Update, had to head back to Lucianos befor heading to Wellington and it was well worth the effort.
Went for a larger flat white this time. It was sweet, milk chocolate all the way. Followed by 2 Brazilian SO ristrettos, both very nice especially the last one.
Great guy more than happy to talk coffee and doing a great job.
Shame about Wellington, not even going to bother with a write up.
In short "a series of dissapointments "
