Reviews of The Reformatory Caffeine Lab
Came today as I finally had a day off, I work as a barista in the city and came to check out this place as everyone is been talking about it. Now I know why, it is such a cool space, best coffee experience I ever have, the equipment is tops, the energy of the owner and the barista is amazing as soon as you walk in the place. The mural artwork is breathtaking. Well done and thanks for all the coffees you serve me today, specially the Aeropress as it was the best brew I ever had. Andrew,
Came over yesterday with my girlfriend and ask the baristas what they will recommend. Before we got offered the coffee the owner gave us a very clear explanation of every drink they are serving, His passion and attention to customer is incredible. After he went through the coffee menu we decided to try a Long Black, a espresso and a filter from Ethiopia. All of them were superb, done with perfection, specially the espresso. If you are a coffee fanatic this is the place to come and visit. We arrived at 11 and it was packed, only problem was we needed to wait around 5 mins to get one of those tables attached to the wall but it was worth the wait :)
YES YES YES. Finally I got time today to visit this place. Crazy space, easily the best coffee in Sydney. Try Honduras as espresso WOW, then followed by a Gesha that apparently they used in the brewers competition and I never experienced something like it. Service is incredible and not to mention the coffee education you receive here. It looks like my favourite place is now official.
After hearing so many things about this place I decided t visit them last Saturday. My coffee experience began with a filter coffee, then a piccolo and to finish I had a Long black. The consistency of the 3 coffees was very good just not to say perfect and the attention to detail in the coffee presentation is unique. Shame there is no seating but if you are passionate a bout coffee I don't think there are many places like this in Sydney.
I'm based in Brisbane and came to Sydney to check new cafes as I'm working at the moment in opening a shop @ the fortitude valley. Try Gumption and was ok, Pablo and Rusty CBD very busy but no quality, then I decided to head to Surry Hills were all the big names are, Had a piccolo at Single Origin and was quite weak, then I had been told to go and check The Reformatory and Wakkkkk what a place. The barista hit my palate with a Yemen espresso and was incredibly balance, then Try Filter from Nicaragua and the sweetness of that coffee was in another level. Is a dream shop for any barista, what a place.
