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.
Funky little espresso bar, awesome food. Coffee, two house blends and seasonal single origin each week.
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
Best Espresso ever.... Full of flavour. Than came the double shot Flat white... This place has the best coffee I have ever had. Going back to experience the hit again and see what coffee they use. The Pitaya bowl is fantastic. Oct 19 currently being renovated.... but still open
