Gordon street garage
Real fancy new rostery just popped up on Gordon street near harbourtown with an impressive setup much like small print in town. Went in yesterday and was a shame they haven't started roasting though still had some yummy offerings on filter from 5senses. Food looked amazing and nice staff too! will definitely want to check it out when they get the roaster running
Well you best get there this week, we stopped in on Thursday night for a takeout and the Barista said they start roasting as of next week. I can confirm the coffee was very good, nice licorish and caramel flavours.
The place has a little creatures vibe at night, but smarter dressed.

I walked past this on friday arvo. Looks good. The 'open late' sign is promising also.
Great to see some more places popping up, and doing things a little differently.
they've been putting their roasts on offer for the last 2 weeks now and finally got a chance to pop in the other day for a quick double espresso - delightful! had the 'mano a mano' blend: from what my very limited palate could tell, i thought it had a refreshing lack of an acidic bite to it while still having a distinctly fruity body (berries?) with a nice caramel finish. would definitely head in again when i have the chance!
Pourover at $10? Questionable, it was very good though. It was a Panama (H-something? Not a Geisha) Strawberries, fruity and sweet. My Dad had a long black, i think it was the mano e mano blend, that was nice but as it cooled it sorta went downhill (or maybe that was cause the pourover got better ahahaha)
Food wise its an absolutely ripoff, its nice but doesn't justify the obviously inflated cost.
