For the full review and fabulous photos visit: Cracking out the Beanhunter iPhone App we quickly established Clandestino as our go-to place for a decent brew. It wasn’t just decent though, we were genuinely blown away! Hidden away at the back of a gourmet food market store in an unassuming industrial estate out the back of Noosaville, Clandestino left us both stunned for the first couple of minutes as we took everything in. From the aeroplane hanging from the ceiling, to the fancy machines and coffee beans galore, to all the various coffee knick-knacks and apparatus that was on display for sale … this place puts most Brisbane roasteries to shame in terms of scope and style. We enjoyed sampling the usual fare: Renée had her piccolo, I had my long macchiato, mum had a cappuccino and dad a long black. All of which well met—and exceeded—our expectations for great coffee … however there was something very rare up on the coffee menu board that got me just a little bit excited: a ‘Clover’ coffee. Ryan then served us the coffee in a glass vessel with two cups … and I don’t think I’ve ever had a bigger build-up to trying a coffee before, except perhaps after watching Luke from LTD Espresso working his magic with a Syphon Filter! And we were not disappointed! I’ve had quite a lot of different filter coffees in my time, but this one was simply devine: delicate, soft, smooth, silky, amazing clarity of flavour, no heaviness whatsoever … it really was the best filter I tried thus far.
