Disappointed with the coffee, it was very weak. I spoke with two friends who also had the same experience... We had the coffees and cake there. They only offered take away cups (because it was close to closing time) although the cake was served on a normal plate.

Ordered my usual double ristretto latte... Coffee was stale and overextracted. Milk was past even cappuccino levels of froth. The redeeming quality was the atmosphere in the café. Cute decorations; an old style percolator on display. I'd give them another chance if I was a local, but not a great first impression.

I have now been to Fuel twice. I was initially hopeful as I saw they use Bonsoy however was then dubious as the barista explained she did not drink coffee herself and therefore couldn't recommend a particular blend... I chose the 'octane' which is apparently a stronger taste however I didn't find it bold in flavour at all. The milk was also so over-heated it tasted like So Good. Almost undrinkable. On my current trip to Townsville I stopped in again (it's really close to work...) and asked a different barista to please not overheat the soy. This time the coffee was weak in flavour but not unpleasant. Perhaps a double shot would do the trick :)

Difficult one to review, good coffee, Mixed with friendly service muddled with a crammed location - walking past dogs and alike to get to the front door. If you can get Past that, the coffee is one you will go Back for

I am not a Townsville local but I have already been to this place twice. It is a very unassuming place that you wouldn't expect to find so close to the airport. Outside it looks more like a roadside food stop, once you step inside and feast your eyes on their vintage Bezzera you know that this place must take their coffee with a dose of pride. Always a good sign. I have had two espressos from the here, now this isn't really a cafe where you can park yourself for a couple of hours and solve global issues. It's quick stop, almost 'hole in the wall' type of place. Now to the coffee, very European taste here. Slight caramel with a slight bitterness to it also. If you prefer mild coffees order a milk based one and throw in a sugar. For me though I like the taste. Check it out when you are in Townsville.
