FurrowedBrow reviewed NORMCORE COFFEE ROASTERS
A big juicy strawberry sweet Natural Panama Geisha (Hacienda La Emeralda) as an espresso. Open out into a mix of tropical fruit with something more tannin-like on the aftertaste - outstanding. Same beans, only washed, for a pour over gave a floral aroma, creamy mouthfeel and peachy flavour - very tasty
FurrowedBrow reviewed Xtraction Espresso
Washed Ethiopian from Veneziano for the espresso gave a silky tangerine-grapefruit cup. Nice berries to the batch as a traveller. This is definitely a go-to coffee location when I’m in Newcastle. Good to see them in their new site next door.

Double espresso on White Horse has some nice cherry to start becoming more cocoa. Cold brew came with ice and was rather mild in flavour - would have been more flavour as it warmed but then the ice would melt and dilute the flavour.
FurrowedBrow reviewed Mossy Cafe
Delicious blueberries to the double espresso on an Ethiopian natural peaberry. Filter on the same, had some jammy gear going on with clean berries from start to finish. The Guerrilla Roasters’ beans are roasted onsite, and chatting to Matt in the roastery, the passion for great coffee was obvious.

Robust cup with a liquorice edge to the Ona Washed Ethiopian espresso, more balanced than the same beans at Ona Fyshwick yesterday. Filter Panama had some tasty chocolate notes with some cheeky acidity and a buttery texture - real nice.
FurrowedBrow reviewed Cavalier Specialty Coffee
Ethiopian Five Senses espresso was still pretty robust with some more acidity today Made of Many batch had something cola and orange going on but didn’t quite have that clean finish that many of the batch brews do here.
