gesamtkunstwerk reviewed Addison and Steele
forward-thinking like a good dystopian novel, addison & steele pride themselves on being purveyors of only the finest ostentation. it's the first cafe i've encountered with an ego of its own. but it is also i cafe i hate to love; the espresso is genuinely good in its process, overture and quality. a&s is renowned for their accessibility to alternative brewing methods, flanking the space with syphons, v60 beakers and instruments. the espresso shots are larger than standard, providing both a juicier body and a subtler acidity. putting their flamboyance aside, a&s addresses its mission of producing dignified espresso on a level of detail and competence rarely breached in perth.
