Disappointing, after several previous visits with great coffee. The roast is just too dark - hard to draw out any real flavour notes.

Hi Camper, taking us a while to get back to you but a darker roast has rarely become a thing here at CB. 3 years here and we have never changed the roast profiles of our blends unless you were trying the single origin Vanuatu Gold coffee which has 3 roast profiles in it to achieve a good balance to be used in milk. We have just won a bronze for our Volcanic Bloom blend maybe give that a try if you hopefully give us another visit. cheers

After my last (positive) experience decided to come back for more. The Ethiopian Konga Single Origin espresso was amazing - notes of stone fruit and deliciously citrusy. Followed up with a flatwhite (Ona Hitman blend) which was perfectly made - deliciously creamy, rich and nutty. I really like the Ona coffees Cafeina which use. There's not a lot of Ona across Sydney, though after their owner (Sasa Sestic) won the world barista championship this year, I expect we'll see more and more. Lucky for me and others on Sydney's Northern Beaches, Cafeina makes great coffee.

Really enjoyed my flat white this morning. Perfectly made with well textured, creamy milk and a nicely balanced shot (chocolate and caramel notes and a hint of salt). The Ona Hitman blend cuts through the milk, no problem at all. Definitely worth coming back.

Glad I dropped by after a fruitless search for a decent wave. Firstly the situation & view is hard to beat. It really is right on the beach. The coffee - delicious flat white to get things started, followed by a nice SO filter brew. Service excellent.

I arrived an hour after the new Slayer was up and running. Perfect timing - a stunning flatwhite. Who knows what's possible when the new kit is fully run in! Really friendly staff. Bought a bag of beans that I thought were a little on the old side 😁

The morning drive to Clandestino became my daily ritual on the recent Noosa holiday. Was my favourite in the region. Great selection of beans on offer including one of the most SO's I've had - French Mission Sun Dried from Kenya. A truly delicious pour-over. Great to see the lighter roasts. Appealing setting, service good and staff happy to share their knowledge.

Nicely made flat white but as it was made from a quite dark roast I did not really enjoy it. Impossible to taste any of the softer and more complex flavour characteristics. Like the great majority of coffee in the region, the roasts are dark and more traditional at Little Cove. With so many bean options here, it would be good to see a couple with a lighter roast profile. Service was fantastic.

Back after a year. Such a fanastatic experience last on my visit unfortunately however not the same this time around. May have been a bad day. My flat white what was served too hot and the flavour pretty much all up front, lacking subtle flavour notes. Very friendly and efficient service.

Tale of two coffees. My first Flatwhite was amazing - perfectly textured milk, rich & creamy with a delicious finish. The second, just 10mins after the first, was made by a different barista and was OK but nothing special, milk not well textured and tepid, not hot. Rating is based on my first coffee which was above expectation.

I had to check if I'd come to the right place based on earlier reviews. Weak, under textured & watery flat white and lacking the friendly service I read about. Put it down to a rare miss and try again another day.

Up early as usual, I made the treck north when it was clear there were no waves on offer for the early surf. I started with white followed by a long black (Brazilian SO). The LB was excellent, FW a little stronger than I prefer but really well made. Service outstanding with the barista more than happy to share some know how and even gave me a small sample of an SO to try at home as a Pour-over. Love it.
