Thundergod reviewed Gumption by Coffee Alchemy
I braved public transport to try Hazel's new venture. I ordered an espresso and a flat white (as well as stocking up on some beans for home). I took a seat on a stool at one of the benches outside the shop. You get to people watch shoppers in The Strand while drinking your coffee. Or maybe they are watching you..... My espresso was made with an El Salvadore Peaberry. It felt a bit thin and had a buttery hint to it as well as being smooth and balanced. I've had better at Marrickville but this one was still better than a lot of places. My flat white was made with the usual house blend and was up to expectations. It was worth the trip into the city. If you work nearby, lucky you. Give them a try.
