. Next was the piccolo - Marcos Navarro - maple syrup, milk chocolate, cherry As normal for Ken and the xtraction team the milk was spot on, good flavour and strength really enjoyed this. Finishing with Jorge arias -kiwi, apricot and lemon syrup. This was really smooth with a hint of sweetness I found myself half way through before realising. I was surprised by this as I normally stick to espresso. Really enjoyed the different flavours and all great unique flavours. As always great service
