Bolt Coffee Roasters is the culmination of a dream for roaster and barista Steve Lomax. Coming to coffee by the usual unconventional path (mechanics, stores, radio voiceovers, sales and demolition) he lives and breathes the stuff. With an exceptionally sensitive palate and encyclopedic knowledge of bean origins, nuances of flavour, blend ratios and how to get the best of every extraction, he raises your morning macchiato to an art form.
Bolt not only offers me simply the best coffee in Perth, but provides a valuable community space, not unlike the traditional village square, where people can gather together under the trees, to drink coffee, philosophise, and generally solve the world's problems. Its quirky and rustic, quite unlike any other coffee shop in Perth, and Steve really knows his beans, roasts onsite, and produces the best Long Mac!
This is my local - I hit the jackpot! Consistently 5 star coffee that will have you sighing in happiness after the first sip, a couple of rascals behind the counter who do genuine service like a boss, and a dinky little alfresco area that is serene and wonderful to relax in. Just go there! (but leave your pretentions at the entry gate ;)
With a severe lack of pretentiousness, this coffee stop (not really a cafe) is brilliant, not to mention the in-house, freshly roasted coffee. I had an extra shot latte and my wife had an almond flat white - both were spot on. Being a roaster myself, I loved the home grown roasting gear. Amazing what can be achieved without the bells and whistles.
